6 Reasons You Should Consider a Camping Trip this Summer


Summer is creeping up on us and that means you’ll be starting to think about your summer vacations. Will it be a beach holiday this year, a city break or an epic backpacking trip across Europe?
If none of those appeals or you are looking to holiday on a budget, then why not give camping a go? It’s inexpensive, it will bring your family together, you’ll be miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life and you’ll be reconnecting with Mother Nature.
Still not sold? Here are six reasons why you should consider a camping trip this summer
You’ll be living off the grid
Forgetting about your coffee maker, your iPad and whether you’ve replied to that email from Steve from accounts can help us relax and unwind away from the pressures of modern life. Camping takes us off the grid, out of reach and away from the hurly burly of the everyday.

You can learn new outdoor skills
Camping requires so many skills that we might not otherwise get the chance to develop with urban living. Can you pitch a tent? Light a fire? Fish for your dinner? You might find those basics come in handy out in the wild. For the more adventurous, there is navigating by the stars, rock climbing or hunting for your own dinner. Take a look at Bestriflescopereview.Com if you are planning on going hunting.

It’s inexpensive
Once you’ve purchased camping equipment such as a tent, sleeping bag and any food and drinks you want to take with you, it becomes one of the least expensive vacations you can have. You can do a camping trip foraround $800 all in – Mother Nature costs you nothing to enjoy.

It brings your family together
There is no age limit on who can go camping. Old or young love sitting around the camp fire, singing songs and watching the sun go down. In a day and age where families tend to be less close than they were, a camping vacation can bring everybody back together – there will be nothing but you, your family and the great outdoors.

You’ll get plenty of exercise
Camping is a great way to get exercise. The average hikeburns 500 calories and you can’t go camping without at least one hike. You’ll probably end up backpacking, swimming, kayaking and playing games as well.  All that time moving outside in the fresh air is the perfect way to get some much-needed exercise into you and your family.

You’ll see parts of the world you never knew existed
Camping gives us a reason to visit parts of the world we never thought we would. While a city break to somewhere like New York or Seattle involves going and visiting the Empire State Building or the Space Needle, when you are camping you are free to create your own unique journey and see sights and experiences sounds that none of your friends would. It can be a truly unique experience which creates memories to last a lifetime.

My daughter and her family love to camp during the spring and fall. I've never been much of a camper but you've given some great reasons to give it a try again.

We don't need any reasons to go camping. I do like all the reasons you gave. Love to go camping and being outdoors.

My daughter wants to camp. I'm more of a glamping person. I need a real bed and a proper meal in order to stay happy. I also prefer to not live off the grid.

Franc said...

Camping can really give you a better appreciation of nature. You get to be out of the grid and have a great time.

Jeanette said...

We usually go camping in the spring and in the fall. I love it because it gets us disconnected from the world and just get to know each other again. It is so fun to go camping.

Joanna Brittain said...

I have a love hate relationship with camping. Due to my severe allergies to the greater outdoors, I can only camp during the fall or winter months, and only in an RV.

Melissa Chapman said...

We were never the camping types but it does look like a fun way to spend time in the woods. If we had the equipment it would be a great idea.

Jenn said...

We love to camp and plan a week with family every year. We also enjoy camping solo, it's a great way to get away from home and relax.

Heather said...

We've got three camping trips booked this summer! We simply cannot wait to get out in nature, do some fishing and paddle boarding and enjoy God's green earth!

Lisa said...

My husband would like to start camping every year when our girls get a little older. I'm not so into it.. I am trying to wrap my head around days filled with mosquitos and heat.

The Super Mom Life said...

I can't wait to take my girls camping. I know they are going to love it!

Glam Karen said...

I think camping is awesome. My father used to take me and my siblings camping every summer when we were younger and it was quite a learning experience! It's really one of the best things to do when the weather permits.

Camping is not really my thing but what we love is hitting the road with an RV / Mobile home. Last year we did a massive tour through Hungary to Budapest then Croatia and Italy to Florence and Austria - was amazing. Great way to vacation.

We camp every summer. However, for us that means renting a house near a campground where the rest of our family is staying in their RVs.

Amy said...

We haven't gone camping in many years... Every summer though, we do stay in our camper at the family cottage property...

Sara Welch said...

I always have a blast camping. That is one of my favorite activities!

Come to think of it, I haven't taken the kids camping yet. Such a great idea to take them to roughing it sometime.
