When it comes to planning a trip, the most affordable option known is outdoor camping. Not only are you outside getting close to nature and soaking up the sun, but it is also proven even to reduce stress. Now, more and more people are expressing interest in camping, especially Millennials and Generation X. Here are the top three reasons why camping is rising in popularity among the younger generations.
According to the 2018 North American Camping Report, camping is rising in popularity across the United States and Canada. Reports show that “77 million U.S. households have someone who camps at least occasionally.” The report also shares that Millennials and Generation X make up three-quarters of all campers.
One main reason camping is popular to all is because it is a time to relax and escape busy work-life. However, it seems the increase of new, young campers are on the rise because of the unique camping accommodations acquired over the years, for instance, general access to camping, increased access to Wi-Fi, and cell service has been added. People who were never interested in spending time outdoors are now finding new innovative ways to camp without leaving their beloved technology.
Another reason camping is becoming popular is because you don’t have to live outside to call it camping. There are so many websites that offer living quarters for your camping trip. Campers can choose a tent, yurt, cabin, trailer, teepee, and so many other categories. With unlimited access to all these camping accommodations, it is no wonder why Millennials and Generation X are excited to try new ways to camp.
While camping is a way to escape busy work-life, people still want the option to be connected. Reports indicate 97% of campers bring some type of technology with them while camping. Although in the past it was enforced that bringing tech onsite would interfere with the camper’s safety and security, times have changed, and now smartphones are being used for safety purposes. Also, with the invention of smartphones, Millennials like to share photos and videos on social media of them camping.
