Camping is becoming a very popular type of vacation to take, especially amongst younger people. This is probably because it’s so cheap – in many places you don’t even have to pay to pitch – and it’s a lot of fun when you’re doing it in a group. It’s also a brilliant way to get closer to nature if that is your goal. There are no restrictions with camping like there are with being in a hotel in the center of a busy city. However, there are a few things you need to know before to set off with a tent in tow, in order to have the best experience that camping has to offer. Here’s a quick guide for your camping essentials to make your adventure awesome!

Choose your ‘accommodation’ wisely

These days there are plenty of different options for you to choose from when it comes to outdoor living. Tents come in all shapes and sizes and you will need to consider what your needs will be on the trip when choosing your own. For example, if you are camping with lots of other people, you may consider getting a large tent that sleeps eight or more people. This is also a good option for if it rains whilst you are away, as that way, at least you can all gather in the tent together. Make sure you choose a tent with a high HH rating to make sure that it is waterproof and always choose one with a built in groundsheet. When it comes to sleeping arrangements, you may want to sleep in the tent, or you might set up for the night in an outdoor hammock. Even if you don’t spend the night in the hammock, they are great for stargazing from or for watching the sunrise. You can buy one made hammocks for your travels that you will be able to store easily too.

Pack the right clothes

If you are traveling for some time, you’ll need to bring a fair amount of clothes with you. Of course, there is always the idea that these will be washed at some point – perhaps with travel-purpose detergent, if one of your parties brings a bowl. But you will need plenty of socks and jumpers for when the temperature drops on an evening. Even when it is hot and sunny during the daytime, it is more than likely to be cold at night, so make sure you are wrapped up warm. Throw caution to style and choose comfy items only – a great pair of walking boots is a must, and even Doc Martens can be super-sturdy in poor weather conditions.

Bring food with you

It’s absolutely essential to bring food with you when you are camping. If you’re going somewhere remote, you’re not going to just be able to pop out to the 7/11 for late night snacks, should you get hungry. On a different note, unless you are trained in survival techniques, it’s not a good idea to get your food from the land either. Wild fruits and berries may look appetizing, but many of them can actually be poisonous – so you should probably leave your breville at home! Packing an abundance of foods that won’t go off is your best bet. Tinned fruit, lots of cereal bars and crisps are things that should last you your whole trip. If you want cooked food, packet rice, beans and soups can all be cooked easily providing you have a pan and a fire.
