10 Reasons Why Camping is Good for You
We’re not here to toot our own horn (well, maybe we are) but we know for a fact that camping is so good for you – body and soul. The health benefits of camping are many for old and young alike. When you get away from your normal routine, it allows you to see the world in a whole new light and can recharge your batteries.
When you’re ready to make the jump to a better life, come stay with us!
Here are some of the ways camping can benefit you:
- It’s a great stress reducer.
We could all use less stress in our lives, right? Leave the overloaded schedule at home. When you vacation in a resort campground, you can relax. You have nowhere to be but right there. There is nothing interrupting you and no one competing for your attention. Except maybe your kids…if you brought them. Spending time in nature is the best stress reducer there is.
- You get fresh air.
You don’t fully appreciate fresh air ‘til you experience it. The new scents of the outdoors are a welcome respite from the heaviness of city life. Not only do you get the fresh aromas of the outdoors, but you get the wondrous smell of dinner cooking on the grill.
- Camping is a relationship builder.
One of the important aspects of camping with loved ones is that it strengthens bonds. Whether you’re cooking a meal together, going on an epic hike, a day of fishing, or just sitting around the fire, these activities are perfect for bonding without distraction.
- Physical fitness.
Speaking of hiking, the physical aspects of hiking are plenty. Whether you are RVing or tent camping, there is the process of setting up camp, which is an exercise in itself. Gathering firewood, watersports, hiking…doing all of these things takes us out of the sedentary lifestyle we tend to lead at home.
- No alarm clocks.
If you have nowhere to be, why need an alarm clock? Let the sun and the chirping of birds wake you up naturally. It’s a relaxing experience everyone should have on a regular basis.
- Unplug from life.
Camping is the perfect venue for everyone to get away from their phones and their screens. In nature, there are no computers, tablets or televisions. If you’re in an RV, you may have a TV, but dare to unplug that, as well! There is so much else to do anyway. Even when the weather doesn’t cooperate, there are puzzles, games, and other fun activities to do.
- Delicious food.
You know that food just tastes better when prepared outdoors on a grill or cooking over a campfire. Take a deluxe cabin kitchen and put your cooking talents to use! And for dessert, nothing beats s’mores over an open flame. Dream big, do your research, and gather a bunch of delectable recipes before you head out.
- Connection with nature.
Dive deep and be one with Mother Nature in all her glorious forms. When you camp, you have the opportunity to mingle with wildlife and see the stars away from the bright lights of the towns and cities. There’s nothing quite like it.
- Learn new skills.
Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned camper, there’s plenty of opportunities to learn or get better at the skills of camping. Setting up a tent, tying knots, starting a fire with only wood, kindling, and a match, cooking a new meal – these are all things that aren’t done at home.
- Educational opportunities.
For kids, a camping experience can mean new learning experiences. This is one of the reasons scouting programs have been so prevalent over the last several decades. Kids can learn to fish, cook a meal, navigate a trail, start a safe fire, learn first aid, and so much more.
