The Benefits of Nature and Camping for Kids

In the spirit of Family Day, we reflect on fun and excitement in camping and the benefits of taking our kids on these memorable adventures that have lasting effects.

Nature is a pleasing force for humans of all ages and demographics, and the health benefits are numerous!

🏕️ Immune system boost

🏕️ Lowered blood pressure

🏕️ Reduces stress

🏕️ Improves mood

For kids especially, the added element of exploration and sensory interactions with nature not only builds self-esteem and feelings of empowerment, but also helps tap into a robust nervous system.

Many basic survival skills can also be learned from being in nature like learning to forage for food, distinguishing edibles from poisonous or harmful plants or learning to build shelters – all while engaging in an awareness of surroundings.

Knowledge of nature helps to create a sense of empowerment within its surroundings.

Taking the time to switch gears from being in front of screens and devices also allows the mind to quiet down and tap into its natural creative aspects. When a child can hone in on their own thoughts and perceptions of the environment around them, they can learn to thrive in environments outside of technology.

Nature also helps family members and friends in connecting, and acts as a catalyst for life-long connections. Through spending time in nature, a child is also more apt to learn respect for nature and the environment as they build affinity for these sacred spaces.

So, give your children the gift of nature and camping, and browse our selection of family RVs today!
