✔ Choisir une tente

Look for a tent that will comfortably fit your group and your gear. It’s best to get one tent size larger than you think you need so that you have extra room to relax and move around. Don’t forget to include a mallet for your tent pegs and look for a mallet with a claw to pull out your pegs when it’s time to pack up and journey home.

✔ Faites votre lit

Choose a sleeping bag that is temperature-appropriate for the season you are camping in. Pair it with a sleeping pad, air mattress, or a cot to provide insulation from the ground. 

✔ Apportez un allume-feu

Apportez un allume-feu avec vous pour vous simplifier la vie. À moins d’être le spécialiste des feux de camp, il est préférable d’avoir un coup de pouce.

✔ Installez votre cuisine

Make sure you have everything you need to stay well fed. A cook set is a great first step, along with a camp stove and necessary fuel. Food safety is also important, so bring your perishable food coolers with lots of ice packs Don’t forget to also pack unbreakable dishes, cutlery and everything you’ll need to wash them at the end of meals. Be sure to also pack plenty of drinking water.

✔ Éclairez-vous

Moonlight and campfires are fun but can be unpredictable at times. Be sure to pack lanterns, flashlights, and headlamps on hand, so you can still be functional and safe after the sun goes down.

✔ Préparez-vous pour l’aventure

You’ll probably want to explore the area beyond your campsite, so bring a sturdy backpack and some comfy hiking shoes for day trips and hiking excursions.

✔ Mettez-vous à l’aise

While they may seem unnecessary when roughing it, folding chairs will give you an integral level of comfort, whether you’re sitting around telling campfire stories or eating a meal.

✔ Faites preuve de prudence et de bon jugement

Pack some clothespins and a laundry line: You never now when you’ll need to hang wet bathing suits from a dip in the lake or gear from an unexpected downpour. Also pack a well-stocked first-aid kit, insect repellent and lots of sunscreen.
