Thinking of going camping this summer? Make sure you have all the kit before you leave. Nothing is more frustrating than not having everything you need when you get to the campsite and having to rush out to get something essential, especially late at night! Definitely do a test run at home in your garden; check you can put up the tent with ease and you have all the supplies you need for your trip.
Here’s our top suggestions:
1. The Tent! We would advise investing in something decent to last but you can pick up some great bargains second hand. As long as you are happy with it, that’s what matters. Vango tents have a really good reputation, they are great quality. Prices range from £200-£300. Something like this would be great for a family.

2. Sleeping Bags. Keep warm, even in the summer you may need some blankets too at night.
Great Little Trading Company sell beautiful luxury sleeping bags for kids but at around £50 each, they aren’t cheap! For something a bit more on a budget try this Regatta Kids sleeping bag for £13.46 from OutdoorGB.com

Camping wouldn’t be complete without a BBQ! You can buy fold up, portable BBQ’s especially for camping that you can use time and time again like the Son of Hibachi Charcoal Barbecues (available from Ebay and Amazon). Or you could buy disposable ones, readily available from most supermarkets. This family sized one from Sainsburys is just £5.50.
Buy Sainsbury’s Home Family/Party Size Disposable BBQ online from Sainsbury’s, the same great quality, freshness and choice you’d find in store. Choose from 1 hour delivery slots and collect Nectar points.
Have fun Camping.
