By / 12th August, 2012 / Camping / No Comments

This list is for those hardy campers, with their own tents, who want the full experience … cooking at your tent … none of that cosy camping stuff 🙂  But .. remember if you are staying with us at Purecamping, we can make life easier … we have your campers kitchen, we have pots, pans, delph and cutlery and the option of a cosy bed under canvas 🙂

Essential Clothes:

  • Wellies and Crocks
  • Wetgear
  • Fleeces
  • Beanies or woolie hats if camping outside of July and August
  • Thermals … as above
  • Fleecy campfire blanket (or tent skirt .. more on these later)

Essential other bits

  • Head torches
  • Plate, bowl, cup, cutlery (sporks are good)
  • Washing up basin
  • 2 Pots .. 1 medium .. 1 small
  • Sharp knife
  • Camping stove. See here for some ideas.
  • Matches
  • First aid kit
  • Eco shampoo and body wash
  • Hairbrush … maybe …..
  • Towel
  • Kitchen Roll
