Camping Clever

12 Jun 2018

Many of us have a tent languishing in the loft or at the back of the garage. Camping can be a really fun and cheap way to have a summer get-away. If you’re tempted to get outdoors, here’s some tips to set up your temporary home in a super easy jiffy!

Read the instructions... 

If you’re like us, it’s probably been a while since you set up that tent, so familiarise yourself with the ‘How To’, it’ll save your sanity in the long-run.

No instructions!... 

Do an Internet search. Many manufacturers’ instructions are available online.

Put up the tent at least once... 

Don’t wait until your camping trip to learn about pitching a tent! Try it in the privacy of your garden. If you don’t have a garden, visit the nearest playground or park. Here’s what to do:

Unpack your tent... 

• Spread all of the pieces on the ground. 

• Make sure you know which piece is which. 

• Read through the instructions again (really!) and make sure you have a solid understanding of the whole process. 

• Okay. Now you can begin! Follow the manufacturer’s instructions exactly, in the order they are given.

At camp... 

• Remember to bring along the instructions - and use them! 

• Arrange to arrive at your camping spot early in the day. You don’t want to be setting up a tent when you (and the kids!) are tired and hungry. You definitely don’t want to be pitching a tent in the dark. (Remember, though, life does happen - and you probably will find yourself setting up camp in the dark someday. That’s why you did all that practising at home! You now know your tent so well that you can pitch it in the dark!).
