Pitching Your Tent
Pack foods in tight, water-proof pouches or containers. Try to keep them in a protected cooler. Wash hands and surface areas frequently. Use hand sanitizer if water is not available. Separate uncooked foods from prepared foods.
Cook foods to proper temperatures (for instance, hamburger really should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees).
Camping is a great way to get exercise. Do things such as walking, hiking, biking, or going for a swim to stay energetic during your camping trip. Make certain to carry safety equipment, including helmets, tough footwear, and life vest. Stay away from poisonous plants, like poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. Understand your limitations, and take steps to stay clear of personal injury during activities. Never ever backpack or swim on your own. Monitor kids carefully. Grownups need to get at least 3 hours a week and kids should get at least 1.5 hour a day of physical activity.
Carbon monoxide gas is odorless and colorless and can cause illness or fatality in people and family pets. Never ever use fuel-burning devices like gas stoves, heaters, torches, and charcoal grills inside a tent, camper, or other enclosed shelter. It can create harmful levels of carbon monoxide gas to build up.
As substitute heat sources to fuel-burning devices inside an enclosed tent, campers should bring appropriate bed linen and clothing and should consume extra calories and fluids during the outing to prevent hypothermia (a dangerous loss of body heat that can cause death).
