Our family loves to camp! We try to get out camping as much as possible in the summer. Plus, it’s enjoyable to watch as our girls find every single thing exciting as we camp — from building dirt mounds to watching the insects. As I was looking up camping tips for our family, I thought many of you might find these tips interesting as well. Below are 14 Camping Tips that would come in handy while camping.
How to Keep Food Dry While Camping – After a few days of camping, the liquid in the cooler always starts to soak into the food. Here’s a great idea to use cooling racks to keep food dry while camping.
Freeze Water in Gallon Milk Jugs – We have started to do this more when camping. Wash out gallon milk jugs, then freeze water in them and use as ice blocks to keep food cold in the cooler.
DIY Fire Starter – Use these three ingredients to make your own DIY Fire Starter.
Use Sage as a Bug Repellent – Place a bundle of sage, citronella leaves, or cedar bark in your campfire to keep mosquitoes and other bugs away. If you can’t find a bundle of sage at your grocery store, Amazon sells sage bundles.
Easy DIY Wasp Trap – The wasps seem to find us every time we begin eating, so this is a great tip. Use an empty jar, orange juice, and jam to make a wasp trap.
Eggs in a Mason Jar – My egg carton always comes back from camping soggy and soaked through with water, so I’m loving this idea. Place eggs in a jar for easy travel. You don’t have to worry about them breaking, and you just pour them out as needed. Just recently, my husband purchased this plastic egg holder for me, which has been extremely nice for camping.
