Cool Camping

Find your camping spot in a shade of a tree or any natural structure to avoid your tent turn into a hot oven. Bring along shade dome or gazebo. They come with roll-up windows and fly screens and become a heavenly retreat during rain or extreme heat. Still, do not forget to bring a tent, which is best to stock your gear and supplies and escape the heat of the day.

You can also bring reflective sunshades to avoid direct sunlight in and around your camping area and social zone. Also, don’t forget to disassemble your tent during the day to prevent the absorption of heat by tent fabrics, even if it may take extra time to reset in the evening. Other vital ideas to stay cool is to choose a mesh tent to make use of the breeze and carry a portable fan.

Camping Site

Don’t set your shop near water bodies, fragile tree or dried branches, rockfall zones, an unknown variety of bushes, smog prone areas, and so on. Though water bodies are cooler zone, summer bring in extra flies and bugs near them. Find out the pros and cons before pitching the tent. Avoid rude, late-night wake-up call by staying away from rockfall zone or fragile dead branches.

Clothing

Pack lightweight and breathable clothing. While cotton is good, they retain heat and hold sweat of the day. Therefore, buy synthetic clothing meant for summer hiking that allows your body to breathe. Pick white or light-colored clothing and choose loose-fitting ones. Choose a wide-brim hat instead of baseball caps for a wider shade. A bandanna soaked in water for head or neck will be a refreshing cool comfort.

Medicine

You may survive without cloth or tent but not without fully stocked first aid kit unless you are master of using plant and herbs. Also, spend time to know how to use them before you venture out of civilization Firstly, pack anti-venom kit, anti-septic and anti-bacterial ointment or wipes, medical disinfectants, hand sanitizer, band-aids, tablets (for pain, flu, stomach disorder, etc.) and spare, clean water. Add sunscreen lotions, lip balm, ice and heat pack, etc. later. Before packing all these, first, pack your medication if you have been on any.
