Everything we do requires the proper manners. Weather you 're an experienced camper or planning you first camping trip, be sure you mind your manners at the campground. When you are camping you are usually in a camp group where there are plenty of other people to think about. When ever you are in an area that has other people about you need to consider the other peoples needs and feelings. You should never do anything that might bother anyone. When you are camping you should respect the other camper 's rights. Never walk across another camper 's camp site. Always walk around other people 's campsites. You would not want people walking through your campsite. Always obey the campground 's quiet hours. Always be quieter then you think you should be. Noise carries well so you may think you are being quiet but you just might be disturbing other campers. Especially at night and in the morning keep the noise down. Think about the noise something can make like the slam of a car door. And try to be quiet when you do it. Always keep your campsite neat for the next person who uses it. Pick up everything you have at your campsite including any garbage you have in the fire ring. When a new camper comes to your site they do not want to see your garbage in the fire ring. If you bring it in take it out. If you have a pet that you bring with you keep it contained and clean up after your pet. Never leave your pet unattended. Your pet is in an unfamiliar place and it is easy for a pet to
The sparks fly in the air, there are marshmallows in your hair, and you’re with your favorite people in the world. This is called the best place on earth, for me at least. I enjoy camping so very much, you meet new people, experience different things, make new memories, and have a blast. You also see new sights, smell some things, and always wake up to the birds singing and not the bustling streets of the city. Camping is my go to activity.
Encourage correct manners to be used by ‘treating others in a way that you expect to be treated’. Always allow the children to hear “please” and “thank you” being used which will show continued respect between all children and other adults.
The men here hardly bath, and with 12 men in one small hut, it can get terribly nauseating. It reaks in all the huts in the camp. I, myself, have not bathed in about one month. Not to mention, our huts have terrible ventilation, that causes our huts to fill with smoke, making it hard to breath. It is not good when your own surgeons cannot see because of the smoke. We cannot open the door, for the weather outside is merciless and freezing. The terribly cold weather makes it especially hard, since about 20% of us have no shoes. Among us soldiers is also men who will assault you. It has happened to me on more than one occasion. Luckily General George Washington can break up fights easily. The water here is not good and probably causes many of the diseases that have taken some of my friends’
Along with my happy attitude, I will put the best of my cooking abilities to work. I hope to take to camp the things that I learned from a Consumer Science class, including nutrition, preparation, and hygienic conduct. A clean space is key when preparing a meal, so dishes will be squeaky clean, as well as the counters
Safety is a huge factor in this volunteering, because if we are not prepared we could injure our hands, back, eyes, or worst case scenario be bitten by a rattlesnake. This group needs safety equipment so my team and I are bringing gloves, eye protection, and band aids. Our group of three has also brought a heaps amount of water along with hats, lunch, snacks, and sunscreen. I will have a backpack containing water just in case we need it when we are doing our jobs.
2. Travel to the campgrounds and take photos of scene, anything related to the scene (signs, fencing, view into pool, etc) and surrounding area.
Have you ever went camping with friends or family and admired the welcoming campfires that were built? Roasting marshmallows, sharing stories, or just sitting and absorbing the nature around you are just a few of the many enjoyable activities that can be done with a bonfire! However, what may look like a simple set-up might be more complex than one would assume. In fact, there are several steps a person should follow when constructing a campfire. Practicing these instructions can not only lead to a more successful, thriving bonfire, but can also guide you to becoming more safe and aware. When my dad taught me how to build a fire, it was an overall bonding experience. He was patient with me through the many failed attempts and constantly reminded me that safety was the most important factor. The skills that I learned from him will continue to come in handy any time my friends or family want to gather around a campfire.
You don't need a bunch of fancy equipment to go camping, although it doesn't hurt to bring it if you have it! There are a few things, however, that you might miss on your camping trip, if you forget them at home. Water- I've seen a lot of people remember the soda, alcohol and beer, but forget to bring water. While there is nothing wrong with the other beverages, they won't keep you hydrated. Drinkable water is a must, especially in hot summer months. And keep in mind that you will want water for washing hands and dishes, too. Make sure you bring enough for all! Insect Repellant- The best camping trip can quickly turn sour when the mosquitoes come out. What type of insect repellant you buy is up to your discretion, but when camping, I personally prefer to bring something that is sweat resistant, and designed for deep woods situations. Sunscreen- Unlike a day at the beach, where sunscreen is usually the first thing we pack, people sometimes forget to grab the sunscreen when heading out to the woods. However, the sun still shines at the campground, if you're lucky, and if you plan to be out on the water at all, you're going to want that sunscreen. Baby Wipes- Some camp sites have running water available, or perhaps you're camping in an RV with hookups for water. But either way, baby wipes offer a quick easy way to clean up. They are great for washing hands and faces, and small messes. Entertainment-
When I was working at The Steam Project I had to be a counselor of around 10 kids. One of the most difficult things about being a summer camp counselor is overseeing kids that do not listen or are rude to their fellow campers. These kids break the chemistry of the group, as a counselor I had to take action to subside these rowdy kids. At some points during the camp one kid would get insulted by another and they will start crying as a result. To try and take care of the situation my fellow counselor and I would separate the two kids apart and talk to them individually. Firstly we try and calm down the first camper as it is harder to maintain a distressed camper. After that we start a conversation with the guilty camper; we try and decide on

In order to protect both humans and animals, the park rangers ensure tourists understand and follow the necessary safety precautions. To prevent animals from invading campgrounds, it is advised that campers store their food at least 5 metres above the ground, where animals cannot access it. It is of paramount importance that campers dispose of any rubbish in the bear-proof bins provided in the camp. Food odours attract bears and must be kept away from the camp. Although extremely rare, attacks have occurred, inflicting serious injury and death. If you do come into contact with dangerous wildlife, park rangers recommend the following actions: If you see a bear, stay at least 45 metres away from it. If a bear approaches you, you mustn’t play

This means to respect others as you would want them to respect you. If you ask someone for help and they concur, do not steal the credit for their work. On the other hand, if what they helped you with is unintentionally wrong, do not blame them or yell at them, as they were only trying to help you out. Never cut someone else down in front of others, yell at them or point out their bad qualities.
