Your Camping To Do Checklist

Jan 12, 2008
It's your turn to organize your school camping this year; the previous one was successful as expected. There were a few glitches but very manageable and not even one noticed the slightest plight. You decide to prepare for that event and here you go with your camping to-do checklist!

Almost always, planning is the most crucial step to any successful activity. Effective execution comes from careful planning and the results can be very rewarding. Learn from your previous camping experiences and ask from friends who have organized camping and other outdoor activities. Derive a set of to-dos from gathered information.

Choose what time of the year to hold your activity. Ask from your campers their preferred date and while all of them have different options, the majority always win. One important thing to help them decide too is to provide them information for the anticipated weather. Your school however, may already have decided on this, so, there's not much of a choice!

Check the weather as accurately as you can. This will give you useful information to come up with contingency plans and what necessary things to bring. Don't fret, there is always that perfect time of the year to go camping!

Choose the perfect location for your camping site. There are areas advised for camping venues and sites. Security is of utmost importance; security and accessibility to the nearest help are important considerations. Camping vicinities will require permits and they have policies that should be strictly adhered to. All these made for the safety of each camper and avoid any untoward events.

Camping activities should be made fun for everyone as determined on the objective of the activity. While other camping activities are made for the sole idea of adventure and fun, others will serve for the purpose of reflection and relationship building. Activities can also be sorted out for kids, teens and adults if you have campers of different ages. Leaders could also be appointed to facilitate your camping activities; effectivity also relies on task delegation.

Make a camping gear checklist: one should be for the team or group of people who will help you organize the activity and the second one could be a personal checklist. This will make everyone excited about their assignments and will also remind them of the what-to-bring list. Not all gears and materials are handled by the organizers; so, while they look forward to the fun and adventure, they also get the feel of organizing their essentials for that awaited event.

Lastly, talk with your assistants every now and then. Keep yourselves up to date with the development of plans. This will help you foresee any challenges thus coming up with strategies for any anticipated circumstance.

No one is perfect but rest assured that carefully planned camping activities have the slightest chance to go wrong. Putting too much confidence aside, you certainly can make it happen! You can make everyone's camping experience for the year a truly memorable experience. Then, who says it was so difficult to do it eh? Nah, it will be just as easy as your ABC!
