Camping is such a fun thing to do with the family, but it’s even more fun with the help of this free printable camping checklist. Have you ever set out on a trip just to realize that you forgot something? Let me spin you a short tail.
A few years back I was a Girl Scout leader for my daughters’ troop. We were just headed to the local campground for an overnight camping trip. It was in town, so it would go off without a hitch, right?! Wrong.
My daughters and I were responsible for the meals. I had placed the food ingredients on the counter and asked the girls to pack it into the cooler. Instead of double checking their work, I trusted them and loaded the cooler. Guess what happened? Yep, you guessed it. They didn’t pack the cooler. We were 15 miles from home, and I couldn’t drive that far and leave the troop alone. Instead I had to call a friend, then head to the local Walgreens and TRIPLE for some quick breakfast options.
It was a lesson well learnt, and to this day we like to tease each other about it. We are making a great camping packing list, so you won’t have to have that problem. The only way you would is if you actually failed to put in the car, and we aren’t gonna pack your car for ya!
Enjoy this free printable camping checklist, and we hope your next outdoor adventure goes off without a hitch!
