The best part of camping is the time you get to spend outdoors. This can come with some unexpected needs for simple first aid so bringing these supplies along with you is a good idea. Kids will do a lot of running and may end up with some bumps and scrapes. It could be allergy season and you’ll need something to relieve your itchy skin and sinus congestion. You can get right on it and turn the frowns upside down if you’re prepared with a fix for whatever ails your patient.
For skin and muscle related problems pack bandages, gauze pads, ace bandages, antibiotic cream, calamine lotion, aloe, Epsom salts, tweezers, manicure scissors, a small magnifying glass, eye wash cups, and ice packs.
For pain, allergies, and tummy trouble pack benadryl, cold & cough medicine, anti-diarrhea medication, antacids, pain reliever, and anti-itch cream.
Be sure to pack everyone’s prescription medication as well, including the family pets’. Carry enough to last through your trip or even a few days extra, just in case you decide to extend your trip.
The family will be having plenty of fun as they run, play, splash, swim, and climb. If that leads to a blister, splinter, or scraped knees, you will have what you need to ease the injury right away. They can get back in the game and continue having fun without having to wait for you to make a run to the store for supplies. You might consider also packing some puzzles and handheld games in case the patient needs to stay quiet for awhile.
