As a part of the school’s recreational activity or a bonding time with your dad, you all must have got a little taste of camping in the wild. It doesn’t matter if you have experienced this or not because this article here is to help you plan a perfect camping trip with your friends.
With planning, we don’t mean putting things in order, but just a few tips to make this trip seamless and memorable for you.
1. Find out about the weather:
Whenever planning a camping trip, the first thing you should do is always check the weather for the days you plan to set that camp. We agree weather can be unpredictable, but the prediction can sometimes work in your favour. It will surely help you avoid getting stuck in a thunderstorm.
Choose the days with clear blue skies and have a great trip.
If you’re someone new to camping, you must know that just like hotels, the camping sites also need reservations prior to arrival. As you must know, the country allots a specific area to turn it into a camping site. And when the season approaches, many people start packing their bags to explore the wild side of the world.
When you’re planning a camping trip with your friends, there is one advantage- preparing meals.
While on the site you will be doing several activities, like hiking, rafting etc. and it is best to have planned meals for the day. You can split this duty with your friends so that each person gets to carry equal amounts of food that will help you before you get famished. Just make sure you and your friends know about each other’s allergies and choose the food accordingly.
4. Packing list:
The most important thing about a camping trip is having a packing list so that you don’t miss an essential back home as you won’t find any stores in the wilderness. Not like any other trip on a beach or a mountain top, camping trips require some specific items you must carry.
Tent, sleeping bags, folding pocket knife etc. are a few of the things that you must include on your list to have a smooth camping trip.
5. Health checkups:
The veterans of the campaign know, but the newbies, it is advised that you get a full body checkup done once before your camping journey starts. You will get a general idea about your current immunity, allergies (if any) and will be able to find solutions before things turn worse out in the wild. These are just small precautionary steps and usually don’t hamper your plannings. Plus, there is no harm in getting yourself checked any time!.
Last but not least, if you have always been a city person, you must carry important stuff that keeps your hygiene on the check. A lot of people get uncomfortable around unhygienic situations, and the camping sites might not have all the products you need. So make sure you carry a little pouch with toilet paper, sanitizer and other antiseptics.
Camping is an adventure, which everyone should experience in their lives. It is an excellent break from the bustling city life and gives you peace and calm along with the beauty of nature in its majestic form. We hope the guide we put together for you proves to be helpful, and your next camping trip becomes one of the best memories of your life.
