Winter is coming!
Temps are starting to drop, we have already hulled the Snowtrekker out twice this month for some shoulder season camping. First at thanksgiving, where we paddled in Algonquin Park and spent 4 glorious days undisturbed by nothing but the wind and last weekend at Mew Lake campground where we enjoyed a toasty tent and happy smiles from trick or treater’s despite a full day of rain. We try and teach the kids to be responsible for packing their own belongings on every trip, gone are the days where Mom checks and rechecks what they have brought. To make it smooth and easy, I’ve come up with a cool weather packing list here Packing List winter camping. It can be altered/changed depending on trip length and destination. I have split the page into 4 columns, simply print one page off, cut into individual lists, marking each child’s initial on the top. They take their own list and cross off as they pack, I do this for every trip with variations to the list for the season and method of camping. Our kids are older now so I have updated and removed stuffed animal. Have a look and let us know what works for you and how do you get the kids involved in packing.
Let it snow!
