Claremont Camping Supplies

Basically, we're going to be outside for a couple of days and we're all interesting folk, but not that interesting. So bring some stuff along.

What could I pack?


  • Tents
    • The fewer tents we need to bring, the better. Need a tent? Ask one of these people! Maybe they can help.
      • People Who Own 2-Person Tents: Ellen, MacKenzie, Mike, Rudy, Andy
      • People Who Own 3-Person Tents: Kelly/Jay
      • People Who Own 4-Person Tents: Benj, Ellen
  • Tarps
  • Tablecloths
  • Folding chairs
    • I'm going to repeat this one: bring a goddamned chair. Seriously. At least one.
  • Blankets
  • Proper outdoor sleeping supplies
    • Sleeping bag and sleeping pad
    • Air mattress, pump, and blankets
    • Pillows
  • Flashlight or camping lantern
  • Batteries for flashlight or camping lantern

Eating and Drinking

  • Cup for water/beverages
