Basic First Aid Kit

Wherever you are going camping you should always take a basic first aid kit with you to cover basic wound dressing, sun protection, insect bites and non-serious illness.

However, depending on where your destination, how far from medical help you will be and what animals you may encounter, you may want to include some of the other more advanced items on the list.

If you will be spending time a long way from medical assistance this list is not for you. You should seek professional advice and training.
