How about teaching camping to your child as an integral part of extreme sports? We recommend that you do not miss this opportunity to leave everyday life aside and stay alone with your child and nature. We recommend you to plan a camp as soon as possible. Camping activities that you start at the early age of your child will not only imbue nature awareness but also give him the opportunity to explore himself and his needs and set him free.
Of course, there are some important points to consider when camping with children. For example, make sure that young children do not leave their hearing distance in the camp area, and that children who are older than the eye range often remind them of this rule. Another important point is if your child is allergic to some plants or insects, find out. A reaction to your child's body at the camp site will both irritate you and it will cause your camp pleasure to be interrupted.
Do not forget to visit the environment with your child while doing camping activity, you can make your trip more effective by hiking instead of just staying in the area where you set up a tent, you can allow your child to meet new plants and animals.
Now, let us remind you a few important points about camping with 3 subheadings…

Rules for camping in the least harm to nature:
1. Take advantage of the existing trails that were used before during your walks. Do not create shortcuts and new ways.
2. Use areas where you have been camping before and always as much as possible.
3. Meet your toilet needs away from water springs, paths and camping sites.
4. Use a stove instead of a fire. Don't leave the campsite until you're sure your fire is out.
5. Do your cleaning needs by using materials that will not pollute the water resources and the camping area and do not harm the environment.
6. Avoid actions that damage or damage flowers, grass and other vegetation, rocks and surrounding tissue.
7. Do not interfere with wildlife in any way. Leave the surrounding animals alone and never feed them.
