Tips for camping with friends

  1. Find a suitable campsite – This is arguably the most important part, finding a space suitable for the type of holiday you’d like. Make sure the campsite allows fires, bbqs and doesn’t have set pitches so that you can share a space together. 
  2. Cooking rota – One of the best parts of camping in a campervan is having a kitchen. This gives you the opportunity to cook all your favourite dishes from home. Creating a cooking rota allows you to switch it up and try all sorts of different meals. Extra tip: If you’re going as couples, mix up partners and cook with people you haven’t necessarily spent much time with. Take it up a notch and create a cocktail rota to complement your dinner, margarita anyone?
  3. Bring plenty of games – Is there anything better than settling down after a long day of exploring with a couple of beers and a few card games? Have everyone bring their favourite game to the trip to ensure you never run out of fun things to do. 
  4. Find a suitable walk for the entire group – When going away with a group, it’s important to know that everyone has different fitness capabilities. To ensure everyone has a great time hiking, make sure you plan routes in advance and consider those that may not hike regularly. And don’t forget to bring along maps, snacks and plenty of water. 
  5. Arrange yourself in a circle – Why camp directly next to each other when you can camp in one giant circle? It’s the most social way of camping and gives you visibility of the entire group. The middle becomes a natural focal point for the whole gang and is the perfect place to light up the campfire.
