Weather

Always plan for different kinds of weather while camping. Nothing ruins a camping trip like a downpour of rain if you’re unprepared. 

Pack light rain gear to wear over your clothes; they will fit easily in your backpack.

To enjoy the time of a downpour when you’re at camp, make sure to pack some easy card games or board games or even a good book. Sometimes just sitting, relaxing and listening to rain is good for the soul.
