You Should Go on A Camping Trip

Camping isn’t an adventure that many people take nowadays. You’re away from technology, there are bugs, and you have to sleep and use the bathroom outside? To be honest, some of those are part of the reasons why you, your friends, and your family should give camping a shot! Experience the true joy, peace, and excitement that camping brings.

Unplug

Camping gives you a rare opportunity to step away from our lives of living inside a screen. You start to realize that everything that matters is right in front you and those Instagram likes don’t seem so important. Without these distractions, you’re able to fully take in the scenery around you and reconnect with nature.

Campfires and Food

Ahhh campfires…so warm and cozy. There is nothing more pleasing than sitting around a crackling fire, wrapped in a blanket. In my experience, the campfire is where you get to have real conversations and bond with the people around you. It’s almost a little magical…and romantic if you’re with the right person (winky face).

Oh, and did I mention a campfire classic is s’mores? In fact, it’s impossible to have a quality trip without them. In addition to this, cooking over a fire makes everything taste better. It may be the smoky flavor or because you’re in the wilderness and any food sounds amazing.

Stars

If you live in a city, you probably can’t see many of these in your sky. One of the most incredible parts of camping is the stars. Looking up to the sky on my first camping trip I couldn’t believe my eyes, it was as if I had entered another world. It’s a beauty that you have to experience for yourself to fully appreciate.

Affordable

To have a fun time with family and friends it shouldn’t have to cost a fortune! With camping, there’s no expensive hotel room or dinners out to eat. You can treat the whole fam to a weekend of fun without overspending. All you need it a tent and food you already have in your home!

Exercise

One of the great parts of camping is getting to exercise without it feeling like exercise. There are so many activities to do from hiking, climbing, kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, swimming, and exploring!
