Kit List for a Family Hike

Beside all the usual things you would pack for a day’s hike, you’ll need to supplement with additional bits and pieces to keep your whole family safe and content throughout the family hike outdoors.

  • Babycarrier: If your child is under three, there’s great chance you’ll end up carrying them for much of the walk.
Kit List for a Family Hike
To keep your whole family safe and content throughout the hike, you have to take more things than usual.
  • Trekking poles: They make carrying a child a whole lot easier, particularly over unstable terrain. Children enjoy taking a turn with them too.
  • Group shelter: To keep your entire family warm during stops and to raise morale if necessary, you’ll need a group shelter.
  • First aid kit: This is extremely important when you’re responsible for children.
  • Sit mats: You’ll need them to make breaks and stops more comfortable.
  • Waterproofs: Snowsuit-style all-in-ones are effective for babies. For toddlers and small children, a dungaree-jacket combo works well.
  • Rucksacks for all: Doing so, young children can feel involved and ideally carry some of their own clothing or some other things.
  • Spare clothes: Take more than you’d carry for yourself, because children get cold faster. Regularly check their temperature, especially if they are being carried.
  • Gloves and hats: Don’t forget sunhats on hot days, especially for babies.
  • Suncream and midge repellent: They are essential in summer but carry them all-year-round. Use child-specific high-factor sun protection on young children.
  • Extra food: Take enough snacks for the entire family, especially for children.
