Whether heading off to summer camp or preparing for a long visit to grandma, a girl does not want to find herself without all of her necessities. Create a packing list for trips based on general items that most girls use frequently. Label all items with your girl's name to be sure they will come home with her at the end of her trip.

For a summer packing list, consider including clothes for warm days and cool nights. Pack several pairs of shorts, T-shirts and tank tops along with a few long-sleeved shirts and sweatshirts. Add a pair of jeans or trousers and a dressy outfit for a special event night. For a weeklong trip, pack enough underwear and bras for every day. Don't forget to throw a hat and rain jacket in the suitcase in case of foul weather. Also include flip-flops, tennis shoes, a pair of dressy shoes and several pairs of socks on your packing list. If swimming will be on the agenda, include two or more swimming costumes.

Depending on where your girl will be sleeping, it may be necessary to pack linens. Include a sleeping bag or a twin sheet set on your packing list, along with a pillow and pillowcase. An extra fleece blanket is useful for evening campfire singalongs or on top of the sleeping bag during chilly nights. Remember to pack bath towels and washcloths as well as pool/beach towels for swimming.

Health and Beauty
Remember to include basic toiletries. Pack a shower caddie and fill it with all of the items your girl will need. Include soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and toothpaste. Also pack a toothbrush and hair brush. Other important items to include are sunscreen, bug spray and any prescriptions, including glasses. Add feminine products to the packing list if the girl will need them.

Packing the right gear will help make your girl's trip go smoothly. Include a camera, flashlight with batteries and a water bottle. For letters home, tuck in some special stationery with a new pen and stamps. Pack any sports equipment that she might need, such as swim goggles, hiking stick, baseball/softball glove, day pack or water skis.
