Going camping? Well, don't forget the glow sticks!

Jul 30, 2008
Glow sticks are a fun addition to your camping preparation kit. They're safe and long lasting; plus they're convenient for taking along on romantic, moonlight walks and midnight runs to the bathroom.

Okay, you've got your tent, your sleeping bag and all the camping essentials - right down to the marshmallows. Hold on, there. Don't forget to pack the glow sticks. What? Glow sticks? Why? Well, because they're fun and they're practical. That's right: practical. And they're better than flashlights or even lanterns - for a whole bunch of reasons.

For starters, glow sticks are portable and long lasting. Dependable, too. There's no knobs to fiddle with or switches to fumble with in the dark. They've got handy strings attached to make them easy to carry. And once they're activated, their powerful light lasts for hours!

They never need batteries or replacement bulbs - and you know what a pain finding the right-size bulbs for your flashlight can be! Not to mention all those batteries that wear down so quickly. And glow sticks don't require matches or starter fuel. Just bend them and shake gently to activate (the bending snaps a little glass tube within and shaking mixes the two chemicals together to cause a reaction that results in the glow)

Glow sticks come in all sorts of colors and sizes. You can get all one color so nobody argues over who's got the prettier color or you can color code each kid so you know at a glance where each of them is. Or you can mix and match.

You can even hang your glow sticks from the trees around your campsite for safety and ambience. Light up your path to the bathhouse, tie them to tree branches and watch the motion of the pretty colors as your glow sticks sway in the cool evening breezes. Plus, bears like nothing better than a pretty atmosphere while they're eating your marshmallows. Okay, we're just kidding about the bears!

And as if all that weren't enough glow sticks are waterproof! Go ahead, let your klutzy friends drop 'em into the stream on the way to the bathhouse. They still keep glowing. How cool is that? Hey, you can even toss a few glow sticks into the pool for the kiddies to chase after.

Whatever you use them for, glow sticks add a touch of safe, colorful fun to your camping trip, beach party or weekend getaway! Just be sure you've got plenty of 'em to go around, so everybody can have one.
