Benefits of Camping

You may find it hard to believe, but camping really does provide a number of benefits for everyone to learn, experience, and enjoy while spending time in the great outdoors.

One major benefit is that camping lowers stress levels. When you’re camping, there is no schedule to keep and there are no burdensome daily tasks competing for your attention. Being outside also provides you with fresh air.  You don’t realize how much of the fresh air you miss when you are stuck inside at work or doing chores.  When camping outdoors, you get to experience the wondrous scents of the outdoors like the smell of dinner cooking over an open fire.

One of the most important aspects of camping is how it helps you build and strengthen relationships. When you go camping with friends or family, you get a chance to talk and visit without distraction the distractions of phones, televisions, computers and other electronics.

Camping also give you the opportunity to build you relationship with nature.  When you’re camping, you encounter interesting plants and animals and can see how bright the stars are away from the bright lights of the big city.

Camping is also physically rewarding. Setting up tents, gathering firewood, and going for hikes are all great for your physical health. Many people lead sedentary lives that do not promote physical fitness, but when you go camping, you can’t help but engage in physical activity.
