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?
Sawyer Permethrin Premium Insect Repellent is used on clothing, not skin, and it provides long-lasting protection against ticks.
One of the most popular, and readily available, means of tick prevention these days is the use of permethrin. Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment is easy to find at most any sporting goods store and applies quick and easy to your clothing, boots, gear, etc.
While not technically a filtered water bottle, Sawyer Products’ water filtration system can transform anything into a safe, clean drinking vessel. Simply fill up the included reusable pouch at any water source, screw the pouch onto the filter, and either drink directly from the filter or squeeze the now-filtered water into another vessel (like a water bottle or pot for cooking).
