Tent:

Its not a problem until you find out that there is a leakage in your tent or the tent is just not the perfect one for you. That’s when your whole camping idea goes for a toss.

It is important to select a right tent for yourself. Before purchasing or reusing them make a through check of the tent and that it should meets all your needs. You can use foam floor tiles for a softer, more comfortable tent floors.

Baggage:

You can never be sure of the things you might be needing when you go for camping. But that does not mean you carry anything and everything thinking just in case you might need them. Don’t waste too much room with unnecessary gadgets, clothes and gear. Bringing too much stuff can be a problem.

Make a list of all the important things you might be needing. If you’re traveling with your family, make a rule:everyone can bring one bag, and it has to fit comfortably in their corner of the tent.

Food:

When it comes to food, most of you forget that you are going for camping and not on a mars mission and those who know it go wrong in packing the food. Carrying unnecessary food items can only add on to the problems.

Make sure you only take those items that is liked by everyone and that can be easily cooked in an environment like that. Choosing single-single items for each one of them is definitely not a good idea. Vacuum seal your food before leaving. Tic-tac boxes are great for storing spices and other ingredients. Do not forget popcorn.

Safety:

This is something that should not be neglected at any cost. Despite being very careful, sometimes we may miss out to look into some of the safety measures.

But not to worry, use these ideas in emergencies or otherwise: For emergency first aid, you can wrap a sprained or broken arm in toilet paper and duct tape until you can seek professional medical attention. For lighting, point a head lamp into a jug of water for an instant lantern or paint the inside of a jar with non-toxic glow-in-the-dark paint to make it fancy.

Games:

Gaming is a crucial part of any camping. And carrying a wrong game along can be a pain in the a**, especially when you’re going with your kids and they find out about it.

Carry only one or two and light weighted games like UNO cards, Scrabble or chess. Along with these, carry all the necessary items that you will need for camp games. Keep the kids busy with a scavenger hunt. Use an acorn cap as a whistle if you get lost. Bring some paint markers and let them paint rocks they find on the trip. And while you’re kids are busy with their games, you can use the spare time to play online bingo here on GameVillage site.

Keep these little but important things in mind and enjoy camping.
