7 Essentials to
1. Tent and
Bedding - At the end of the day, everyone would
find that comfortable sleep is what would make up for all the energy they have spent all day out on the great
outdoors. This is why your tent and bedding are utilities that should be on the top of your camping checklist.
Because being out might actually have you lie on rough and muddy ground for the night, a tent and your bedding will
provide a great venue where you could rest. Not only at night, but if you find that you need shade during the day,
you will find the use of a tent quite essential. It can also serve to protect you from the wildlife that normally
roam the outdoors at night, and even keep out critters such as mosquitoes and snakes that can slip into your
2. Food and Water - You will need sustenance to keep up with the trekking during camping
trips, which makes food and water another essential item in your camping checklist. While there are some
campers who can go and depend on the available resources for food that nature can provide - like fish,
fruits, and vegetation, those who are not skilled in hunting or procuring such will find that bringing along
food will make things a lot easier. Water might be everywhere, but finding a potable water source can be
very, very difficult, so ensure that the ration of your water supply will be monitored to make it last for
the duration of your camping trip.
3. Cooking Essentials - The need for having the necessary apparatus to cook your meals can
help greatly for camping trips, so make sure you have them on your camping checklist. One such thing would be
a stove, which will work to cook your meals or even warm them up when cold. A warm meal for breakfast is sure
to start the day well, and hot meals at night will make rest more delightful. You should also include the
necessary cooking vessels, which you can eat directly from to save room. Utensils, on the other hand, must be
provided, to make eating easier for everyone.
4. First Aid Kit - No one can tell what might happen when you go out on camping trips,
which makes a first aid kit a necessity when it comes to jotting down a camping checklist. If one encounters
an accident and would need medical assistance, you can actually help them recover or stay alive with the use
of different paraphernalia that a first aid kit would have. Because simple things can mean the difference
between life and death in the great outdoors, having a first aid kit can ensure that you will be able to save
lives when something tragic and unexpected happens.
5. Hygiene Products - Even if you are out to experience the natural beauty of the planet, it
doesn't mean that you should end up ignoring your hygiene. You would need to wash your face and brush your
teeth at the very least, and you would need certain disinfectants like alcohol to rub on bruises and cuts
that you might accumulate. Toilet paper will ensure that you would have something to wipe with if need be,
and inclusion of garbage bags will help you gather all your trash in one place, making sure you do not take
the environment for granted.
6. Light -Nights on the great outdoors is different from nights in urban
neighborhoods, so it is best that you have a handy light source available. This will make navigation through
trails possible when light and visibility is scarce, such as when fog sets in. You will also need it when you
get up in the middle of the night to attend to certain things, like to use the toilet or visit another
Tools - You need to have a tent peg and mallet as
part of your camping checklist. It will make for efficient putting up and dismantling of tents. A compass and
camping ground map will help you navigate the area as well, and things such as lighters and shovels will be
essential for putting up fires and digging holes when needed.
Once you have been
camping, you will soon learn what to take and what not to take. Camping is a fun and relaxing activity to do
with family and friends, but making sure you have all the vital camping equipment will make it all the more
