Here is what you need:

First aid kit

A physically active camping trip is bound to leave you with bruises, burns or bumps, which makes first aid kit an essential camping gear. If you’re going for excursions, carry the first aid kit too.

Match box

A match box is crucial in lighting the fire you need to keep warm if it’s cold and to prepare some of your food.


When choosing a tent, always select one that’s bigger and can accommodate more people than the ones actually going camping in order to remain with extra room to keep luggage. Ensure that you have the necessary tent accessories including tent porch, tent footprint tent pegs and a mallet; this can prove useful when hammering tent pegs to the ground.

Pocket knife

A Pocket knife or Swiss Army Knife is an important camping gear, plus it doesn’t take any space in your luggage, or does it? Trust me, you will need the saw, knife, corkscrew and knife in your camping. All these are provided by the compact pocket knife.

Alternative weather wear,just in case
