Be a Kid Again: Allergy Tips for Adult Summer Camp

Summer’s here and for a lot of kids, that means spending time outside at summer camp! But camps aren’t just for kids anymore. There are adult-only summer camps popping up all over the country where you can spend more time outside!

Whether you want the classic camp experience, more of a wellness retreat, or a networking weekend that happens to also include a game of tug-o-war, there are plenty of different kinds of adult-only camps to choose from.

Just follow these 6 tips below to help keep your allergies from getting in the way of your sleepaway fun!

Before Leaving for Camp

 

Plus

 

  • Research what the weather and climate are like at camp. The U.S. has several different climates and geographic zones that can bring different types of allergens. Even though your allergies may be fine at home, triggers could pop up at camp.
  • Pack allergy medication before you head to camp. There may not be many drugstores in the middle of the woods, so it’s important to be prepared in case your allergy symptoms strike.

At Camp

 

Plus

 

  • Make sure to keep the windows of the cabin closed to help keep pollen or other allergens from getting in. If the cabin gets hot during those summer nights, pack a fan to keep by the bedside.
  • When back in the cabin for the night, take a shower and change clothing. Not only will fellow bunkmates appreciate it (no one wants to be the smelly person at camp, regardless of their age), but it will also help keep pollen from tracking into the cabin and onto the bed. Prepare by packing two sets of clothing for each day of the week; one for outside and one for indoors.
  • Clean up any food/garbage around the cabin and empty the trash regularly. Not only will this help keep any hungry critters away, but it is also a way to help reduce mold growth on food lying around in the cabin.
  • In the morning, check the pollen count in your area. When airborne allergens are high, try to stick to indoor activities like arts & crafts.

Follow these simple tips and hopefully your camp experience will be filled with less sneezing and more happy memories of time spent out in the summer sunshine!
