campfire

You must have a campfire. This can be brought from home but you should have enough firewood to last through the night and the next day at least and even then it will not be enough as there is no way to know how long you will need it until you are there.

Firewood

Firewood must be gathered at least one day before your camping trip and even longer for fuel for cooking and heating if needed in order to enjoy your trip without freezing overnight temperatures or taking too much time.

Planning

Firewood is a large part of camping and cannot be taken for granted. It should be gathered at least one day in advance of your trip and even longer if you are planning on using it for cooking and heating. You must sleep in a tent, a camper, or any other similar structure such as a car. As stated above, you may use a hammock or elevated bedding to sleep as well but this is usually not recommended due to the fact that your body may fall off while sleeping.

Fire to Cook

You must have fire to cook with. This is part of camping, not a part of it’s rules. It is highly recommended to make sure that you have firewood for cooking and heating before your trip and also before you get there so that you do not need to wake up early to gather wood for cooking as well as for your campfire.

Destination

Camping is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the world around you. You can choose to go camping with or without company of family. In any case, proper preparation is a key element of camping. You should not hesitate to take your time to prepare for your trip as that will lead you to a much better experience when you arrive at your destination for camping.
