The “I hate camping because it’s cold” excuse. Dealing with unpredictable weather and temperatures can be a challenge especially in off-peak camping months.

Keeping hands and feet warm with Hand Warmer Packets is awesome!

It is easier to avoid being cold if you are camping in an RV but depending on the situation … that can be a bit of a contest too.

Tent camping is a whole different subject … it is almost impossible to stay warm if your tent is wet from rain or condensation.

Camping trips can be as low-key or high-energy as she desires.

A strenuous hike can provide as much exercise as a gym workout and gives the added benefit of sunshine and fresh air!

Make sure she is wearing comfortable Women’s Hiking Boots to avoid blisters.

The “I hate camping because it’s boring” excuse.

Most people we know actually APPRECIATE the slower pace of a camp weekend.

Personally, I am happy to leave the stress-filled, fast-paced city behind for a few days.

In the beginning, I actually had to reprogram my mind and body to slow down and enjoy it.

Without a doubt, it took a few trips to get the hang of it.

In addition to adults being bored, kids have a tendency to feel the same.

Planning for connection time with family is a huge benefit when camping.

Playing Bocce Ball is just one fun game to consider.

#10. Personal Hygiene

The “I hate camping because I can’t get clean” excuse.

It is a real bummer to be out in the wild and smelling like it!

Inadvertently leaving your toothpaste and deodorant in the medicine cabinet at home can really stink … ha ha … get it?

Having a Women’s Necessities Travel Kit dedicated for camping trips will help.

Another female-specific hygiene challenge for women is camping on your period.

Pack enough supplies and consider using a Reusable Period Cup which is inserted like a tampon and holds the blood inside the cup until it is removed and dumped into a toilet (or out in the wild if there is no toilet nearby like for backpackers camping in the backcountry.)

The cups are made from a medical-grade silicone, are reusable and come in different sizes to accommodate a woman’s age, menstrual flow and childbirth history.
