How to Make Camping a Success

Jul 24, 2008
Camping is a great way to gather whether for family or friends. It is one way to come in contact with nature and to have adventure. It is one way of taking a break from city rush and life's daily routine. There is so much to bear in mind when planning to camp.

Here are some that are noteworthy to mention:

? Plan Ahead

They said planning ahead can spoil out the fun but not planning ahead to frustrations, regret and a total disaster of the camp. You can plan on what to bring and where to camp. But on what to do, it is better to be spontaneous.

? List the equipments you need

To avoid forgetting later, you have to make a detailed list of what to bring. You have to look for different angles. Say for example, you need to prepare for sudden change in weather even if you already checked the news, because it is something that is way beyond your control. However do not forget to include insect repellent just to be ready.

? Have several activities in mind

Camping should not be boring. If you're the one who's organizing the camp, you should think of several activities that everybody might be interested in participating. These activities should be divided into day time and night time. It is camping after all and you can assume that there will be late night gathering.

? Prepare first-aid kit

This is not to be pessimistic idea that something will happen. It is just anticipating whatever lies ahead. Even boy scouts have that motto: "Be prepared always." It is a common thinking to be prepared at all times because things happen with own pace and time. You just have to keep everything ready and not lag behind. This is because simple ignorance is never a reason not to be prepared.

? Have as much groceries you can muster

The more food available, the happier the atmosphere the camping would be. If possible do away with the kind of food you normally eat in the city. Choose various foods as possible, after all pasta is not suitable for camps.

? Your participants should be as enthusiastic about the camp as you are.

You can't make the camp a success if one or two people on your list are not as adventurous or not as excited as you to go on camping. They will just be feeling bored of the whole idea if they don't belong in the field. Moreover, they would be giving you negative energy. It is OK that you will invite all you know on the list but if they refuse, don't ask again because then you would know who is in and who is not.

To make the camp a success, it entirely depends on your ability to handle things and take control of the situation whatever they may be. It would also entirely depend on your ability to turn the table about making the situation from worst to better. Enjoy and have fun the rest of the day.
