Today "Family camping gear packages," where to go to get them, and where to go and purchase all the equipment you will require for your family camping trip out into the wilds of America.
When we look through the statistics of how many Americans went camping in one way or the other in 2016, some staggering figures jump out at us. Apparently, there are over 40 million people over the age of six that went camping in one way of the other during 2016 alone.
Even more startling, is the above figure of over 40 million people equates to close to 14% of the total population of America were at any time in 2016 traveling through the wilds of America. A staggering figure I am sure you will agree, yes between them they notched up a mammoth 587 million days out in the wilderness.
Where did all these people go? Most headed to the mountain ranges of Montana, Arizona, and New Mexico.
Let's have a look at a gentleman widely acclaimed as the creator of modern-day camping, a British gentleman's tailor named Thomas Hiram Holding.
Whereas in 1880, camping along the banks of the River Thames just outside London had become popular, mainly because camping gear of that time was somewhat cumbersome and bulky that people sailed in their camping gear by boat, before setting it up on the banks of the river at the point of landing. It was only after our tailor had been on a camping trip with his family crossing the grand prairies of America, did wild camping begin to rise in stature.
He was so enthralled with his camping trip in America that he persuaded a few friends to come on a cycling camping trip across Ireland. After the tour, he decided to write a book about the journey calling it "Cycle and Camp in Connemara".
So popular did the book become that a cycling and camping group formed around the ideas written about in the book. This group would become known as the "Association of Cycle Campers, "later to become the "Camping and Caravanning Club". He later followed up with this book up with "The Campers Handbook," which he wrote in 1908. From that day on camping would never be the same.
Later in the club's history, in 1894, the first-ever commercial camping ground was opened on the Isle of Man near the small town of Cunningham. The site was named rather aptly "Cunningham's camp". Later in 1906, the "Association of Cycle Campers," opened up their own camp in the small town of "Weybridge," which caused the club to merge with others to form what is now known as the "National Camping Club". However, as it was created just before the outbreak of World War One, all camping was placed on the back burner. After the war they received a significant boost when Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the boy scouts, became their President and there you have how this wonderful recreational form of sport was formed.
To learn more about where you can camp and what type of camping activities are available, then contact "The International Federation of Camping Clubs" . An association formed way back in 1932, and they will send you information all free, which will list the many camping activities and site both in North America and Europe.
