Are you struggling to send your child off to camp? Can’t decide how many T-shirts and swimsuits to pack? Fear not New York City parents, professional packers are coming to your rescue.

For a mere $250 an hour, experts from agencies like Resourceful Consultants and Chaos Theory will offer their packing skills, and some will even spend 3 to 4 hours packing a camper, as reported by the New York Post.

How else would any parent manage to stay sane before sending their kids off to rough it in the mountains?

“I talked three people off the camp ledge,” Barbara Reich a professional packer, told the Post. “For a lot of mothers, particularly when their child is going away for the first time, it’s very stressful. Clients will say, ‘I need to touch and feel the sheets for softness.’ ”

Very stressful indeed. Because when it comes to sleep away camp, running the risk of ruining your kid’s sleeping experience is never worth it.

The only question is how on earth will these spoiled children manage once it’s time to come home from camp?
