Packing for Camp Bestival 2013

Well it’s officially less than a week! I’m a total geek for a list. I’ve written a few lists and a list of lists.  So you could say I am prepared for Thursday. I know what I need, I have done a packing list, a shopping list, a to borrow list, and finally a kids list.

I’ve taken the time to create a downloadable packing list for you to print off and tick as you go, Use the back to add any bits I may have missed. I hope you find it useful!
