At some point in your time as a parent, summer will mean sending your kids to camp. That means, you’ll need to do a lot of shopping to ensure they’ll have everything they need to properly slum it out in the outdoors. With so much gear to account for, it can get confusing. The Youth Adventure Kit hopes to make that easier.
Made by HMW Outdoors, it’s a meticulously-curated kit of outdoor survival essentials geared specifically for student backpackers. It’s a literal all-in-one, assembling nearly everything they’ll require (everything but food), taking a lot of the guesswork (and shopping work) out of your hands.
Designed for kids from 5th grade to teenage years, the HMW Outdoors Youth Adventure Kit houses the assembled gear in a 70-liter backpack that can be adjusted in height between 14 and 21 inches, ensuring 10 year olds can carry it as comfortably as young adults. Inside, you get a complete sleeping system (25-degree sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and pillow) for comfortable nights in the tent, along with camping toiletries, so there’s no need to raid the bathroom cabinet.
There’s a complete mess kit for civilized dining, along with an XL microfiber beach towel, in case the trip involves enjoying a nearby body of water. Other contents include an individual first aid kit, multiple fire starters, a poncho for when it rains, a compass, a headlamp, a whistle, sunscreen, dry bags (for their dirty clothes), and even a couple of board games. And, yes, the bag comes with a water bladder to keep your kids hydrated during hikes.
Available now, the HMW Outdoors Youth Adventure Kit is priced at $399.99.
