Enjoy your camping adventure by keeping these safety tips in mind.
With the summer season comes the perfect time to experience the great outdoors – and what better way to do so than camping! Whether you’re going camping with friends or family, be sure that you follow these safety tips to enjoy your adventure.
Take the right gear. Your camping gear will either make or break your camping trip. In order to have a great time, be sure to check your gear and stock the right supplies. You need a proper tent, sleeping bag, a portable stove, a lock box for food, and your needed essentials.
Plan for the weather. It’s summer so remember to take plenty of water, sunscreen and bug spray on your campout. Consider taking a portable radio for weather alerts because Texas weather, while predictable this time of year, can also change rapidly. By ensuring your tent has a rainfly, you will be better prepared for conditions, such as a summer storm.
Get to know your surroundings. Once you make the decision where you will camp, it is critical you become familiar with your surroundings. What is the fastest way out of the area in case of accident or wildfire? Does anyone else know where you will be? What type of wildlife is prevalent in the area? Knowing these ahead of time can help in an emergency.
Take a first aid kit. From Band-Aids to insect bite relief, Aloe Vera gel, and antiseptic wipes along with necessary medication, be sure you have the right supplies. It’s possible that scrapes, stings, and more will occur – so be sure you are ready.
