Behaviour at camp

things to observe
Things to observe…..

a)

Check the ground before you pitch your shelter;

objects on the ground can tear your groundsheet or

the bottom of your tent. You may even get injured.

As most tents will not afford you a lot of space,

it is best to position all bags neatly in a row in the tent.

Keep the area around your tent clean and free of rubbish,

otherwise you may attract unwanted guests like ants and flies.

Also clear away other objects like rocks and fallen

branches that might cause people to trip over.

Establish routines to be followed by everyone.

If you have a schedule of duties or a programme sheet,

waterproof these and stick them at a

prominent place, using masking tape.
