How to Do Group Camping With This Gear


Camping in a group can be fun, but it can also be a hassle. Camping with more people means you have to bring more equipment and supplies, and while you’re able to break up the load, it doesn’t always go smoothly. If you want to bring your entire family or your best friends camping and you’re worried about how the gear is going to come along, then consider chipping in for these awesome items to accommodate everyone.

This Amazing Pod Tent

The POD Tent is a revolutionary tent designed for people who are looking for a new approach to social camping. The best part about this tent is that since it’s modular, you can buy as many attachable tents as you need, and change up the tent’s layout depending on the size of your group. The main outer pod sleeps eight people, but you can add more rooms for family members who want privacy or for the kids who want their own room. Though you might think this tent is too complex to set up, it’s even easier than a standard tent.

Cooking for a few people is easy. Cooking for a group at a campsite is a lot harder.

This will make you the star chef of your campsite kitchen, and everyone will be happy you brought it along.

Camping with a group generally means a lack of what might be some much needed privacy. When you need to “go”, whether it be to the bathroom, to take a shower, or just to change your sweaty camp clothes, the Portable Changing Tent by Clevr is what your group needs while camping.

This Necessary Water Cooler

This Life-Saving Canopy
