TENT TIPS:

❍ Place a tarp under tent for added barrier against the rain

SLEEPING SOLUTIONS:

❍ Rectangular sleeping bags offer maximum comfort with room to move

❍ An air mattress lets you enjoy the outdoors without sacrificing comfort

❍ Leave bulkier personal pillows at home and pack camping ones instead

CREATING COMFORT IN CAMP:

❍ Bring a camp chair for relaxing (great around the campfire!)

❍ Take along a cooler so food stays cold through entire campout

❍ Beat the heat and sun—add some instant shade with a canopy

LIGHTING IDEAS:

❍ A propane-powered lantern provides plenty of light for your campsite

❍ Add a handy, solar-powered tent light, perfect when getting ready for bed

❍ If venturing from your tent at night, a headlamp guides you… hands-free!

CAMP/COOKING MUSTS:

❍ Opt for a propane stove that sets up easily and heats up quickly

❍ Don’t forget your packable, personal tableware set

“BE PREPARED” ESSENTIALS:

❍ A Multi-Tool is a must-have to help keep camp running smoothly

❍ Bring a first-aid kit that covers any basic camping mishap

❍ Consider an insect-repellent lantern for your campsite
