When camping, it’s important to be prepared. The following are items that could help you in an emergency.

A knife can always come in handy as long as you stay safe with it. Bring a notebook and pen just in case you really need to write something. Pack a flashlight and a few spare batteries. You will need a flashlight when you are in the dark. Bring a few walkie talkies (the number you will need, depends on how many are on the trip with you) to stay in communication with fellow campers.

Also pack a pair of tweezers in case you get a sliver. You don’t want to get an infection. Pack a whole pack of bandages, you will need them if you get a cut. Bring antiseptics in case you get a cut or scrape. Bring a few medicines in case you get sick during a camping trip. In extreme cases you may need to use the medicine until you get to the hospital.

You should probably pack everything in a waterproof backpack. A pop-up tent will help because when you set it out, it folds out by itself and it’s water proof. Also, it is small and can fit in a small bag easily.
