What to Bring

What To Bring

Mighty Earthling is like camping with a theme. Plan to bring most of the items you would on a regular camping trip.

  • Tent, mattress pads, sleeping bags, pillows.
  • Tarp!
  • Camping lanterns, flashlights, solar decorative lights, battery-operated candles.
  • Bathing suits, swim diapers.
  • Towels, hand towels for the bathroom.
  • Plates, cutlery, plastic drinkware. We will provide food but you need to supply the items on which and with which you eat it. Please no single use items.
  • Mug for hot drinks, non-disposable plastic wine glass for, yes, wine
  • Camping chairs.
  • Special Food. Simple and kid-friendly Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner will be provided, but we know that kids have distinct likes and dislikes so be sure you have enough of what you know they will eat. Please also bring any drinks or snacks you’d like. There will be a refrigerator available for personal items.
  • Water bottle for each family member.
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, parasols, water spritzers, etc. It will be hot!
  • Tecnu, insect repellent, tick repellent. There is a lot of poison oak.
  • Trash bags. It may be helpful to bring pop-up hampers with garbage bags designated for trash and recycling for your camping area.
  • Floaties or noodles for the pool. Pool is quite deep so you’ll want these for small ones. No large boats or rafts this year please.
  • Picnic blankets for spreading out on the lawn.
  • Warm clothing (the nights can get chilly). You can check weather here.
  • Pajamas
  • Toiletries
  • Closed-toed shoes, socks.  Here are some effective alternatives to Deet for ticks and mosquitos and more information in general.
  • Costume items to be your favorite creature for the Creature Disco.
  • If you have been to Mighty Earthling before, bring your Mighty Earthling cape and passport.
  • Balls or other lawn game fun items.
  • There is not a lot of room to ride bikes or scooters. Everything is very centralized and very easy to walk to.
  • Camera, video camera.
  • Guitars or percussion instruments for Friday singalong.
  • Adult libations to share (I prefer Scotch, just sayin).
  • Please bring your favorite cheese and bottle of wine to share at Saturday’s wine and cheese happy hour!
  • Earplugs
  • Any craft or activity you’d like to share
  • Facepaint if you have some to share
  • Baby monitor (if desired)
  • Your happy self!
