Camping is described by some as “being very close to nature” and “the next thing closest to Heaven”.  It takes away the hustle and bustle of city life and a much-needed break from the monotonous state that we face daily in life. Nobody would like to miss the chance of going camping and will grab the opportunity whether it is in their schooldays, scouts or as a family. Camping also gives the opportunity of getting to know each other better and is the place where new friendship is born. Camping is joy, camping is fun, camping is adventurous, and camping is an experience to be cherished for a long time.

Some people may even believe camping is too popular! When based on the ever-increasing difficulty it is when trying to book a spot on a campsite, especially in the summer months as campsites seem to become even more crowded. Camping for some people has also become a major tradition within their families and would be considered a great choice and a much cheaper alternative to booking a holiday. Even being out a few miles into the great outdoors without cars and buildings and all that stuff can make you feel like you are in a whole different part of the world altogether!
