There’s nothing like receiving a care package at IGGPPCamp!

Our beloved IGGPPCamp takes place in August! 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 at camp.

DEADLINES

  • SIGN UPS opens July 20 – 30
  • Matching emails sent July 31
  • Mail your package by August 11

WHAT GOES IN A CARE PACKAGE?

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 – goodies they can enjoy at camp! And don’t forget a handwritten letter so your camper can get to know you.

SUGGESTED SPENDING LIMIT: $20 The amount you spend isn’t as important as the thought behind the items you choose. The purpose of this swap is to spread the spirit of camp!

HOW IT WORKS

  • This is a round robin swap, which means the camper you send a package to is different from the camper sending YOU a package!
  • You’ll receive a matching email from Camp Nurse Buffalo with all the deetz on your recipient.
  • Please mail your package promptly. The goal is for everyone to receive their package during camp. Keep in mind international shipping can take 2 weeks or more to arrive!
  • If you’re unable to finish your swap, PLEASE EMAIL NURSE BUFFALO swaps@geekgirlpenpals.com ASAP. Life happens, we understand – your recipient will be paired with a swap angel. Anyone who does not provide 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 and community safety guidelines before signing up. You must be at least 17 years old to participate.
  • International rates are quite expensive, so you may opt out of international shipping. We’ll do our best to honor your request, but cannot guarantee you will be matched within your preferred shipping zone. If you are unable to ship internationally please do not sign up for this swap.

CALLING ALL SWAP ANGELS

Occasionally a package gets lost or a participant has to drop out. 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.

Show off your haul!

We LOVE to see what you receive. Post pictures to Discord under #camp-care-package-swap or tag @geekgirlpenpals on Instagram to be featured in our stories.

Can’t finish your swaps?

Life happens, we understand. If you’re unable to complete your swap, please notify Kara and all of your swap partners ASAP. Anyone who fails to complete a swap without notice may be banned from participating in future official swaps, at staff discretion.
