    Yep we go quite a bit. Main things tent , sleeping bags, camp stove, light, blow up beds or camper beds ,tourch, water carrier, bucket{in case of wees in night} toilet roll, black sacs, washing up bowl, liquid, first aid kit, spare blankets, wet weather gear, Food if cooking, tin opener, pastic cups plates bowls knifes and forks spoons etc. Insect replellent sun cream, sorry cant think of more at mo. Will be hard work probabily more at night as its different for the kids as in the day there probabily wear them selfs out. Drink for you when there all alsleep. Deck chairs, fold up table, tea towls, I loved camping and im sure the kids will to.

    We bought all the camping stuff last year and ended up selling it all on ebay for half price cos of the weather! its ok camping if you can guarantee the weather!
    good luck to you if you do it.

    Camping with kids is great fun.
    Keep a potty for night time wee's.
    The kids love the freedom, and when it rains just let them run around in their swimsuits. (that's what we used to do when mine were small- less wet clothes to try and dry ;) )

    My rule is I won't get in a tent that I can't stand up in - ;)

    We've got a 10m x 10m 12 person tent for 5 of us :)
