Teach him how to pack his own bag and toiletries. Explain what he has to do when he showers eg put clean clothes and towel into plastic bag. If he has to use sleeping bag, he needs to learn how to keep it.

Haha. We were just talking about the P5 camp and our only prep for DD is, 'don't call us'.

Kids started overnight camps in P4. Each has their own sleeping bags, cutlery sets, toiletry bag and torchlight. Even had to get track pants for leadership camps. DS has the most camps cos he's in scout. Has 2 camps in Jun hols and already went for 1 at the beginning of the year.

Overseas trips more challenging cos need to teach how to wash their stuff and pack luggage. Good thing not going for scouts overseas trip. Sure worry like mad!

Leadership camps normally run during the Jun hols. I recall DD organizing in P5 and P6. DS going for it as a scout.
