Camping Check List

Here is a list of the basic items you may need on our family campouts. If you are one of our experienced campers, please feel free to add to the list.

___    Tent and tarp, sleeping bags, pillows

___    Air mattress with pump or cot. Optional but helpful.

___    Clothes – pants, shorts, shirts, socks, undergarments, bathing suite …  bring spares.
Don’t forget something to sleep in, this is a family outing…

___    Shoes – closed toe shoes are required and water shoes. You may also want to bring something to easily slip on for those late night runs to the bathroom. Crocs work nicely. Spare shoes in case they get wet.

___    Emergency poncho – avail at wal-mart/cvs for $1-$2

___    Flashlight – I would suggest lights with head strap. Extra batteries.

___    Class A and Class B uniform.

___    Snacks and Drinks in a small cooler with ice.  We will provide food/ drinks/ plates/ cups/ utensils, but you may want to bring some snacks and drinks for your family.  Be careful with packaged drinks to avoid straw wrappers and half full containers littering the camp.

___    Toiletries – Tooth brush, toothpaste, soap, towel, brush etc. Some camps have showers, others don’t – don’t forget the deodorant.

___    Jacket, Blanket – It is South Florida, but it can get a little chilly at night sometimes.

___    Medications, BUG SPRAY, SUN BLOCK, Advil/Tylenol, sunburn gel- if you forgot the sunblock.

___     Sunglasses and/or hat

___    Camera – Your gonna need facebook material.

___    Folding chairs

___    Lots of energy and a BIG Smile

A couple of optional items that make the experience a little nicer:

Shade tent, several people in the pack have them, no need to go out and buy one.

Battery pack – keeps the cell phones charged.

Please do not bring video games and other electronic devices, this is an outdoor activity. Most of you have cell phones with games on them. Its nice to have the phone with you for camera and phone use but please no electronic games during camp.
