There’s nothing like receiving a care package while you’re away at IGGPPCamp!
Our beloved IGGPPCamp takes place from August 12-15 this year! Camp is a time for bonding with your troop, making friendship bracelets, eating s’mores, and of course – receiving camp care packages! Sign up for this swap to send and receive fun, geeky surprises to enjoy while away at camp.
- Sign ups open July 10 – July 17
- Matching emails sent July 18
- Mail your package by August 7
HOW IT WORKS
- For maximum surprise fun, this is a round robin swap. This means that the camper you send a package to is different from the camper who will send YOU a package!
- You’ll receive a matching email on July 18th from Camp Nurse Buffalo with more info on your recipient.
- Please mail your package promptly. The goal is for everyone to receive their package during camp. Keep in mind that international shipping can take 2 weeks or more to arrive!
- If you find yourself unable to finish your swap, PLEASE EMAIL NURSE BUFFALO firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP. Life happens, we understand – your recipient will be paired with a swap angel. Anyone who does not provide sufficient notice about dropping out of the swap may be banned from future swaps at IGGPPC staff discretion.
- You are required to read our club Terms & Conditions before participating in any swap. You must be at least 17 years old to participate.
- WE TAKE YOUR SAFETY SERIOUSLY. Please review our community safety guidelines before you sign up.
- International rates are quite expensive, so you may opt out of international shipping. We will do our best to honor your request, but this may not be possible. If you are unable to ship internationally please do not sign up for this swap.
WHAT GOES IN A CARE PACKAGE?
You’ll send goodies to be enjoyed at camp. Your package can have a geeky theme or you can just shower your recipient with random items such as snacks, candy, games, friendship bracelets, stickers, washi tape, toys. Be creative but also try to pick stuff your recipient will enjoy. And don’t forget a handwritten letter so your camper can get to know you!
SUGGESTED SPENDING LIMIT: $15 The money you spend on your care package is not as important as the thought behind each item you choose. The purpose of this swap is to spread the spirit of camp!
CALLING ALL SWAP ANGELS
Occasionally, a package gets lost or a participant has to drop out. We ask for campers to help out in these instances. Swap Angels are volunteers who go above and beyond to send an extra package to replace one that went missing.
This is a random act of kindness – you will not receive a package in return!
Becoming a swap angel is optional. Tick the check box on the form if you’d like to help out.
Swap Angels will be called up on at the end of August so replacement packages arrive promptly. If you’re selected, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to complete your mission.
