CAMPING SAFETY TIPS
CHOOSE THE RIGHT SHELTER AND SITE
If you decide to stay in a cabin, you will be provided full beds. However, if you choose to sleep in a tent, you are required to bring a sleeping bag.
STAY UP-TO-DATE WITH THE WEATHER
Make sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast before your trip. As we all know, weather can change within an hour so it's important to pack for inclement weather such as rain and high heat and humidity.
PACK AND STORE FOOD SAFELY
It is recommended to pack your food in tight, waterproof containers and store them in an insulated cooler. Wash your hands and make sure you're following proper food safety practices.
PRACTICE CAMPFIRE SAFETY
It’s important to keep your fire small and in a fire pit. You should also never leave a fire unattended. Always put the fire out before leaving or going to sleep — making sure to drown all the embers, not just the red ones.
USE INSECT PROTECTION
To protect yourself from mosquitoes, ticks and other insects, use insect repellent that doesn’t dissolve easily in water. It’s also recommended to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when hiking to avoid direct contact with insects.
PROTECT FROM THE SUN AND STAY HIDRATED
It is recommended using a sunscreen product to protect your skin from the sun. Also, you should be drinking water regularly throughout the day, even if you don't think you're thirsty.
