Sometimes it is necessary to disconnect from the world and live new experiences. In this sense, camping is an excellent option to relax surrounded by nature. This is an activity that you can do alone or with friends at any time.
To camp, you need to be prepared, especially if you have never done it before. To help you with this we want to give you some basic tips that you should follow. Let's get started!
Choose the right place
When setting up your camp you should look for a safe place. Make sure you get a flat place and remove any stones or branches that could hinder your stay. Try to find a place under trees that will protect you from the water in case of rain.
Be careful with the animals!
Before camping, look for information about the fauna that exists in the area you are going to and take precautions. Use repellent to avoid mosquito bites. On the other hand, lighting a fire can drive away wild animals that live in the area where you are camping.
Take the necessary material for camping
To set up your camp, the basics are to bring a tent and accessories such as camping chairs, a small table, and a tarp that is placed on top of the camp to protect you from rain, snow, or some branches.
Wear the right clothes
Try to wear the right clothes throughout your adventure: during the day and on the trails, choose light and comfortable clothes that allow you to stay cool; during the night, we recommend wearing thermal clothing that keeps you warm.
Plan your food and water rations
What food should you take to camp? The first rule is not to go fair or limited; it will always be better to pack a little more in case you need it, want to share, or decide to stay a few extra days. If you plan to cook at camp, don't forget pots, ladles, plates, and glasses.
Protect and care for the environment
When you leave, avoid leaving any kind of trace or garbage residue, the whole idea of going camping for the first time is about leaving the place as you found it and even better. Remember that the environment, the flora, and the fauna of the place are your hosts and you must respect them.
