Family Camping Checklist The Portable Baby 0 Back to FAQs Family Camping Checklist Posted by Laura Hamilton on December 26, 2014 15 Here’s my family camping checklist for camping with small children. This is a car camping list, not a backpacking list, which you probably would have figured out by the time you got to “carpet remnant for tent entrance”. Still, I can fit everything in a smallish VW station wagon with two giant carseats in back, so it’s really not all that much stuff, either. You certainly don’t need an SUV. If you don’t have a family camping checklist, try this one as a base. I find that having a list to refer to takes a lot of the stress out of it...I don't have to worry if I remembered everything...I just look at my list and then check things off as I load them into the car. As you find yourself making additions and subtractions, write them down to make the list your own! I'd love to hear your suggestions in the comments. SLEEP + SHELTER tent air mattress sheets for air mattress manual or battery-powered pump sleeping bags for everyone pillowcases (stuff them with sweatshirts/towels to make pillows) carpet remnant for tent entrance 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) EAT tablecloth camp table (don’t need if there are picnic tables) camp chairs firewood kindling newspaper camp stove propane bottles tea strainer/tea coffee press/coffee dishwashing bucket Dr. Bronner’s soap (not peppermint – stings eyes when used as face wash) sponge scrub brush water bottles, one for each person. sharp knife cutting board scissors corkscrew can opener bottle opener matches and lighter ice chest w/ice (if you are bringing perishable food) trash bag large water cooler saucepan frying pan dutch oven plates bowls forks spoons knives mugs aluminum foil roll of paper towels vegetable peeler PERSONAL CARE toothbrushes toothpaste nail clipper nail file washcloths (one per person) towels (one per person) shampoo (or can use Dr. Bronner’s soap) conditioner (for long hair) moisturizer (body and face) sunscreen (body and face) lip balm sun hats for everyone sunglasses diapers (for kids who still need them, or for bedwetters. You do NOT want to experience a peed-in sleeping bag. Better safe than sorry) wet wipes deodorant hairbrush/comb ibuprofen first aid kit any necessary medications or vitamins portable potty for little kids toilet paper tweezers tampons/pads/menstrual cup, etc. CLOTHING underwear, one pair per person per day socks, one pair per person per day (ideally Smartwool, as they do not get stinky or feel damp) jeans sweatpants (can be used as pajamas) sweatshirt (ditto) black or dark-colored wool sweater shorts T-shirts fleece vest fleece hat warm coat hiking/walking shoes Crocs or flip-flops or Teva's (for going in the water, beach, pool, wearing in campsite showers, slipping on to go pee in the middle of the night, etc.) bathing suit swim/sun shirt swim goggles Swim Cushions for beginning swimmers MISCELLANEOUS baby carrier screwdriver pliers camera camera charger journal maps and guidebooks pens Swiss Army or utility knife clothesline (for hanging towels, bathing suits, washcloths, rinsed out clothing) prefold cloth diapers (used for drying dishes, cleaning up random spills and wet spots, padding, endlessly useful to have 5-10 of these along) guitar and pick games, books and toys for kids. My favorite is a big bucket of Legos. iPod for car stereo cell phone cell phone car charger laptop laptop power supply batteries duct tape daypacks for carrying lunches, water, camera, maps, etc. FOOD This depends on the facilities available, personal taste, etc. I don’t really like to cook a lot when I’m camping. Some people are really into it, I am not, unless I am camping with a group to share the labor. When camping with kids, if I spend time and effort cooking over a campstove and they don’t eat it, it’s a GIANT PAIN. With my camping pantry staples below, they can just grab what they want and not waste food or create a pile of dishes that need to be washed. After all, the whole point is to have fun and relax, not chore like I do at home. apples avocados hard-boiled eggs cheese salami chocolate oranges hot dogs peanut butter jelly bread nuts crackers Clif bars marshmallows (for toasting over the campfire) Nutella graham crackers fruit leather dried fruit (dried cranberries, raisins, etc.) trail mix carrots and/or celery salt sugar hot chocolate packets canned baked beans canned corn (mix beans and corn together in a pot and heat. delish!) TetraPaks of milk – dairy, almond, soy, rice, hemp, etc. What did I forget? Let me know in the comments, please!
