5 Reasons Why Camping Makes You Happy
Here are a few reasons why camping makes us happy:
- Camping is a great way to bond and spend quality time with friends and family. You can connect with each other through games and activities like fishing and hiking or use the campfire to make s’mores and relax. There are ample opportunities to make the most of your camping trip!
- Camping can be a cheap (sometimes even free) activity! You can camp in your backyard or find a free camping spot near you from a number of sources. Check out some great places to pick your next locale on our Great American Campout site.
- Is trying something new on your bucket list? Camping is a great way to get that checked off. You can even try different ways to camp, like a yurt, cabin or tree house.
Capture the best camping moments with #campies! You can use your phones and tablets while still enjoying the great outdoors by snapping a selfie as you venture in the woods or hang out by the campfire!
- Spot wildlife! One of the best reasons to get outdoors and camp is to see all the wildlife around you.
