Camping is such fun, and great for bonding, too.
Sharaniya Ganesan, 9
WHEN you tell your parents about an upcoming camping trip, some of them may feel uneasy. They think it’s an outdoor activity somewhere in the woods and they worry about your safety. However, they may feel more comfortable if they know you are setting up camp in the school compound.
A recreational activity, camping allows you to be close to nature, bond with your friends or schoolmates, and sharpen your survival skills.
Some school clubs organise camping trips to encourage pupils to learn about self-reliance and teamwork.
Of course, you have to rough it out when you’re camping. No hot showers or soft mattresses, and no TV or computer games.
Let’s read what Starchild readers have to say about Camping:

“I stayed in an Arabian tent made of camel skin. It was quite cold at night; the stars shone brightly. My sisters and I flew kites in the evening as it was very windy,” she says. “My dad barbecued sausages and we made smores with marshmallows over the campfire. We had a great time!”
