5 Ways How to Stay Healthy at Summer Camp

Spending a summer at a camp is one of the most fun and safest experiences of your life, but also not the most healthiest place to live and work due to the exausting long days, hot weather, confined and communal living and bathroom facilities and unhealthy food. It is vital that you take care of yourself and have enough energy to get through your daily routine. Here are our 5 top tips for keeping fresh whilst at camp...


1. Drink lots of water

No matter where you are based in the USA, summer is hot. Most jobs are outdoors and so it is important to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.  


2. Choose food carefully

Food at camp isn't usually the most healthy as kitchen need to cater for hundreds/sometimes thousands of people so most is bulk made. Expect lots of fried food, like chicken strips, chips and melted cheese toasties. There are usually healthy options available thought include lots of fresh fruit and salad. You will feel a lot better choosing the healthy option.


3. Get lots of sleep & make the most of relaxation time

With long days of activities and socialising sleep might not seem like a big priority. But you will need to get lots of rest due to the exhausting days. Taking some time out just to relax, read or sleep will do your body the world of good.


4. Be social

You will feel better when surrounded by others so if you are having any problems it is aways good to talk.


5. See the camp nurse if you anytime

With a million and one things to do going to see the camp nurse might seem like a priority, but even if you have the slightest concern or ailment, be sure to make it top of your list.
