Camping Hacks

Jessica Manuell:

  • Pre-cook meals and freeze them. Helps keep things cold in the cooler too.
  • If you don’t mind eating scrambled eggs, crack them into a Nalgene bottle for transport.
  • A dedicated pair of socks to sleep in will help dry out/keep your feet warm.
  • Pack a small dustpan/broom into the tent bag to keep the tent tidy.
  • Heavy-duty pie tins (not aluminum) double as plates/skillets.

Stephanie Rustad:

  • Pre-make breakfast burritos, wrap them in tinfoil, and just heat them up on the fire or grill!
  • Always pack extra socks and rain gear.
  • Use totes rather than suitcases or duffle bags. They pack easily and keep everything dry.

Chelsea Hansler:

  • Pre-made meals in tinfoil ready to throw on the grill/fire.
  • Battery-operated/solar lights are a must, or even glow sticks.
  • Pack spices in pill containers.
  • Bring a rope and clothespins for a clothesline.
  • A water jug or used laundry soap jug for hand washing.

Bridget Blake:

  • Use a headlamp as a tent light by hanging it up inside. If you have a jug of water you can wrap it around there to illuminate like a lantern.
  • Tea Tree oil to keep ticks away
  • Bundle of sage over the fire to keep mosquitos away (can we tell I don’t like bugs??)

Laura Coppola:

  • For camping with a little one, I set up a pack-n-play. I tried the little baby tents when she was younger and that didn’t go well. I also hear you can blow up a little pool and use that for a toddler bed. I might test that out this summer.
  • Create a meal plan and sort all ingredients into separate small bags. Put them all into one gallon-sized bag and label it with the day you will use it.
  • Keep a smaller cooler with the food you need to access easily during the day (snacks, sandwiches, etc.)
  • Make Pudgy Pies!
