Camping Carnival Scholarship (ID 3930)

Scholarship Description

Start Date:
Camping can be an extremely fun outdoor exercise, we all know that. The open skies, the long adventurous hikes, and eating marshmallows by the fire under a blanket of stars.

It’s a picture of natural perfection. But not only is camping a lot of fun, it actually also poses a lot of surprising health benefits. It forces you out of a sedentary lifestyle and engages all your muscles, strengthening them.

All of that time under the open sun gives your body all the Vitamin D it needs, leaving you with a healthy and radiant glow. Studies have also shown that regular camping reduces stress levels in individuals.

While camping is a fun activity that offers all of these great health benefits, it can also quickly turn into a nightmare if you’re not careful.

While direct sun definitely helps rejuvenate your body with Vitamin D, prolonged exposure to it can also lead to dehydration, nausea, weakness, etc.

A lot of the plants and herbs you come across could be poisonous. While some are good for foraging, some can be hazardous and some even cause skin infections upon the mildest touch.

Basically, nature can be bounteous, but it can be equally unforgiving to those who are ignorant of its ways. We want to encourage the younger generations to rediscover the joys of nature and to enjoy camping and all it has to offer in a safe and secure manner. That’s why we pride ourselves on offering much-needed information on all the essentials of camping.
