There’s nothing like a summer camping trip. The nights are long, the days are warm, and even in England you’re likely to see a bit of sun! It can be a wonderful time of year to go camping, and we hope these tips will make it even more so.

Pack light You need the essentials, but an overpacked car will feel even hotter on a long trip. Take advantage of modern space saving items designed specifically for camping if you need them, but you don’t need every gadget going. Decide what you really need and are going to use, and stick to it.

Stay safe It’s not just us enjoying the summer, all sorts of bugs and little critters will no doubt be around too. Pack a first aid kit with this in mind. If you’re not sure what would be best, a little research in advance could be beneficial.

Make the most of the weather Good weather doesn’t last forever, especially in England. Enjoy the hot spell and get out there, enjoy the great outdoors. But don’t forget the sunscreen! 

Keep it cool  It’s important to keep cool on a hot day. Heat exhaustion or heatstroke can ruin your holiday. Take plenty of water and stay out of the sun in the hottest parts of the day if possible. If you have any food which may spoil, be extra careful as on a hot day the deterioration can be accelerated.

Make it easy You want to enjoy the long, light nights, not make it a chore. If you are more the type who appreciates relaxing in an evening, consider a pre-prepared meal, such as one of our hot pack meals. These are the ultimate in lazy camping food. No pots and pans required, it comes with everything you need to enjoy a hot meal in minutes.We hope these ideas make your trip a little more pleasant. There are so many options for summer holidays, but camping can create a special memory. We wish you the best time on your summer break this year. Enjoy your trip, wherever you go!
