When you go camping, you need to take extra precautions to pack everything you need including extra food and water. Even if you think you are packing stuff that you won’t need, you never know when something unexpected will occur, and you’ll be glad for that preparation. Also, it is imperative to plan your camping trip, deciding where to go, and how many days you are going to camp.
What to Bring When Camping
First Aid Kit
Whether you are camping by yourself or with your family and friends, a first-aid kit is a must. You never know when an accident can occur, and being prepared with the necessary medical items could make a big difference.
Choose Your Destination
Colorado offers many different places for camping, some are more accessible than others, and depending on the location, you need to choose proper clothing and supplies. Also, once you determine the destination, if you’re not familiar with the area, then do some research about it and what you need to pack for a safe adventure.
Food & Water
Depending on your camping destination, you won’t find a mini-market near your location; for that reason, you need to plan. Decide how much food you need to take for camping, choosing the type of snacks and meals that will keep everyone satisfied, avoiding feeling hungry while enjoying the outdoors.
Clothing & Supplies
Make sure to use clothing that is light and waterproof. Also, be prepared for whatever the weather might bring and pack some extra clothes, in case you need to change more than once. Make sure to also pack essential supplies like a lighter, flashlight, sunglasses, sunscreen, knife, and a GPS.
