Camping Vocabulary Posted by on Jul 7, 2012 in English Language, English Vocabulary

Now that it is summer, many people are digging out their camping equipment and putting it to good use. Camping is an outdoor activity where the participants (known as campers) leave their home to stay outdoors while enjoying nature. When you go camping you might use a tent, a caravan, a cabin, or no shelter at all.
