Each camper is STOCKED - you’ll find:

  • bag chairs for as many as the camper sleeps

  • coffee pot with filters

  • eating utensils and cooking tools (pots, pans, silverware, bowls, cups, knives, cutting board, can opener, measuring cups)

  • 2 hobo pie makers (YUM) + fire cooker sticks

  • cleaning supplies (dish soap and scrubber, surface spray, toilet scrubber, broom)

  • small grill with fuel

  • miscellaneous items including lighters, games, spices, etc.


Not sure what to bring for your trip? Consider the less is more, theory.

  • Bring items that are universal that can be used in different meals. Bread, cheese slices, tortillas, eggs.

  • If you prefer disposables consider bringing paper towel, silverware & paper plates.

  • Bring cooking oil or butter!

  • Fruit for snacks, cliff bars or your other on the go favorites for "Im having so much fun I don't want to make a sandwhich".

  • Sauces - bring all the sauces. Generally, they don't take up much room and can transform your meal in different ways using similar ingredients.

  • Sure it's easy to grab pop tarts or donuts for breakfast. How does a nice piece of homemade bread with local jam sound? Bring your jam, find some bread from a bakery on the trip!

  • Make sure to bring your preferred accouterments for caffeine. Coffee, sugar, cream or creamer. You don't want to be a coffee drinker and realize you forgot this important piece of your life.
