Tinkergarten Leaders’ Summer Gear List
Camp Tinkergarten is off and running and we are so excited for a summer full of delicious, muddy, sunny outdoor fun.
With kids comes gear, and we asked our thousands of Tinkergarten leaders for the items that they can’t do summer without, from the perfect sun hat to the best sunscreen to tick protection and more. Getting outside to play might be the most important thing we can do for our kids this summer.
Here are some suggestions for maximizing safety and fun. Read about each item below or check them out — all in one place — in the Summer Gear Favorites section of our Camp Tinkergarten Store.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.
Ultra-compact and lightweight
I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
