Bring a hat for night time. Even at this time of year it can get cold in the middle of the night without one.

Insect repellent if going west.

String and pegs to make a washing line.

Something big to transport water so you don't have to keep going to the standpipe.

If you get fed up with rice and pasta, Quinoa is nice and easy to cook while camping. (Also very healthy and full of protien) Bring jars of ready made sauce for easy to cook meals.

Have a great time.

Is that Devon? Shouldn't be too cold then, but nights in a tent can be colder than you'd think so have some extra blankets ready and maybe put them to bed in socks.

Make sure everybody has a torch or is with someone with one.

Flipflops or jellies for everybody for bathroom visits during the night (or use a bucket!)

Fly spray - tent tends to fill up with bugs during the early evening so spray and zip up about 30 mins before anybody goes to bed.

As well as a huge water container, bring a large jug/tupperware to keep water for making drinks (easier to access than container)

Have a read of this thread , especially Katherine's posts - loads of hints.
