After several years of forgetting things for camping...I finally came up with an idea...we should have a binder with a Camp List and start to journal our camp trips. We started this in 2005 and I am so glad we did. The camp list is on our computer, so if I need to update it or print more sheets out, it is simple. Taking time to read our memories during a camp trip is wonderful.
Each night before bed, or during breakfast I ask each family member to tell me a memory of the day and journal it. We also have visitors sign our book and share any memories of the day. We have gone camping with friends and again looking back at what we journal is so special to us.
If you are having trouble remembering items for camping - give this idea a try. We also write down a menu for each day, this way we remember the food items too. If we plan to have Mac and Cheese a night...I know I need butter and milk too. It is a big check off list before we leave. The boys help me and like to yell " Check"!
