Camping is an activity that is related to a few key terms: nature, survival skills, building your own fire as well as setting up tents. While it is a great hobby, many view camping as an educational opportunity especially your young people. The connection that youth establish with each other through a “hardship” such as camping outdoors with limited resources, can be very beneficial for creating strong relationships.
Here is some of the most common equipment you will need for a successful camping trip.
List of common equipment
- First aid kit

When it comes to planning a trip outdoors, camping offers some of the most affordable options. As previously mentioned, campers are closer to nature from the moment they wake up to when you go to bed. It is proven to have an impact on reducing stress and contributes to emotional and physical health.
So, if you’re in doubt to try camping, don’t be! Call up your friends or family and start planning a cool camping trip for the warmer spring days coming up.
