Fun Things to Bring Camping
People get on the camping wagon because they want to get away from the stress caused by city living, work, school, relationships, etc. Some just want to go camping because they want to.
Camping can have a favorable effect not just on health but on overall living. Being more connected to nature makes everything better.
It can take the stress away, change your mood for the good, makes you experience fresh air, builds good social relationship, gets you fit, and helps you develop new skills you never knew you had!
Camping can be fun too. While out in the wilderness with your family or friends, you can do fun games and activities to entertain and engage everybody.
If someone hears camping, it most usually means backpacking and tents and sleepovers. And they most usually are!
Camping almost always means that you’ll have to limit your belongings to bring to camp. But with a group of 3 or more, you most certainly can bring extra more things. And you’ll have your vehicle to store everything too!
Here are some cool and fun things you can bring
on top of your usual essentials to bring on your next camping trip!
1. Coffee Maker
Not the electric one but the propane-powered one.
If coffee is what starts your mornings to invigorate you throughout the day, then bring a coffee maker with you. Choose a propane-powered one so it’s easier to operate.
2. Hand-operated Blender
Cool and delicious refreshments are great in the afternoon especially if the weather is hot. So, instead of bringing unhealthy bottled juices, just make your own refreshments using fruits or even some vegetables with a hand-crank blender.
3. Portable Kitchen
If you love to cook and your companions are always hungry for it, then why not bring a kitchen with you so you can prepare full meals for them?
Portable kitchens come in different styles, sizes, and portability. Nonetheless, all of them are designed for efficient food preparation.
4. Handy Washing Machine
You don’t always have to wear your clothes over extended periods.
With this portable washing machine, you can always wash light clothing with its tiny scrubs inside. Perfect if you don’t want to bring wet and dirty clothes with you. Simply hang after washing.
5. Playing Cards
Card games are very useful if you all have just finished dinner and just chilling before going to sleep. They’re a great way to spend the time having fun too!
6. Mountain Bikes
Because why not?
What another way to spend camping than exploring the surroundings? If you prefer riding than walking, mountain bikes are the way to go.
They’re built for extreme terrains so you’re sure to be safe while enjoying the beautiful scenic views. It works as a good workout as well.
7. Smart Fire Starter
We recommend getting an old-school sun-powered
fire starter. You feel what it’s like living in the wilderness. Starting a fire
with only the sun is an accomplishment itself!
8. Cocoon Hammock
Literal hanging out.
Have your very own abode with a cocoon hammock. Choose a netted one for protection against bugs and mosquitos. And the wind can sway you to sleep too!
9. Pocket Shower
Don’t have a lake or river to wash nearby? Why not bring your own shower?
A portable shower won’t let you shower for long, but at least you can.
10. Hanging Cupboard
Get your portable kitchen a partner. If you camp often and you have a big group to feed, it’s always best to have an extra hand in the kitchen. A hanging cupboard can also be used as an extra storage compartment, so, winner!
11. Portable Sink
Not a fan of brushing your teeth with a water bottle? Get yourself a portable sink! And not just that. It also lets you wash your hands, face, and even shave your growing beard.
12. Fire Crystals
These fun inventions will have everyone’s eyes! Put it in a fire and make storytelling alive. Kids and adults alike will love watching the fire more than they ever have.
13. Swimming Ensembles
Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit or shorts. You never know, there might be a beach nearby or a lake. There’s nothing like taking a dip in the water especially in summer!
14. Water Trampoline
Yes. Take your camping to the next level on the waters!
