Sleeping Bag and Pillow
Even if the weather forecast looks hot for your camping trip, bring a sleeping bag for every camper. Woodsy or mountainous areas can have temperature drops of 20 degrees or more at night, especially when there are clear summer skies.
Without a pillow, you could be facing a rocky night's sleep. Kids also like having a pillow for the long car ride and as a little piece of home to sleep with if camping is a new experience. Your pillows may smell like a campfire for a few days after your trip, so consider getting a different set of pillows for camping.
