So, you want to know what to bring camping if you’re a girl?
We pulled in our favorite female adventurist and asked her what she thinks are the top 5 things every girl should bring camping and how to camp as a woman.
We’re gonna assume you’ve got all the basics like a tent etc, and are looking for things specifically designed to help a girl out when camping.
This is what she came up with.
5 things every girl should bring camping
A must-have if you’re going to be camping anywhere without access to toilets.
And even then, this little gadget often beats going out of your tent in the middle of the night to reach the toilet block.
It works well for both men and women.
But from a women’s perspective, it’s really easy to use.
The Scrubzz sponges are one of my favorite products for camping. They’re perfect for staying clean when you have no access to showers or when the showers are as bad as not showering at all.
You simply add water to the sponge and can use the sponge to wash both your body and hair without the need to rinse.
They work really well and do actually make you feel clean and fresh.
The only thing I don’t like is that they aren’t biodegradable, so please be a respectful camper and dispose of them responsibly!
The Surviveware biodegradable wet wipes are another alternative or add-on to the Scrubzz sponges.
While you can’t wash your hair with them, they do a great job of freshening you up quickly.
They don’t have a scent to prevent attracting unwanted bugs while you’re hiking or around camp.
They’re also completely alcohol-free, pH balanced, and include aloe vera, so are perfect for even sensitive skin or babies.
This little menstruation kit is a must for me and should be the same for any female camper on every trip!
Not only is it discrete but it includes 1 sequin travel bag, 2 organic & biodegradable pads, 1 organic & biodegradable panty liner, 2 MaskIT feminine disposal pouches, and 1 feminine wipe.
They also have other kits available that include tampons and soft cups.
Another hygiene product that’s worth its weight in gold, particularly if you have no access to showers is a portable bidet.
Whether you use it to freshen up after going to the toilet or when you’re on your time of the month, it can instantly make you feel a whole lot cleaner.
There’s both a gentle and strong option depending on your needs, and both have surprisingly good water pressure for such a small and compact device.
It runs off standard batteries and one set of batteries lasts a really long time.
Hopefully, I successfully helped answer your question about what things every girl should bring camping with these 5 little gems.
It really isn’t much different going camping as a woman in comparison to a man, there are just a few little extras that you need to think about for your own added comfort.
