I’m sitting in the middle of snow storm, dreaming about much warmer weather. This is the time of year that I start planning our summer. Just the other day, we firmed up our plans to spend a week camping at our favourite place, MBC. We can’t wait to go!
We’ve been car camping ever since we were married, and having babies didn’t stop us. We’ve developed our packing list over the years, and it covers all of the essentials. One year we packed all of our camping equipment and three kids into a small four door car, and still managed to have enough room for everything. We’ve got this down to a science!
There are 3 main categories of things you’ll need: Clothing & Personal Items, Camping & Cooking Equipment, and Food.
Here’s our Packing List, free for you to print and use for your own car camping trip! I’ve even included a 7 day sample menu.
What do you consider to be the essentials for camping?
