Safe outdoor recreation

Camping is an opportunity to combine rest from everyday work and feel the unity with nature. For someone, this is fishing or hunting, for someone, a trip to the forest for mushrooms and berries, and for someone, nothing else is needed, except how to have a picnic in the fresh air in the circle of loved ones.

Outdoor activities and safety

Outdoor activities are good for human health in every sense. This is a change of scenery after working days. And raising the emotional tone. And improving the general condition of the body. All this is possible, but only if safety rules are observed. After all, nature can be deceiving.

Camping, or ecotourism, is now quite common. Someone chooses this type of recreation because they cannot imagine their life without fishing, hunting, the starry sky overhead, and someone, for financial reasons. In any case, outdoor recreation is the same vacation, with only its own nuances.

Safety rules during outdoor recreation

In order to avoid unpleasant memories of outdoor activities, you should adhere to certain rules:

  • When resting near the habitat of forest animals, you need to be prepared for the fact that they are interested in newly arrived neighbors. Many of them may look very cute, but don't underestimate them. Some cute animals can arrange for you a vacation that you will remember for a long time. For example, raccoons can steal food, or throw loose trash. In addition, raccoons can cause physical injury by biting overly loving vacationers.
  • Be prepared for the presence of a large number of insects. It can be both harmless enough, but very annoying mosquitoes, and more dangerous insects. These include ticks, wasps, horseflies, ants. To avoid the consequences of meeting with them, it is necessary to correctly choose a place for setting up a picnic or setting up a tent, stock up on special means, and also conduct regular examination of yourself and loved ones for bites.
  • When hiking, you should pay special attention to making fires. Food is cooked on a fire. The fire gives warmth and light. But, a frivolous attitude to fire can lead to disastrous consequences. Therefore, you should provide yourself with the necessary amount of water within walking distance from the place of making a fire, and also not leave an open fire unattended. Especially if there are small children nearby.
  • During outdoor recreation it is impossible to predict the change of weather. Therefore, choosing the right clothes will help you avoid colds and other troubles. It is most correct to use the principle of layering during outdoor activities in clothes. After all, if it gets a little warmer, you can take off something from your clothes, and if it gets cooler, put it on.
  • Do not rely only on yourself in matters of orientation on the ground. Even if you are confident enough, the map of the area and the compass will never hurt. And it would be nice to warn some of your relatives about the place of your stay. You can read about how not to get lost in the forest in the link provided.
  • If there is a body of water nearby, do not jump into it without looking back. Even a seemingly harmless pond can be dangerous. And do not forget that bathing while intoxicated can lead to sad consequences.
  • Food brought from home should be washed with good quality and placed in special, tightly closed containers. This will save food from getting dirt or insects into it, and resting people from the arrival of forest guests attracted by the smell.
  • When resting with children, remember that you need to supervise the child. Is always. A child can eat something that is not suitable, burn himself with charcoal from the barbecue, go into the forest and get lost.

Wildlife Safety

Many people like outdoor recreation, and some people like extreme relaxation in the wild. During such a vacation, there is every chance to meet the forest owner - a bear. Wildlife does not forgive mistakes, so certain rules must be followed:

  • When going on a wild vacation, be sure to check your equipment for the essentials: matches, food, change of clothes, water supply, flashlight, compass and map of the area.
  • When meeting with wild animals, keeping calm to attract the attention of other vacationers.
  • Never leave a fire unattended.
  • When going on a "wild" vacation, try to leave your pets at home. If this is not possible, provide the animal with insect protection. And also make sure that your pet does not interfere with the rest of others.
  • Wild bodies of water are even more dangerous than ordinary ones. Any taiga rivulet is capable of dragging a careless tourist to the bottom.
  • Do not forget the rules of first aid, have the necessary medical minimum with you.

Family vacation is often a trip for several days, outside the city bustle. It is supposed to have fun sitting around the fire with a guitar, barbecue cooking, swimming in forest ponds. But nature is unpredictable. Changes in weather conditions, inadequate preparation of vacationers, getting injured can ruin the planned vacation. Correct behavior, competent preparation and equipment will help make the rest of you and your child full and unforgettable.
