Essentials to Carry When Camping with Children

Once we have been sufficiently informed and we are convinced by the idea of spending a few days living in the middle of nature in a campsite, all that is left to do is to prepare the rucksack, always thinking that nothing is missing that will hinder the natural course of the holidays.

It is not the same to prepare the backpack to camp with a tent or to go to a bungalow. In the first case, you will have to get more material, but once the investment is made, you can use it for many adventures of this type.

Camping for the First Time with Children

If this is the first time you’ve camped with children and you’re worried about not knowing what to bring to a campsite, in this article you’ll have a list of essential things that will give you an idea of how prepared you are.

  • Fully equipped kitchen.
  • Hot water 24 hours a day.
  • Showers.
  • Sofas.
  • Perfect porch to relax and contemplate the nocturnal landscape, among other things, though for your comfort.

But if you are wondering what to take to a campsite with a bungalow, you should take into account things like clothes, bring items for your health, such as medicine, or for your own safety, such as flashlights or a razor.

Lists of things for the campsite

It’s always good to open up to camping tips so that once you’re at your destination, you don’t get caught up in anything that might get in the way of your holidays. We’ll start with something basic like clothes.

What to wear to a campsite

Many times we find ourselves in the destination with everything more than prepared, but it may be that at some point we would have wished some kind of extra clothing, or something warmer. So that you don’t get too complicated, we’ve prepared a list of tips on which clothes will be useful to you:

– They should be comfortable. This point is essential since in a campsite we will be generally on the move or relaxing, so it is crucial to wear clothes with which you feel comfortable and at ease.

– Depending on the weather. If the destination is camping or renting one of the bungalows, the clothes should be cool for the day, but at nightfall, it’s always good to have something warmer. Cold weather can and should be avoided.

– It should be sturdy clothing. Apart from resistant, your daily clothes in the campsite should not have much sentimental value nor that it is an expensive garment since it could crack when rubbed with some branch or in some game of those who are prepared in the campsite.

You can not forget these garments:

  • Pants, both long and short.
  • Socks and underwear.
  • Slippers.
  • T-shirts of short and long sleeves.
  • Sweatshirts.
  • Swimwear.

What to Wear for Personal Hygiene

There are things to bring to a campsite that can be optional, but in terms of cleanliness must be very sure that we do not miss anything, or that the campsite has a supermarket to buy what we have forgotten.

We have prepared a list of things to include in your luggage so that you can wash and clean with all the guarantees in a campsite:

  • Brush and toothpaste.
  • Shampoo.
  • Soap.
  • A mirror, a comb, and a hairdryer.
  • Shaving material.
  • Several towels.
  • Toilet paper rolls.

Cooking material

It’s not the same to think of taking a campsite with a bungalow to cook as it is to camp, as the bungalows have everything you need for meals.

But if we are going to spend a few days in a tent you have to get some necessary objects if you want to be independent in the subject of food:

  • A kitchen that works with gas.
  • Glasses.
  • Plates.
  • Cutlery.
  • Frying pan.
  • Pot.
  • Some opener.
  • Lighter.
  • Bags to throw the garbage.

Things to carry essentials for camping with children

Going camping accompanied by your children is an experience that will undoubtedly unite you more like a family, but it is not the same to prepare a backpack to go camping when only adults go to the trip when added to the young adventure children.

In this case, you need a number of elements that in other circumstances some of them might be overlooked, so we recommend that you follow this series of tips for camping accompanied by minors that we will detail below.

The most important advice we can give you is to make sure you organize the trip and the backpack with enough time to be able to review it later. Since once in the destination, you may not be able to get something that is mainly a necessity for you.

You also have to take into account the campsite chosen, as some are unattractive to go with children due to their lack of electricity, bathrooms, some point where to go if an emergency occurs, etc.. But it must be borne in mind that if we look for a cheap campsite, as is the case with Camping Tula, it does not mean that it is of worse quality; quite the opposite, since the economical price makes it a destination for families and therefore care is taken that nothing is missing for the youngest.

Don’t forget that children can’t stand the cold as much as adults, so it’s advisable to put warm clothes in the backpack for them, as some nights can cool quite a bit, and you can avoid the cold by taking sweatshirts or jackets for everyone. It is also a good idea to look for a campsite in the south of Spain, for the same reason.
