Sleeping in the great outdoors and getting away from it all can be a lot of fun for people who love nature and adventures. It can also be a fabulous opportunity to get involved with new activities or renew your passions from childhood. Whether you have kids or not, there are so many adventures you can have, it’s just a question of taking the plunge and embracing them. Once you’ve got the full checklist for all your camping equipment, the only thing left to do is to decide on what type of camping holiday you want to go on; here are some ideas to help you make up your mind.
1. Water activities
With so many campsites located near lakes and rivers, there are plenty of opportunities to have fun on the water as long as you follow water sport safety tips. Try your hand at kayaking, sailing, waterboarding or canoeing where you’ll not only experience the fun of the sport but have a different perspective of the nature around you. For a more mellow water-based activity, try your hand at fishing or take a boat ride to enjoy the scenic landscapes.
While hunting is a favorite activity in America, it’s vital that you understand that every state has its own rules and that you should be fully prepared before you set off on a hunting trip. That said, there are many wilderness spots where you can hunt for animals. Whether you’re a bow hunter or rifle hunter, knowing the right rangefinder to use will depend on the type of hunting trip you’re planning and how much you want to spend, so choose your hunting gear with care. Alternatively, you can use your skills in a shooting or archery range instead, especially if you have younger kids with you.
3. Activities on foot…or on wheels
Wherever you go camping the chances are you’ll find somewhere to take a hike through forestry, over mountains, and along beaches. Walking through nature can also bring an abundance of opportunities for wildlife, flora and fauna spotting which can be made into a fun activity for kids and can also teach kids about wildlife at the same time. For more physical exercise, try bike trailing or rock and tree climbing which everyone can do to enjoy.
If the weather’s not in your favor or you need to spend your evenings continuing the fun, there’s always an endless list of word games or music making to be had; even wood collecting can be turned into a fun activity, and keep the kids busy! Just remember to always be safe and have a great adventure.
