i've only been camping like twice before i had ds, we camped by a loch once and we put the drink ( ir was beer - not milk blush) in a carrier bag and hooked the handles round a stick in the water LOL.

The granny method: you put the container of milk in a bowl with some water at the bottom, drape a damp cloth over it and put the edges of the cloth in the bowl touching the water. water on cloth evaporates and keeps milk coolish.

Coolbox with icepacks?

use the coolbox to keep things fresh

We take frozen for the first day as sally suggests, then only buy a pint at a time and decant into a thermos (better than coolbox).

Or send the kids to the shop for fresh evey morning...

we put it in a bucket of water with some ice (bags from supermarket at 99p along with beers and it stays lovely and chilled

Put under a wet terracotta pot, the evaporation will keep it nice and cool.
