Kids Swim Suits for Summer Camp from Lands' End

Will your child be attending day camp this summer?  Here in our area with many families with two working parents, all of school aged children attend the area day camps all summer long. For the past few years, our daughter has attended a summer camp program located on a nearby historic farm.  Everyday they get some time in the pool, weather permitting of course.  So everyday, we have to pack a bag with her swim suit, towel, sun screen and bug spray.

Have you ever tried to wiggle back into a wet one piece tank suit? Not fun!  So I am a huge fan of two piece tankini suits for little girls.  I knew I wanted to find a two piece tankini style suit for my daughter's first year at day camp. As I looked at the new styles online, so many of them had double straps or criss-cross straps that could easily trip up a little girl getting changed by herself.  

I settled on a tankini with simple spaghetti straps in my daughter's favorite colors. I also bought the matching rash guard T-shirt.  By mid summer, I realized she was choosing to wear the rash guard T-shirt with her swim bottoms, skipping the tankini top all together.  

The next summer, she picked out swim shorts and a rash guard T-shirt in her favorite color.  With swimming everyday, sometimes twice a day, then throw in a beach vacation -- well she wore out two rash guard t-shirts that season.  This year, she doesn't even want a traditional swim suit.  She only wants the rash guard swim shirt with bottoms. All her friends are sporting the swim tees also.

Lands End has a great selection of both short and long sleeve t-shirts for boys and girls. The girls styles are cute and practical for summer camp.  I love this bright blue color long sleeve options for boys, paired with basic swim trunks.

Lands' End Swimwear for Kids

As an affiliate with Lands' End, I recently had the opportunity to participate in an event to learn more about their swimwear. The Lands' End kids swimwear is rated as excellent using a relatively new rating designation for sun protective textiles and clothing, called UPF or Ultraviolet Protection Factor. This means it blocks 98% of harmful UV rays.  The fabric is quick drying so it is comfortable in and out of the water. And even better, the color is fade resistant so it will look good all summer long.  They carry the kids swimwear in extended sizes including toddler, plus and husky for most items.

"Have you ever tried to wrestle a toddler back into a wet one piece tank style swim suit? Skip the drama and opt for the tankini suits for young girls. Having separate pull on bottoms make trips to the rest room much easier."        Uniform Mom

For girls, you will find a wide variety of styles including tankini tops and bottoms, bikini tops and bottoms, swim mini's, skirted one pieces and basic tank suits.  Suits are featured in four different collections:
  • ShoreSide collection feature red, white and blue colors with a nod to a nautical theme.
  • Saltwater Taffy collection features bright colors, ruffles and fun prints.
  • Coconut Cove collection features floral appliques and sequin details in summer colors.
  • Smart Swim features the best value suits.
I bought my daughter Lands' End swimwear last summer. She swam almost everyday, sometimes twice a day at summer camp.  It held up all summer long through our beach vacation at the end of the summer. Here's the swim outfit she picked out (this turquoise blue is her favorite color) and I ordered for her for this summer:

The boys swim trunks are offered in solids colors, color block styles and prints.  They feature cargo pockets and a comfortable elastic waistband for pull on simplicity.  Boys swim Ts come in solid colors and color block styles, as well as some in fun graphic prints.

I also loved learning about the kids new water shoes and sandals.  Water shoes are quick drying and lightweight.  They are made for kids to wear playing in and out of the water.  They have styles with and without toe protection. They are great for summer camp.  These water shoes are easy to slip on and off because of the "rip grip and bungee adjustability".   They are also are perfect for beach play. The traction sole and cushioned foot bed would making walking over broken seashells a breeze.
