How To Survive Your Family Camping Trip: 10 Really Handy Products To Buy Now

If you’re planning a family camping trip this summer, you’ll need to ensure you’re prepared for every eventuality. Camping with kids can be a wonderful experience – especially if you’ve got all the essentials packed. We teamed up with Mountain Warehouse to bring you ten top products to invest in this summer, so you’re all set for adventure. Happy camping!

1. Buxton 6-Man Waterproof Tent

Let’s start with the basics. If you’re planning a family camping trip, you’re going to need a decent tent. The Buxton 6-man tent is a great option for big family camping trips, or for smaller families who prefer a bit more space.

The vis à vis layout consists of two bedrooms at either end with one large, spacious living area at the centre, perfect for quality time with the family. This waterproof tent comes with a sewn-in groundsheet and insect mesh doors and large vents above the window that allows breathability while keeping out the bugs.

2. Basecamp 200 Summer Sleeping Bag

It can be cold at night when camping, so it’s important to invest in proper camping kit, and this sleeping bag from Mountain Warehouse is a great choice.

The Basecamp 200 Sleeping Bag is lightweight and comes with a compact drawstring carry case. It’s ideal for rolling up and packing in the car, and with a comfort temperature of 15°C, it’s ideal for sleeping under the stars.

3. Low Folding Chair with Wooden Armrest

Do you need chairs for camping? Absolutely. Compact camping chairs are an essential in our book, so you can avoid sitting on the cold ground or wet grass in the mornings, and of course, have a comfy seat to watch the world go around before bed.

The Low Folding Chair with Wooden Armrest is a great addition to your garden or camping equipment. It’s made of a durable steel frame with a bright pattern and can easily be folded when not in use, so you can pack one for everybody in the boot.

4. Pop-Up Shower Toilet Tent

If you’re stuck without facilities when camping, then this pop-up shower toilet tent is a great investment.

You can conveniently pitch up your own camping shower, toilet or changing room with Mountain Warehouse’s Pop-Up Shower/Toilet Tent. It’s water-resistant with taped seams, has no floor and a foldable zip door. Its compact design is ideal, making it the perfect must-have companion for your trip.

5. Wind Up Lantern

Head torches and lanterns are going to come in handy for those middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet, and it’s best to invest in durable products that provide ample lighting.

We love this Wind Up Lantern, and with no batteries required it’s the perfect allrounder for keeping in the car, or at home for power cuts, breakdowns and boat trips.

6. 4-Person Picnic Set Patterned – XL

The Extra Large 4-Person Picnic Set makes eating in the great outdoors a breeze. The rucksack design means it’s comfortable to carry for longer periods of time, so you can easily work up an appetite over a long walk before you stop to eat.

A durable backpack with a large cool bag compartment, stainless steel cutlery set, plates and glasses provides everything you and your family will need for tent-side meals.

7. Enamel Mug – Alive in the Outdoors

Camping without a hot cup of tea to start the day is practically unthinkable. Don’t pack your best china, these enamel mugs are a great choice for throwing in the back of the car.

With a 400ml capacity and durable make, the Alive in the Outdoors Enamel Mug is great for enjoying cuppa amongst the elements. Easy to clean, it has an enamel coating, a stainless-steel rim and a quirky print.

8. 2 Litre Camping Kettle

And for that perfect cuppa, whatever you do, don’t forget the kettle!

The 2 Litre Camping Kettle is made of stainless steel and has an easy-grip plastic handle. Featuring a safety lid on the spout to prevent spills and reduce the risk of burns, it is ideal for camping trips or travelling.

9. Bamboo Plates

Easy to clean and made with eco-friendly fibre, Bamboo Plates are ideal for picnics and camping trips. They’re lightweight, robust and ideal for eating outdoors. We recommend buying enough for the whole family – and don’t forget the washing up liquid!

10. Coolbag

With more than enough room for your summer picnic, the Mountain Warehouse 25L Cool bag is ideal for bringing along for the ride. Super lightweight, the bag has a strong adjustable shoulder strap for easy carrying and side pockets for the little extras like napkins, plates etc. Strong, colourful and great for any outdoor event, the Cool bag is a great way to keep your family fed and happy with cool, fresh food.
