What To Pack When Camping For A Week
Last night my daughter and I packed our cloths for our five day camping trip coming up next week. I washed everything is unscented soap and focused on packing old cloths. Adrienne who is five loves this activity. I like packing cloth several days before our trip so I have time to wash anything that needs to be washed and because I know the days leading up to such a big trip will be busy with cooking/freezing food, shopping, planning and pulling it all together.
Here are a few links to help you get started knowing what to pack for a week long trip:

Check out my April posts for other ideas.
Here are few note to consider:
Cloths: I like clean cloths so a long trip means packing more, washing a few things or I check to see if they have a laundry facility. BRING CHANGE if they do. Wash all your cloths in scent free detergent so your not attracting mosquito's.
ADULT 5 DAY TRIP CLOTHS:
3 Long Sleeve Shirts
3 Short Sleeve Shirts
3 Tank Tops (good for layering cool days/nights)
1 or 2 Sleeping Ware (can double as day cloths, up to you)
3 Long Pants Assorted Soft / Jeans (unless it's VERY hot weather then 2)
3 Shorts (unless it's very cool weather then 2)
1 Skirt or Dress Optional
1 Long Sleeve Fleece Hooded Jacket
1 Down Vest
1 Light Rain/Wind Jacket (just in case)
1 Water Sandals
1 Hiking/Walking Shoes
1 Flip Flops For Shower Etc...
1 Pair Of Fleece Boots Optional
5 Pair Of Under Ware
4 Pair Of Socks
1 Sun Hat
FOR CHILDREN ADD EXTRA SOCKS/UNDER WARE AND A PAIR OF GLOVES FOR LITTLE ONES. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH SHOES ESP. IF YOUR NEXT TO WATER. CROCS WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOUR CHILD A WAY TO HAVE DRY FEET.
