While camping is an enjoyable activity, there are many tips to ensure your safety during a fun-filled weekend or adventurous week-long trip. Check out the following guide to learn more about how to make the most of your next campaign trip by keeping everyone safe and comfortable.
Important Reminder: While spending time in the outdoors, please practice sustainability and remember to Leave No Trace. This means taking all your rubbish away, being respectful of wildlife, and following local guidelines.
1. Stay Up-to-Date With the Weather
Make sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast before your trip. As we all know, weather can change within the hour, which means it’s essential to pack for inclement weather such as rain, snow, and high heat and humidity. Please check the waterproofing quality of the provided tents, to ensure u don’t get wet at night if it rains. camping at dharamshala
2. Practice Campfire Safety
Fires within your campground site should be at least 15 feet from tent walls, shrubs and trees. It’s important to keep your fire small and contained in a designated area like a fire pit. You should also never leave a fire unattended. Always keep a water bucket nearby and put the fire out before leaving or going to sleep — making sure to drown all the embers, not just the red ones.
3. Use Insect Protection
To protect yourself from mosquitos, ticks and other insects, use insect repellent that doesn’t dissolve easily in water. Make sure you check for ticks daily, especially in unsuspecting areas of your body. It’s also recommended to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when hiking to avoid direct contact with insects. After a hike or any outdoor activity, place your clothes in the dryer for at least 10 min on high heat to kill any ticks that may have come home on your clothing.
4. Be Aware of Allergies
Packing an EpiPen or other medications for your known allergies is a smart way to prepare for any unexpected encounters. You should also keep a first aid kit handy and watch for dizziness, labored breathing and swelling around bites or places where plants or insects may have been in contact with your skin. camping in himachal
5. Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated doesn’t mean drinking when you’re thirsty — it means drinking water regularly throughout the day, even if you don’t think you’re thirsty. Ask for an emergency first Aid box and some bottled water. If you feel thirsty, chances are you’re already dehydrated
