Be sure to bring several camping flashlights, lanterns and plenty of extra batteries. A lantern or two will cast some welcome light in camp. Your lamps can be run on your own power (crank lanterns), run on a battery, kerosene or propane. For propane or kerosene lanterns be sure to have some extra mantles on hand if any of your lights need them.
Lighting is important don’t underestimate its value, especially if there are children in your party. Children should have their own camping flashlights. What child doesn’t remember playing camping games in their tent late at night by the glow of a lantern or flashlight? Kids also enjoy glow sticks.
