Staying in a Tent
When you go camping, be prepared to care for any cuts, scrapes, and scratches by bringing a well-stocked first-aid kit, your first-aid manual, and all the comforts that you desire. Roughing it usually means campfires, so be sure to bring along some saline solution to wash irritated eyes if you get ashes or cinders in them while sitting too close to the fire.
Cotton swabs are great for applying lotion to bug bites, rashes, and scratches, and tweezers are a must for removing splinters and thorns. An aloe-vera solution for skin irritations, lip balm for the lips, zinc oxide for sun and skin protection, burn cream, a flashlight with spare batteries, a whistle for each camper, sanitary napkins to control bleeding, and if needed, a snakebite kit, are all must-have camping first-aid items.
A good tent should have a built-in sheet underneath to prevent cold (and insects) from getting inside, and another separate sheet to put underneath the tent. You should also bring all the appropriate clothing and gear you need to stay warm and safe.
In addition, while enjoying camping and other outdoor activities, it's critical to drink at least two quarts of water a day, or at least one quart of water for every 50 pounds of body weight, and more with any vigorous activity to avoid dehydration. Avoid dehydrating high-protein foods and caffeinated beverages. If you notice your urine is becoming a darker yellow, you also need to increase fluid intake.
