Camping Activities Checklist
Wondering what to bring on your next camping adventure?
The difference between a fun weekend and kicking oneself for forgetting useful items is knowing what to bring in the first place. Below is a useful checklist to help you pack for your trip. Just remember not to leave everything until the last minute!
- All your camping requirements, such as tent, matress, sleeping bag, camp chair, cooking utensils, cutlery, plates, etc
- Warm clothing – it can get cold there at night, quite a bit colder than Perth temperatures
- All your food for the weekend
(We supply the kayaks, paddles and life jackets)
- Clothes/bathers/wetsuits that can get wet
- Closed in footwear that can get wet – THESE ARE A MUST, we may have to get out of the kayaks from time to time during our paddle and we don’t want any cut feet
- Sunscreen and hats
- Plenty of drinking water
- Dry bags if you have them for storing food etc
- Headlamp or torch. If you have a torch we suggest putting it on a lanyard so you don’t have to always hold on to it. Headlamps tend to be easier if you have one
- Plenty of spare batteries – It’s good to carry a spare light source or spare batteries while in the cave
- Long pants and long shirt – try to wear clothes that are hard wearing as rocks can be unforgiving to clothing. If you have a pair of overalls these are even better
- Sturdy footwear such as hiking boots
- Sturdy footwear with good grip such as hiking boots
- Comfortable clothing
- Sunscreen and hat
- Plenty of water
- Camera with spare batteries or charger. There will be power at the ablution block
- USB memory stick. Only if you want to share photos with other adventurers
- Pack of cards, game of chess or favourite stories to tell around the campfire
