Camping safety tips

If you’re heading out on a family Camping safety tips, here are some tips to keep your kids safe. Many campgrounds are located in remote areas, so you should have a first aid kit ready to treat minor injuries or illnesses. If you’re camping in a national park, make sure there are park rangers on duty for assistance. Make sure to take along plenty of sunscreen and bug spray, too! And don’t forget to make sure you have an emergency contact list with you, too.

Pack A First Aid Kit And Follow Fire Safety Tips

Wild animals can be extremely unpredictable. Be sure to pack plenty of water to keep you hydrated. If possible, invest in a Sport Berkey or Travel Berkey water filter to ensure you always have clean water on your campsite. If you plan to swim, make sure you shower before and after. Always wear a life jacket, if you’re in a body-container. Wild animals are notorious for attacking people, so if you get too close to them, you could get hurt or even killed.

Fires are also a serious concern, and you should keep your campfire at least 15 feet from trees and shrubs. Be sure to carry a bucket of water to put out a campfire if you’re away from your site for any length of time. Also, remember to pack a first aid kit and follow fire safety tips. Moreover, make sure you follow the Leave No Trace principle: do not use fire and make sure no one can see it, even if it’s a simple smoky campfire.
