Finding the Right Camping Kit for You
Are you taking advantages of the beautiful, Canadian summer? If the answer is yes ask yourself if you are prepared. Camping is one of Canadian’s favourite activities during the summer months, but they can also yield unexpected and traumatic incidences, thus it is important to be prepared for when these accidents may occur.
Luckily, First Aid Canada has multiple first aid kits for hiking and cottages, etc. as well as products to treat burns and heal wounds, such as WoundSeal. There are a few kits that are popular among Canadian campers so we thought we would introduce you to them to help you better understand which “camping” style of First Aid Kit would best suit your lifestyle and your needs:
Hikers’ Kit – Deluxe
The First Aid Canada Hikers’ Kit Deluxe is ideal for extended hiking excursions, making it also a choice for campers who partake in less vigorous camping trips. This kit contains additional recommended first aid supplies to treat serious wounds and trauma related injuries in an outdoor setting as well as items to treat smaller injuries such as, insect bites, blister care and prevention and sun care. All of these products are packaged in a lightweight multi-compartment pack, which features an adjustable waist belt and quick release buckle.
Cottage Kit – Deluxe
The First Aid Canada Cottage Kit – Deluxe is ideal for being prepared at the cottage as it is optimal for treating injuries occuring in outdoor and indoor settings. Depending on your level of shelter while camping this kit could be a great fit for your family as it consists of supplies for treating serious injuries as well as minor injuries such as big bites.
Survival Kit – 1-2 People
The First Aid Canada Survival Kit is recommended for those campers who partake it vigorous excursions.
