Fourwinds Top Tips for Camping Safely in the Heat
With the heatwave we are experiencing, Fourwinds wanted to share some top tips when camping with us to help keep you safe and cool for your stay with us
We certainly all pray for sunshine when on a camping holiday but when the mercury rises there are some things we can all do to make our holiday safe and more enjoyable. Being outside when camping is one of the main things that attracts us to this style of holidaying and any sunshine that comes our way is very much welcomed at Fourwinds Leisure!
Just a few small tips for camping in the heat can go a long way in making our camping trip safe.
❌Please don’t place disposable BBQs straight onto grass or wooden objects
❌ Don’t leave glass bottle lying in the sun for long periods
✔Place BBQs on an even surfaces of bricks or paving slabs
✔ Distinguish cigarettes properly & dispose of all rubbish safely
✔If using a disposable BBQ please make sure it is cooled fully before putting in the bin
Don’t spend too much time in the midday sun ….sun stroke can be nasty
Stay hydrated with plenty of water
Don’t forget your sun cream! Use high SPF sun cream
Be super careful swimming and during water activities in the river
Wear your buoyancy aid supplied by us when you hire our canoes or kayaks
Never swim anywhere you are unfamiliar with and unsure of the currents
Looking after our Doggy Guests
✔Ensure they have plenty of shade and drinking water, particularly when taking them for a walk
❌ Never leave them locked inside a hot tent, and NEVER leave them in a hot car, even for a few minutes as this could prove fatal
Keeping Food & Drinks Cool
Bring a good cool box with ice in it and freezer blocks (you can refreeze blocks in the campsite freezer)
Our final words of wisdom...!
Even a small BBQ, discarded lit cigarette or glass rubbish could easily set grass on fire & cause a large scale incident. It’s also just as important to keep ourselves safe from the sun’s rays and keeping safe by the river so we hope our tips have been helpful.
