There’s no better way to get in vacation mode than connecting with nature while camping, but these (sometimes) remote trips require extra preparation.
No camping trip is complete without s’mores and campfire stories; however, finding the right site and pit location for the fire, maintaining the fire safely, and properly extinguishing the fire are important considerations for fire safety. Follow this link for details on these three important considerations, and remember to have a small fire extinguisher (if no water source is close by) and a fully equipped first-aid kit on hand in case of any accidents.
Insect & Sun Protection
Pack the proper insect repellents and sunscreen lotion. It’s also a good idea to bring long layers and hats for the whole family to ward off insect bites and minimize overexposure to the sun.
Foods should be packed in tight, waterproof containers or bags and stored in coolers. Make sure the chef of the family cooks the food properly and thoroughly and avoids cross contamination when preparing meals. Also, have lots of drinking water available to avoid dehydration.
