Camping is a quintessential summer activity, and if you go camping this summer, you will want to be sure to follow these safety tips for camping so you can have a fun and safe time.

When I was little, I would go camping all the time in the summer, and I loved sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows.

Because I was little, I did not have to think about safety tips for camping.

I left that to my parents, who did eventually pass down some safety tips to me, which I would like to share so you can have a safe and enjoyable camping trip this summer.

1. Protect Yourself from Insects

One of the essential safety tips for camping is to bring insect repellent.

Insects carry diseases like West Nile virus and Lyme disease, both of which are very serious.

To keep insects away from you and prevent these diseases, use insect repellent that has at least 20 percent DEET.

Also, if you are hiking be sure to wear long pants and check for ticks at the end of the day.
