People of any age can enjoy the fun and excitement of camping. Familiarizing yourself with all the best information will help you get more enjoyment out of it. Take a look at the following tips and prepare for the journey of a lifetime.

Sleeping Bag

Pick out your sleeping bag according to what season it is. Don’t take a heavy sleeping bag out in the summer, it could make you sweat and be uncomfortable all night long. If you use a lightweight sleeping bag during the winter, you can spend your night shivering if it’s cold outside. You may even subject yourself to hypothermia.

Your sleeping bag should be seasonally appropriate. By bringing a winter sleeping bag in the summer you may end up sweating instead of sleeping. On the other hand, if you pack a lighter summer bag during cold weather camping, you are going to not get any rest. You could even experience hypothermia.

Be sure that your tent will comfortably fit everyone that you will be sharing it with to have a good trip. A bigger tent means easier movement, which can be useful when you have to urinate at night.

A tent needs to be the proper size for all people staying in it. This will ensure comfort while inside the tent.

Preparation could mean the difference between a good camping experience and a dreaded one. Only go camping when you have prepared yourself for it. If camping at a new location, make sure you investigate the geography, climate, and local wildlife so you are prepared for any dangers.

To start your fires at camp, use dryer lint as kindling. In order to have enough lint to start a fire, begin collecting it a month prior to your trip. An easy way to remember to save up your lint is to keep a plastic bag near your dryer as a reminder. By doing this, you’ll be able to collect the kindling on the day you’re taking the trip.

Camping can be incredibly fun or incredibly dangerous depending on just one factor: preparation. It is a bad idea to go camping unprepared. Research the area you are planning on camping at.

Oranges can be used for insect repellent. After you’ve eaten the flesh of the fruit, save all the peels. When you need bug repellant, rub the peels on your skin to repel mosquitos naturally and on the cheap!

Pack a roll of duct tape with the rest of your supplies; this sticky wonder can help in a variety of circumstances. It can fix so many different things, holes, leaks and just about anything else that arises.

When camping with children, create special themed breakfasts. Take little juice boxes, mini cereal boxes, and fruit into the woods and be sure to tie them to a nearby tree. Let younger children wake up and hunt for their breakfast. The kids will love it.

People of every age love camping. Camping know-how is something that must be learned if you are going to truly enjoy the time spend out in the wild. Fortunately for you, the tips you read above should guide you on your way to a great camping experience.
