How can I think about camp right now?! It’s freezing out!
After being stuck inside on a snow day with your kids bouncing of the walls, it’s a great reminder of all that’s to come this summer. While it may seem early to be thinking about camp, this is actually the perfect time! Registration for summer camp starts as early as January. At Denny’s, we like to get the ball rolling early to make sure you are as prepared as you can be!

Preparing for Your Camp Appointment
By now hopefully you’re ready for the ultimate camp shopping experience at Denny’s. Here are a few tips to prepare for your camp appointment.
- Book Early
Book your camp appointment by the end of January to receive our best camp package. The best time to schedule appointments is between March 1st and April 30th.
You can book your appointment online or by stopping by one of our locations. To book your spot, we ask for a $50 deposit that will be used towards your purchase the day of your camp appointment.
For your convenience, you can leave your deposit online.
Go to www.shopdennys.com/campdeposit. Choose the location that you would like to do your camp shopping at. A manager from the store will call you within 24-48 hours to book your appointment. Or if you prefer, you can always stop by one of our stores to book your appointment.
- Take Inventory
We will provide you with our suggested packing list for camp. Let it serve as a guide for what you will need to purchase. Before coming into the store for your camp appointment, we suggest taking inventory of what items you may already have at home for your child. Keep in mind that there are certain things that you have at home that you will need to buy additionally to send to camp. (For example, bedding, towels, etc.)
- Find Out About Your Camp’s Specifications
Most camps will provide you with their packing list. Often times they are very much consistent with our suggested packing list. Some camps, however, have very specific items that they require or prohibit. For example, some camps require a certain number of red shorts. Additionally, other camps have restrictions on what size trunks your child’s belongings may be sent in. Our camp specialists are familiar with many of these specifications, but we recommend finding out what your camp requires or prohibits prior to coming in for your camp appointment.
If you’re ready for your child to have the best summer ever, start by doing your camp shopping at Denny’s!

Shop These Top Children’s Trends for the Holidays
It’s that time of year — the holidays are here. Whether you need eight days of gifts to celebrate Hanukkah or a pile of presents to stuff in Santa’s sack, Denny’s has all sorts of ideas to make you a hero for the holidays. Before you make a list (and check it twice), consider our top children’s trends for every age from infant boys and girls to young men and juniors.
The “Hollywood” Harem
Move over, skinny jeans — bagginess is back for the winter. Harem pants and shorts graduated from at-home loungewear to the everyday attire of Hollywood’s coolest celebs. Stock your baby boy’s closet to ready him for cold weather charisma.
A baggy silhouette at the hip and thigh complements a tapered calf to pull off an equally effortless and dramatic children’s trend to match just about anything in his wardrobe. Boost the trendiness with camo print — including camo shorts in the warmer weather — and complete the outfit with a casual tee (preferably with a trendy saying) and soft denim jacket.
The Cold Shoulder Tee
Give regular sleeves the cold shoulder. Fun fashion for the winter starts with the cold shoulder tee. Pair the fashion forward top with soft, stretchy and comfortable leggings, perfect for everyday wear. Once again, camo print (or just about any type of print) completes the signature style of this children’s trend. Also popular for girls, the romper and dresses with metallic accents or print.
The Ruffle Top
Begin with the ruffle top, which combines bold style with a softened winter look. Designed with ruffled short sleeves and flattering boxy construction, this children’s trend works magic when half tucked into skinny jeans and paired with booties. Pull off the same show-stopping style with printed leggings featuring unicorns, rainbows, stars and other bright and beautiful graphics.
The Layered Look
Winter style for junior girls is all about layering and looking bold. Layer different shades of the same color, drape a cute jacket over the shoulder or rock a bomber over a cropped sweater. Balance is the key to this top children’s trend. Even out multiple layers on top with a slimmer silhouette on the bottom. Your go-to items: trendy and cool printed leggings and distressed skinny jeans.
All sorts of designs can help your daughter layer with allure including sequins, bold floral print, stripes, all-over prints and even tropical patterns for “cruise” season. Let’s not forget the two must-have items for the young girl and junior wardrobe: rompers and bell sleeve dresses.
Game Ready Apparel
For the boys, sporty comfort is the name of the game. Drape him from head to toe in the big name brands from the soft and lightweight Adidas Tiro 17 soccer pants to the warm and comfortable Yankees F/Z hoody.
Let him battle the cold with the highly breathable and warm Spyder Dolomite Synthetic jacket. Beneath the jacket, he can sport the Under Armour long sleeve waffle textured tech top or an official NBA jersey.
Accessories: Stocking Stuffers and More
Mermaids made a big splash in the girls’ accessories category. Mermaid-style reversible bracelets, wrist cuffs and pillows — especially with sequins — help young girls rock a little bling for the holidays.
Stuff stockings with the trendiest games and toys from Scribblish and the Rubik’s cube stress ball (for the brainiac) to desktop basketball (for the sports lover) to the retro-style Pac Man handheld arcade game (for the video game lover).
For the kid who loves sleepovers and lounging around the house, nothing beats the cool and cozy sleeper sack. And for the teen girl who fancies jewelry, set her heart on fire with a necklace or bracelet featuring words or monograms.
