Of course, we think camping is the best thing on earth and we hope you do too but there are some people out there who may wonder what the big deal is about camping. So, we thought we’d share the benefits we see every day and maybe give you a little insight into how camping can change you, and change your whole look on life if you give it a good, solid try.
It’s not so much about taking a vacation and staying in a campground for a week or two. It’s much more about what happens while you are here. Even though we have WiFi, and campers come with lots of electronics, there still is less time spent on them than at home. And more importantly, more time is spent connecting with the people you are camping with.
We see it all the time. People begin to relax as soon as they arrive. The laughter begins and they start chiding their friends. Practical jokes start being played on each other and family meals are eaten together. Kids teach parents about a new app and grandparents teach kids an old card game. Everyone helps clean up after dinner and they all gather together around the fire at night.
It’s these simple things that change people through camping. You can stop writing appointments in your calendar and checking your watch. If you want to sit with your neighbor and talk about the first car you had in high school, you can. If you’d rather take your teen horseback riding you can do that too. That’s the best part of camping. The fact that you can spend your day the way you want and spend it with the people you want to spend it with.
If you haven’t tried it we hope you will. We would love to meet you. We have lots of suggestions for things to help you wind down or gear up – whichever suits you.
