Cleaning products

You need to keep some supplies for cleaning purposes too. Don’t  forget your tooth brush and paste. You can keep napkins, towels, tissue rolls, wipes, a cleaning brush and a bin for putting away the garbage and waste. Wherever you are camping, make sure that while you stay there and when you pack up. Don’t leave any waste behind. Clean the place. Keep the environment eco friendly.

Small plant pots or seeds

Though it may sound out of the box but how wonderful it would be if we plant two plants per person each time we go out for camping. Not only will it keep your camping site eco friendly. It will also help to give shade and fruits to your grand children.

Hiking backpacks

Your hiking backpacks should have few snacks, water bottle, first aid essentials, camera and a stick. A stick or can with torch help a lot in assessing the dampened areas, any swamps etc.

Smart gadgets and power banks

They include your smart phones, smart watches, portable Wi-Fi, and a navigation  system. All these should be used for minimum time. But you cannot hold them back completely as you have to stay connected to the outer world.

So don’t forget to take your fully charged power banks with you. You may take a portable music system with you for dreading the animals away. Or maybe inviting them to your bonfire dance party. Who knows!

Mosquito repellent, insect-killing sprays and sunblock

You have to be very vigilant in applying a good mosquito repellent. As a good repellent helps in moving away some harmful insects besides the mosquito. You can spray some insect killer spray for better safety.

You should use good sun screen lotions in the morning. As though some of sunlight exposure is good for providing the vitamin D ,but  prolonged skin exposure to ultraviolet light can result in some damage or serious harm. This can also leave your skin sun tan. So better to apply sun block than the whitening lotions for couple of months. Use sun glasses too.


You can enjoy your camping trip if you prepare yourself according to the above check list. Camping is fun, adventure and a great learning experience. Try to stay away from gadgets and near to nature on your camping tour. Don’t forget to keep your surroundings clean and plant two plants each.
