Planning a camping trip for a family of 3-4 is one thing. Planning a group trip for a family reunion, a club gathering, or a church retreat is another thing entirely. Doing it right takes focus, checklists, organization, and TIME! If you have an idea for a group outing, or have taken on the responsibility for such a gathering you need to get started about three months before the group comes together. To help you out, we’re offering this planning guide with the basic mileposts in the planning process and how may days ahead of the “big event” you should be hitting each of them. Oh, and if your camping trip is for Labor Day, get started now! Good luck … it’s going to be great!
Tip: Start scoping out what camping gear you already have vs. what you still need and shop the camping area of Basspro.com for what you need.
Tip: Print out a helpful camping checklist here, then check it off the checklist while you load up.
