Water is very important. The water you pack shouldn’t just be for the duration of your trip. Add some extra liters to get you covered. If you are not a fan of lugging around heavy bottles of water, you can simply bring a portable water filtration system as well as some purification tablets. Water is very important because it is key for survival. You will be fine for several days without food but a deficiency in water is critical. It is also ideal to camp near a source of water but not too near that you might get flooded.

Have A Plan For Communication

Your kid might accidentally wander off and lose his way. One way to ensure that he doesn’t go far is to inform the neighboring areas about your camping trip. In that manner, they will be familiar with the members of your party and be able to keep an eye out in case one goes missing. Disclosing your location as well as the duration of your trip will also give your closest relatives an idea of when you should be back. They can send out a search party or whatever necessary response if you still haven’t made it back a few hours after you indicated.

Another way to communicate is to whistle a happy tune. Whenever you are camping, there is always the danger of losing cellular service. Electronics are usually unreliable in the wild. What you can do is to create a whistle tune that will be exclusive to your family. The happy tune will keep the young ones from panicking. The high-pitched tune also travels better through the forest. It is far more efficient than screaming for one another. You can also hand each family member portable whistle. Designate whistle patterns to signify that you are looking for each other.

Another important thing to implement is a buddy system. This system means that no member of the family is allowed to wander off alone. A person should always have a buddy wherever he goes. The kids should always hold hands with a companion. This is a convenient way of keeping everyone safe and in check.

Everyone should also have their phones with them at all times. Even if the signal is not strong, there is still a chance that it will strengthen and then the window for communication will be open.
