Dr. Margaret Chisolm, Johns Hopkins Medicine

Sanitary napkins (unused, please) tied onto a stick make excellent wicks for torches!

And as a corollary, not everyone who sets fires as a child grows up to be a sociopath . . .

Dr. Carl Streed Jr., Boston Medical Center

There was band camp: people are generally kinder outside of school/work. There was wilderness camp: only pack what you need. There was Boy Scout Camp: young adult leaders can in fact lead.

What do you think?

Dr. Sarah Clever, Johns Hopkins Medicine

Bug spray. What the stars look like when it’s really, really dark. Marshmallows toasted, not on fire (IMHO). Corollary: Reese’s peanut butter cups instead of chocolate (you’re welcome). And bug spray.

Dr. Rachel Salas, Johns Hopkins Medicine

Always shake out your clothes and shoes before putting them on!

Jocelyn Lee, MPH student, Macmaster University

Always bring an extra pair of socks or two! Dry feet are happy feet.
