Not sure what to bring along for first-aid care on your next camping trip? These must have first-aid items for camping are a great place to start!
Camping is one of my favorite Summer activities and I am a little bit bummed that with everything going on this year, we’re not planning any major trips. Luckily, there’s a few first come, first serve campsites not too far away from us that we plan to spend the day at a few times before our little girl is here. Kinda like camping, just with a better bathroom and way better bed ;)
Even with our day trips planned though, I plan to pack some staples that always go with us when we’re camping. S’mores ingredients, obviously. But a first-aid kit is a must, too! You never know when you’ll get hurt or need some relief from a bug bite, scratch, etc. So here are my must have first-aid items for camping.
first-aid kit essentials
Here’s the basic first aid kit that we always bring. Depending on if we’re heading out for a hike, going kayaking, or doing some other exploring – we add on to the list with items in the next section.
- Aloe Vera Gel
- Antibacterial Ointment
- Antiseptic Wipes
- Assorted Bandages
- Bug Bite Relief
- Bug Spray
- Eye Drops
Eye drops are a must for me as a contact wearer, but as a camper, I feel like they’re even more of a necessity. Between the dirt and smoke, eye drops are a lifesaver when camping! And I highly recommend the Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ line of preservative free eye drops.
Each bottle has a built-in purifying filter that keeps bacteria out and has over 220 drops for less than the price of a pack of 60 single use vials. The Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ Multi Symptom Eye Drops relieve red, burning, itchy, dry, irritated, gritty or watery eyes for up to 12 hours. Perfect for campfires and when you inevitably get dirt in your eyes on your trip!
