Summer Camping Safety Trips

Packing up the car or truck with all of the materials to head out to camping is just part of the puzzle when it comes to having an enjoyable weekend in the great outdoors. Summer camping safety tips should be something that you discuss with anyone going on the camping trip.

In most cases, you can prevent serious camping injuries by educating everyone going on the trip about the potential dangers long before you depart. This is very important if you’re going on a camping trip with children, who may be excited about the trip but unfamiliar with the risks or dangers present. Having a meeting before leaving can help to ensure everyone is on the same page.

If you’re an adventurous person who likes to enjoy the great outdoors of British Columbia, then it is important to ensure that your camping experience is a safe one and a positive one.

Practice Your Safety Steps

Walk everyone on the trip through the safety routines that need to be followed before any camping activities, whether it’s safely starting a fire or entering a lake or other water area. In the excitement of the moment, people may forget these routines and expose themselves to greater risks, so practicing in advance can help to reinforce the importance of proper safety.

This includes walking through everything regarding the food preparation and storage, too. Wildlife often know camping areas and will be close by, so leaving food out unprotected could lead to unwelcome visitors in your camp at night. All routines should be followed throughout the duration of your camping trip in order to keep the chances of a wildlife entry and all injuries to a minimum.

Stay Safe When Swimming

Remember that if you intend to engage in any water activities on your camping trip, your life jacket should be fitted appropriately and should be in line with your individual size.

Whether you’re out swimming in a lake or taking a kayaking or canoe trip, everyone should be comfortable with their swimming skills and you should never venture beyond your individual comfort level.

Currents and water can change very quickly. One of the most common causes of injuries and pain over the summer months is a sunburn. Beware of the hot heat and always keep sunscreen on you so that you can apply it regularly. Sunscreen should be applied at least 30 minutes before heading out into the water. Another common injury over the summer months has to do with hydration. The first signs of hydration typically include being extremely thirsty, feeling hungry or light headed.

 

Play it Extra Safe with Fires

Make sure that your campfire is built responsibly as well. One of the most fun aspects of camping is preparing a fire and enjoying a meal around it, but fire is always dangerous and could cause injuries if someone falls in or if the fire spreads outside of the area where it’s lit. Take your time when building a fire and appoint someone to keep an eye on it at all times.

A fire should never be left unattended and you should always extinguish it fully in order to decrease the chances of a wildfire.

Advising children about the risks associated with fire injuries can help reinforce the importance of following the rules. Always ensure that you have the GPS, a compass, a whistle, and a cellphone with you if you get lost. Hiking or camping out in the wilderness can be an enjoyable experience but it is always one that should be done with safety as the most important factor. Enjoy your summer camping months.
