When you are trying to figure out what type of vacation you and your family should go on why not consider camping? This is a great way to spend time together as a family and to escape from your everyday lives without having to spend a ton of money to do it. In order to have fun and be safe you need to bring all of the necessary supplies.
The first thing you need to put together is the first aid kit. Inside of this kit you need to have bandages of every size, alcohol, suntan lotion, bug spray, and anything that is going to help with snake bites or any bites from any type of animal. Make sure that everyone has their own small first aid kit in their backpacks.
The next thing that you need to remember to bring – but that is hard to forget is the tent. You can have one for each person if you want privacy or purchase a large family tent that has dividers inside of it. You also need to bring along a sleeping bag for each person to use that will keep them warm during the night.
Cooking supplies are always a good thing to have on hand when you are going to be roughing it. You will rely on these to make the foods that you love and that are easy to cook each day. Try to get the right ones that will also be easy for you to clean after each use.
Lastly you need to bring along all of the food and water that you will be consuming during the time that you are gone. I like to bring a cooler full of foods to cook. It is also great to bring some non perishable camping food. That way you can have easy snacks to eat when you are on a hike.
