camping safety tips


  • When camping build a fire pit.  Use rocks as outer walls.  Never use wood, if the wood you used rolls and it's on fire, you could set the woods on fire or your campsite.
  • When camping always watch the campfire, make sure you don't let it get out of hand.
  • Never play in the campfire.
  • Never throw empty bottles or metal cans in a campfire.  The contents could explode.  Also it is considered littering.
  • Always make sure your insect repellent candles and lamps are put out before you go to sleep at night.
