A camping first aid kit checklist comes in handy whether you are you intend to build a DIY first aid kit or use a pre-packaged kit.
Having a camping first aid kit on hand will help you to feel more confident about handling those bumps, bruises and scrapes that often is part and parcel of spending part of your life in the great outdoors.
Truth is, most pre-packaged first aid kits don’t have everything you may need to take care of even small injuries.
Meaning that even if you want to use a pre-packaged kit, there are some first aid items that might not be included. And you will need to buy those separately.
So we prepared a camping first aid kit checklist to help cover all of the basics.
Just copy this checklist and check off the items you have ready to go. This way, you will not forget any of the essential things you need to take along.
