Family camping is the best way to enjoy the outdoors during the summer. Outdoor adventures are a great bonding experience but preparation is key for a safe family trip, most importantly, campfire safety should be properly understood before any camping trip.

  • Check with your local municipal office about any burning restrictions or bylaws before burning grass or brush in a campfire;
  • Keep kids a safe distance away from campfires at all times, and never leave a child unattended near open fire;
  • Campfires should never be left unattended and must be carefully extinguished before leaving
  • To extinguish a fire, douse campfires with water and stir the ashes with a stick to allow the water to soak in and cool the ashes and ground.

Don’t forget your bug spray when playing outside, and make sure to check for ticks! Your chances of getting Lyme disease are slim if a tick is removed from your skin in less than 24 hours. Parents should always check themselves and their children for ticks under their arms, in and around the ears, inside the belly button, behind the knees, between the legs, around the waist and especially in the hair.
