Essential tips for planning a group trip


When planning a group trip, it is important to make sure that everyone is well-prepared and all of the necessary supplies are packed and ready to go. To help you plan the perfect group camping adventure, we have put together a list of essential tips for planning a group camping trip.

1. Decide on a destination

This most important thing to plan before you leave for a trip is where you want to go. Before you leave for a trip, you want to make sure that you have agreed on a destination that everyone is happy with. Once you have the destination set, you can begin your trip plan. You can see our upcoming Share Bus trips here.

2. Make a plan

Once you have decided on a destination, it is time to make a plan for the trip. You should decide what sites you would like to see, activities you would like to do, and where you are going to stay. It is also useful to put together an itinerary for the day by day of your camping trip. If your group trip is a Share Bus road trip – don’t worry, we have already created the itinerary for you!

3. Prep, plan, and pack

Before you set off on your camping adventure, make sure that prep, plan, and pack for the journey. It is important to pack tents, mattresses, flashlights, cooking utensils, and other camping essentials. You should also make sure that you have water and first aid supplies.

4. Assign tasks

To make sure that the trip is a success, assign tasks to each group member. This could include planning meals, setting up tents, or driving. Assigning tasks ahead of time will help ensure that everyone is aware of what needs to be done and that everyone is contributing.

5. Set expectations

Before you head out on the trip, it’s important to set expectations for everyone in the group. This includes expectations for behaviour, respect, cleanliness, and more. Setting expectations ahead of time will help ensure that everyone is on the same page and that the trip runs smoothly.

Planning a group camping trip can be a lot of work, but it can also be a lot of fun. With the right preparation and planning, your group can have a memorable and enjoyable camping experience.
