The summer is ideal for camping, and it’s the time when many are prepping their tents and readying their portable grill. Camping is a fun way to get family and friends together to enjoy the outdoors, and the light nights and warm weather offers the perfect opportunity to do just that. So that your family and friends keep safe during your trip, whether local or on the road, check out these camping safety tips for summer:
Get vaccinated – Vaccinations can help to protect against certain diseases and conditions while camping. Check with your doctor or nurse to see if you’ve had all of the recommended vaccines. Typically, tetanus, pertussis, meningitis, and hepatitis A are recommended.
Prepare food and water – Bring safe and healthy foods along on your camping trip! Contaminated food or water can increase the risk of developing certain infectious diseases caused by germs.
Be shady – Protection from ultraviolet (UV) radiation is important all year long. Even on hazy and cloudy days, the UV rays can reach you! Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15, and always reapply after you’ve been swimming. Seek shade, especially at midday, when the sun’s rays are strongest.
Avoid wild animals and protect family pets – Avoid touching, feeding, or getting close to wild animals. Enjoy watching them from a safe distance in their natural surroundings, and never leave litter behind that they can ingest. Make sure family pets are vaccinated, check for ticks, and always supply them with enough food, water, and shelter!
