ESSENTIAL ACTIVITIES TO ENJOY DURING A CAMPING TRIP
There are many things you can do to enjoy your next camping trip. Camping can be lots of fun if you just think outside the box. It’s a great time to enjoy the company of friends, family and also an opportunity to try new things. Camping allows you a quick escape from the busy rigmarole of the city life. Here are a few things that are easy to enjoy.
Gathering around a campfire is a classic. Dry dead logs and branches are good for campfires but be cautious of the fire. You can play games, sing or play storytelling games to make it more exciting. Remember to put the fire out before sleeping to avoid any mishaps.
Stargazing is another fun activity to do while camping. You’ll stare up at the sky and look for stars or constellation, a simple thing to do but very enthralling. Just make sure that your campground doesn’t have light pollution since it will be harder to see stars in the night sky.
There are many outdoor camping games to enjoy with groups. You can play frisbee, cricket ball, tag and races. These are also a great way to exercise and stay physically fit.
You must try water sports especially if you’re near an estuary, a creek, a lake or if you’re camping by the beach. There’s surfing, canoeing, kayaking or paddleboarding. You must bring the right gear with you and be mindful of the weather, current and tides for your safety.
If you haven’t tried fishing before, well this is the chance for you to try this. Fishing guides are available throughout OnDECK and you can always ask someone you know who loves fishing to guide you. Don’t forget to pack your rod and reel together with your other tackle.
It’s priceless to hear the humming of the birds when you wake up. You can identify birds with a mobile app and find out what birds there are around you. You can do it during early mornings and late afternoons. It’s the time when birds are visible and active.
A night walk is an exciting activity especially during full or half moon. Choose an easy path or trail to follow.
There are a lot of things you can enjoy while camping, but the most important thing of all is to have fun. You are out there to escape the reality of everyday life, enjoy while it lasts.
