Spring is here! It’s a beautiful thing to witness flowers coming to life and little green leaves sprouting from their buds, but what’s even better is that it’s almost the season for camping and outdoor festivals! It is the month of hoarding camping essentials in preparation for multi-day getaways and camping trips for the coming summer. Better prepared than sorry, right?
Hence, we at Napier decided to share with you all, a Napier-staff approved list of essentials for your upcoming outdoor adventures!
If you leave ‘get a tent’ for last-minute, you might as well forget about starting your camping trip right. You’re not going to enjoy an emergency run to Wal-Mart to grab whatever is left on the sale shelf, only to have wet socks in the night because your tent couldn’t handle a light rain.

There are many ways to ruin a good camping trip, but sleeping on the cold hard ground might take the cake—that’s just no way to end a fun camping day! With endless options for activities while camping, investing in a quality air mattress is so important.
Did you know that Spring is the best time of year for whitewater rafting? If you’re waking up early to catch the rapids, you are not going to have the energy to battle that backache. Make sure to invest in a good air mattress or a quality sleeping bag so you and your squad can wake up the next day ready to conquer the great outdoors!
Sure, campfires are great but how about when you’re inside your tent rummaging through your things at night to look for your phone? Or when you’re pitching your tent in the dark? Not so much. In fact, according to Reader’s Digest, one of people’s worst camping nightmares is arriving in the dark.
Don’t forget to pack battery powered lights, preferably something you can hang inside your tent. You can also use string LED lights which can double as your camp decoration. Let’s be honest, what’s an outdoor festival without lights?
Limited space available at your campsite? Hiking all day? You’re going to thank yourself for buying these folding chairs. Use it while you roast your S’mores and tuck them away while you sleep.
Migraine? Backache? Hungover? Make sure you pack some medicine in your camping kit, and throw in a couple of bandages and sterile dressings while you’re at it. After all, even pro hikers and cyclists are bound to get scrapes here and there.
Active.com advice their readers to keep a first-aid kit in the car, so in case you forget to pack some, there will always be extra within arm’s reach. Smart idea!
Of course you wouldn’t want to forget toiletries, food, clothing, etc. But if you get these five essentials right, you’re well on your way to a fun-filled camping trip! So what are you waiting for? Start planning your next camping trip!
