Camp­ing is such fun, and great for bond­ing, too.

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:

Zahraa Raz­nan, 10, shares her un­usual camp­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in the Ara­bian desert.

“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!”
