Why you should plan out your camping trip

Planning your camping trip is essential for ensuring you have everything you need. You should also plan out your trip based on where you are going and what activities you plan on doing. For example, if you are going on a backpacking trip through some rough terrain, you’ll want to pack more sturdy gear and clothes. We’ve prepared a couple of tips for you and a complete camping shopping list to help you get your camping organized.

Step 1

Find the right spot for your camp

The right campsite is one that is safe, has drinking water and WC. A good campsite will be clean and spacious with plenty of room for tents. It should have a little walking space between each tent or group of campers to accommodate privacy as well as minimize the risk from other dangers.

Step 2

Essential items for your camping trip

Have a look at our camping shopping list template to get the idea of what you need to buy. You can easily get some items off the list or add your own, if needs be. Still, it’s difficult to imagine camping without some essentials like:
1) Tent - It's not worth it if your tent collapses on top of you in bad weather, so make sure to find one that suits your needs or just rent one from an outdoor store.
2) Sleeping bag - This will help keep warm at night when temperatures drop and can fit inside any backpack easily.
3) Personal First Aid Kit (or something similar)- There are always those unforeseen accidents while camping such as falls, scrapes, insect bites etc., so make sure everyone's prepared by bringing their own first aid kit or stocking up before they head out onto the trail.
4) Cooking gear- Campfire meals can get old after awhile but there's no need worry because having cooking equipment comes in handy for hot soup breakfasts too!

Step 3

Map out your hike

Planning your hike is essential for the gear you'll need. Check the weather conditions, terrain, air quality and elevation gain to decide if you need to pack more food or water.

Always prepare for any weather when camping. Bring warm clothes, rain gear and a windbreaker or raincoat. If you are spending time in cold climates, make sure to bring adequate warm clothing for the evening and morning hours. Dress in layers so that you can easily adjust your clothing to suit the changing temperature.

Camping is an outdoor activity that could potentially have a number of risks. You might be unaware of the dangers in nature and if you aren’t properly prepared, you might not know how to handle a situation. For example, if someone gets injured or is having an allergic reaction to something in the woods, they would need medical attention.

A first aid kit is essential for any camping trip because it can help you handle any medical emergencies that may arise. This kit should include bandages, medications and other items for any unexpected events. It’s also smart to take a CPR course and bring some knowledge about first-aid before heading off on your camping trip!

Camping is a fun, social activity that many people enjoy. One of the most important aspects of camping is the camaraderie and companionship you experience with your friends and family. Camping in groups can be difficult though, so here’s how to make things easier for you.

First off, you'll want to decide who will be in your group and how big it will be. There are generally three types of group sizes: small, medium or large. Small groups would be less than 10 people while large groups would have over 10 campers.

Next, you’ll need to figure out who's going to take care of the cooking while on the trip. You can either have one person do all of the cooking or break up into teams where each team cooks one meal during their time at camp. The other option is to use pre-packaged meals that only require stirring water and waiting a few minutes before eating them. Generally, these are called “just add water” meals but there are also other brands (such as Mountain House) that offer dehydrated food packs that only require adding hot water. The last option is to use a combination of both options; cook some food from scratch but also use pre-packaged meals for quick and easy cooking..

And finally, if there are children in your group it may be a good idea for each adult to take responsibility for them at different times during the day.

Stick to the plan

Now that you know more or less what to expect, it’s time you created your own camping shopping list. Feel free to use our template and add what you think should also be on the list, as well as take off anything that you wouldn’t otherwise buy.
