Family Camping Checklist

If you don’t have a family camping checklist, try this one as a base.

SLEEP + SHELTER

  • tent
  • air mattress

  • sleeping bags for everyone
  • pillowcases (stuff them with sweatshirts/towels to make pillows)

  • lantern
  • flashlights
  • headlamps for little kids (or for everyone, if you prefer. Little kids under 5 need headlamps because they don’t get the concept of pointing the beam where they want to go, also they tend to drop flashlights and lose them)
