Health Tip: Prepare for a Camping Trip

(HealthDay News) -- Preparing for your next camping trip should include focusing on what to pack. This bit of preparation should lead to a less stressful, more enjoyable experience for everyone.

The Nemours Foundation suggests bringing these camping essentials:

  • A map of the camping area, along with a compass.
  • A flashlight with a spare set of batteries, a pocketknife and a folding saw.
  • Sufficient food, including plenty of clean drinking water.
  • Insect repellent, sunscreen and a pair of sunglasses for each camper.
  • A firestarter or candle, and a pack of matches inside a waterproof container.
