Glamping is becoming more and more popular and I think it’s brilliant. It’s a way of being able to give people the camping experience without the need of providing their own accommodation (RV, caravan, tent etc). First things first, there are several different levels of what I’d consider ‘glamping’, and even then other people’s opinions could be different! I grew up going on caravan holidays, now our UK caravans are very different from the US ‘campers’. Our caravans are tiny, where the only beds are converted forms of the tables and chairs. USA caravans are like huge mansions with full sized kitchens and bedrooms with extendable sides and air conditioning. That alone I’d almost consider quite a ‘high up’ version of glamping!
One of my first adventures overseas was when I worked on a summer camp back in 2008. I was a camp counsellor in up-state New York! Looking back at the amount of luggage I took for the 3 month trip is embarrassing, I didn’t really have a clue what to take and I’m proud to say my packing has definitely improved! There are some things that I’m glad I took so hopefully my camp counsellor packing list will give you an idea on where to start when preparing for summer camp!
