This is the time when you can explore, experience and enjoy the most. And camping is the greatest enjoyment.
Camping might sound little risky, but it is quite a fun and enjoyable thing that one can try in an adventurous trip. Adventurous trip is mostly done in unconventional places like deserts, pyramids, mountains, woods and so on, as the basic reason behind the adventurous trip is to fulfill the passion and curiosity of visiting new places and getting the most of the natural beauty.

Camps are mostly made up of cloth or plastic but these days, motor homes, caravans and different types of tents are available. Success of a camp trip largely depends on the weather condition. Weather can play the mood setter and the spoiler at the same time; summer is the best weather for camping. You do not have to carry many clothes, you need not install fans and coolers, you can use water as much as you want, and eat less. But the situations get reverse in winters and rains, especially the latter can be the worst weather for camping.
