Advice on sending a package:
*** Please contact us before mailing any packages! We have found that it is often easier (not to mention cheaper) to have things sent to people coming from the U.S. to visit that they bring to us in their luggage. With all of the short-term groups that the camp sees, there are many potential couriers.
If you do choose to mail a package, the easiest and cheapest way is to use the priority mail flat rate envelopes from USPS. The cost is $16.95 for however much you are able to cram inside it (up to 4 pounds). For larger, bulkier, and more fragile items, there are also priority mail flat rate boxes in various sizes.
Keep in mind that the larger the package, the more likely it is to get held up in customs. Less is more!
Be sure to pad and cushion everything well. Ziploc bags are great for containing potential leaks and spills, and also for protecting items in case the package gets wet.
