About Excel Camping Packing List
This Camping Checklist template is one that is created to hand out to Scouts preparing for a campout. I will usually make modifications to the list based on the specifics of the camping trip before handing it over to the boys. There is absolutely nothing fancy about this particular spreadsheet.
The check boxes are created using cell borders or brackets. It is very easy to customize the checklist.
Besides the normal camping essentials, the items you may need will largely depend on the weather, your planned activities, your menu, and the duration of the trip.
