November 19th is a day that every camper knows! It’s a National Camp Day when people take time to escape from their routine and admire nature. So whether you are a nature lover or someone who wants to take a break, then National Camp Day 2021 is around the corner. But wait, just grabbing the hot dogs and marshmallows won’t prepare you for camping.
You need to pack all the weekend camping essentials that will make your camping experience the best!
If you have no idea what things you need to pack for National Camp Day 2021, then here is a quick list of camping must-haves:
You can easily find all the camping must-haves here at Skuxs or at your local outdoor retailer.
The first thing to pack when going camping outdoors is a camping tent. It is essential to set up your campsite. The purpose of camping tents is to protect you from weather, bugs, and other wildlife animals and your privacy as there are other campers.
Our Recommendation - Marmot Fortress 2-Person Tent
Designed with durable material and sturdy construction, the Marmot Fortress Two-Person Tent is an excellent pick for camping. The full fabric canopy, seamed construction, vertical walls, and strategic clip placement makes it perfect for stormy weather.
Going camping just in a tent is not a good idea. You don’t want the cold to catch you from the ground or insects biting you. Sleeping bags are one of the camping must-haves that you should pack with yourself.
Our Recommendation - Adventure Medical Escape Bivvy Sleeping Bag
Stay warm without soaking your clothes wet due to condensation buildup with the Adventure Medical Escape Bivvy Sleeping Bag. Constructed with a waterproof seam and a drawstring hood, the Bivvy Sleeping Bag lets the moisture escape while protecting you from rain, snow, and wind.
While often overlooked by most campers, camping chairs are essential. It adds an extra touch of comfort so that you can enjoy the outdoors without any hassle.
One of the essential camping must-haves is flashlights and extra batteries. It will be helpful during the night exploration or in case of an emergency.
Our Recommendation - LED Lenser P5 Flashlight
LED Lenser P5 Flashlight is a high-performance, lightweight, and compact size flashlight with excellent value for money. It produces 90+ lumens of light while saving energy at the same time. It allows long-distance viewing and comes with AA batteries.
Outdoors can be pretty cruel if you are not well prepared. That’s why when going camping you must pack certain cooking utensils like:
Our Recommendation - Jetboil 5L Cook Pot & Lid
The large capacity, efficient boiling time, and durability the Jetboil 5L Cook Pot & Lid provides all while being lightweight. This pot is manufactured explicitly for outdoors so that you can prepare large meals, including rice dishes, pot roast, or pasta.
The fun of camping doubles when you prepare a meal under the open sky. Modern-day campers usually take a stove with themselves when camping, which makes camping more comfortable. Also, packing some fuel for emergencies is recommended.
Our Recommendation - Jetboil Genesis Basecamp Stove
The Jetboil Genesis Base Camp Stove can make your outdoor cooking fantasies come true with a dual burner cookstove! It has a beasty heating system that can boil or cook large meals or melt snow in just 3 minutes. It is compatible with the Jetboil 5L Cook Pot.
Most people think that camping must-haves are all about utensils, tents, or sleeping bags. However, in reality, it also means wearing the proper footwear, inner-wear, and outerwear, depending on the weather. There are several brands that manufacture camping-specific apparel. We love The North Face for base layers and outerwear.
The last but not the least thing to take with you on camping is a compact medical kit, aka a first aid kit. The outdoors are unpredictable, and that’s why you should be prepared for any unforeseen event.
Our Recommendation - Adventure Medical Ultralight Sleep Kit
Designed for multi-sport athletes, the adventure medical ultra sleep kit is an excellent first aid outdoors. It is lightweight, compact, and watertight with all the proper medications in it.
When is National Camp Day 2021?
National Camp Day 2021 will be observed on Friday, the 19th November. It is celebrated on the 19th of November every year.
What do I need to bring on a weekend camping trip?
A weekend camping essential list includes waterproof tents, warm and comfortable sleeping bags, a stove with cooking pots, flashlights, a medical kit, cooking utensils, apparel to keep you warm and dry, as well as something to carry all your belongings in. We recommend Thule backpacks to carry your clothes and smaller camping items around.
