I come from a family of campers. Since the age of one I have camped and it is an activity that I thoroughly enjoy and that we plan on introducing Lil’ SPF to early on. One of the things that makes camping such a nice experience is a clean and comfortable atmosphere. One thing that my dad always had us kids do after we had packed up camp was to survey the camp site with a fine toothed comb for any garbage left by us or previous campers and made us pick up garbage. This activity took time and I must admit that we grumbled about it from time to time but in the end was very satisfying. We knew that the next campers would find a pristine site to settle into. Cleaning up a camp site is of course good for the environment but I would argue that it might also be financially favourable. People notice when a camp site if left clean and park staff will remember this. I can imagine that there is a list of messy campers out there who do not always get the site they want or when they want and instead are forced to travel further for their yearly camping trip. What do you think?
