The Rules of Camping


As I’ve been talking about camping this week, I had to share this with you because it is sooooo cute. I first took my godson camping when he was 5 years old, and he wrote these ‘Rules of Camping’. If you’re having trouble reading it, here’s a translation:

No eating in the sleeping area.
No shoes in the sleeping area.
No leaning on the tent.
Don’t go near the fire or BBQ unless grown ups are with you.
No running off or around the tent.
No breaking the tent.
Don’t touch the sharp knives.
No hanging off the tent.
No climbing anywhere.
No eating when grown ups aren’t saying. (I’m not sure where this one came from, I’m honestly not that strict)
No going to the toilet on your own.
Don’t go to other people’s tents.
Don’t break other people’s tents.
Be careful of cars on the road.
Don’t break the glow sticks.
Don’t wake other people up.
Don’t break the sleeping bag or mat.

  1. Love it…prety much covers it for me. The one I have “enforced” always is no young ones near the fire without an adult. Fire is so dangerous, especially when help might be days away…(in the outback)

    1. The fire rule came about because I allow him to toast marshmallows on the BBQ after we’ve finished eating. I had to explain to him that, although he’s allowed to do it, it’s only under strict conditions. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be so far away from help, although we do have to be careful generally as well. My godson has a severe allergy to nuts, so if he comes into contact with any we have to get him medical help within 20 minutes. Thanks for the comment 🙂
