It’s basically the most fun thing you and your friends could ever do.

1. Because where else can you wear a sleeping bag like a mummy??

2. Or tell ghost stories around a crackling fire?

3. Which, by the way, almost always leads to this.

Also known as sweet, gooey love.

1. You already LOVE swimming. 2. You really, really love trampolines. The only way you can do both is by camping.

6. And let’s not even get started on the waterfalls, because they are plentiful.

And so much fun.

7. Waterfalls aren’t your thing, though? How about beach camping…

…where you can, you know, read.

8. Or, of course, stretch out in a hammock.

Essentially, a camping requirement.

9. And where you can also sit in this giant beach chair.

Never knew you needed one of these, did you?

(But perhaps, this is more your speed.)

How convenient!

10. So get ready to spend some sweet time with nature.
