How To Keep Warm In Your Tent

Couple tent camping in the wilderness

Anytime you leave home for another sanctuary whether it’s a wilderness or a luxurious hotel, I bet you will never feel the same level of comfort. More especially when your intended destination is a deserted cold forest. It is expected that the camping site will lack some of those amenities in your real home that can keep you warm whenever the atmosphere becomes so cold and unbearable. All you may have is just your lamp and your camping arsenal to set up a temporary sanctuary.

Thus, there is every tendency that you will have a “winter war” if you don’t keep the surrounding cold in check.

The Art of Being a Good Camp Counselor

Being a good camo counselor

I describe being a good camp counselor as an art form.  Just imagine a master painter and all his many splendid works of art.  He has his unique style ad methods that he uses with all his paintings, yet all his paintings are different.  He approaches different canvasses with the same tools but a different plan and a different finished product for each work of art.

If you want to know how to be a good camp counselor, you have to think of it as an art form too.  Compare the painter and his many works of art to a camp counselor and the many youth that he or she impacted.  The camp counselor has the same methods and style with every kid or teen he teaches, but he approaches each kid differently.  He also has different ideas and plans for each kid.
