muskoka resortsSchool is out, the kids are getting restless, and work has been stressful lately. The warm, sunny days are calling your name and those suitcases in the closet are just begging to come out!  When the days get longer and your family needs an escape to enjoy the beautiful summer season, it is time for a family vacation at one of your favorite Muskoka resorts, Severn Lodge.

Gearing Up For Your Family Adventure

It can be an overwhelming task to get all of the bags and needed items packed for your kids before getting yourself packed. By the time you get to your own suitcase you are in a rush, and there is usually one essential item that gets left behind. To make things a little easier for you, we’ve created a checklist to make packing just a little easier.

  • Essential toiletries
  • Beach Towel
  • Sandals/water shoes
  • Shoes comfortable for walking (hiking boots if you plan on hitting the trails)
  • Shorts and long pants
  • T-Shirts and tank tops
  • Light sweater
  • Afternoon snacks
  • Hat with a visor
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect Repellant
  • Aloe lotion (just in case of sunburn)
  • Swimwear (a one piece is suggested for activities like the banana boat)
  • Backpack or beach tote
  • A Camera (waterproof preferred)
  • Waterproof bag to keep valuables dry
  • Water bottle
  • Any required fishing licenses if you plan on casting a line

Another fantastic idea is to leave just a little bit of room in your suitcase for when you find that fun souvenir to bring home. That way you don’t need to find space or carry it in a bag that risks any breakables getting damaged on the way home.
