Camping is one of the best outdoor group activities where you can truly enjoy nature along with your friends and family. But organizing group camping is not always easy. With varying schedules and working hours, it might be challenging to coordinate and organize a group camping. So why not go solo?
Most people around are not comfortable with the idea of camping alone. After all, if you go alone, you won’t get to share stories with your friends, roast marshmallows and enjoy the bonfire. Others may feel it is unsafe to go in the woods alone and set up a camp. Regardless of how you think about camping alone, there are some good reasons why you need to try it. Let’s take a look at some of the joys a solo camping trip can bring that you can never enjoy in a larger group.
You Get to Learn
When you go camping with friends and family, people take up tasks which they are sure to know. But the best part of camping alone is that you find out what you are capable of doing. You also learn the things that you don’t know. And with this realization, you try and learn new things which you would have otherwise never learned when camping with a group.
You Can Live at Your Own Pace
Are you tired of chasing goals and accomplishing tasks? Camping alone allows you to slow down and live at your own pace. Don’t want to wake up at 5 a.m. and go for a hike? You don’t have to. And you can only get this freedom when you go for camping entirely on your own.
You Push Your Limits
Camping alone is indeed a testing activity. Are you scared of spending a night alone in the woods? Can’t carry that heavy canoe? Well, you have to! Because there is no one else who can do it for you. And you only get to know about your own limits when you go camping alone.
You Get Opportunity to Enjoy Nature
Finally, camping alone gives you the opportunity to enjoy nature like you never did before. When there is no one around you notice things which you otherwise don’t. The birds chirping around, the beautiful sunsets, the refreshing air and the splashing river, we often ignore them when around people. So by camping alone, you get more opportunities to meditate and enjoy nature.
Whether you are a camping pro who can go camping any time or an occasional camper, the idea of camping alone is worth trying. Along your solo camping trip, you will learn many new things and enjoy nature in a different way.
