DO Give Camping Space to Other Campers
One of the essential rules in camping is to be considerate with other campers. Make sure to leave some space to other campers in case you are the first one to arrive at the campsite. This rule especially works for in a campsite with limited space, such as the summit of a mountain.
DO NOT Make Loud Noises Rather Observe Silence
When you are already in the campsite, let nature’s sound prevail. Avoid making a loud noise, especially if your group wants to stay up until midnight. During the night is when people are trying to rest to be ready for the activities on the next day. Moreover, remember that most of the people go camping to find peace and enlightenment.
DO Respect Other’s Privacy
Going camping is a great way to detox, de-stress, and even make new friends. You can invite other campers to join your group during socials. However, you should also respect their privacy and consider if the other campers do not want to mingle with your group. Moreover, do not pressure anyone to drink alcohol drinks.
DO NOT Forget Camping Essentials
Make a checklist of all the things you need to bring. By this, you won’t forget anything.
Food, water, and first-aid kit are some of the must-bring items in your backpack. You can also bring a flashlight and extra batteries in case it is already dark when you arrive at the campsite.
DO Practice the “Leave No Trace” Principle
Leave no trace or LNT principle is one of the essential things that are being practised in an outdoor activity, such as camping. Do not destroy trees or other plants just to have a space for your tent. Leave the mountain or campsite as it is. Moreover, make sure to bring an extra trash bag so you can dispose your garbage and bring with you when you leave the wilderness.
DO NOT Leave Food Unattended
Your camping space should be kept clean at all times. Avoid leaving food unattended since it will attract unwanted animal or insect encounters. Make sure to store your food in a container before you go to your next activity or go to sleep since it will ensure food safety.
