At Khyam, we’re passionate about making your camping experience as stress free as possible! That’s why we’ve put together some camping hacks below. Next time you plan a trip, make your life a little easier and try out these easy hacks.

Why not create your own lamp?
When the sun's gone down, turn any clear jug of water into a translucent jug of ambient light. Just strap your headlamp to your water bottle with the light facing inward and voila! You’ve got yourself a light that will create a lovely glow around your tent.

Looking for a little extra space to chill out?
Bring a hammock! Camping chairs take up more room than necessary, with a hammock you can throw it in your backpack and set it up anywhere that’s convenient. Plus, you can try getting some amazing photos like the one below! 

A family favourite game, but did you know that it also makes a handy plate? So, when you realise you’ve forgotten a plate, don’t worry, diner can still be saved!

Dread having to head into a cold sleeping bag after a long day?
We know that sometimes there can be nothing worse. Create your own water bottle by putting hot water in your flask, then placing it at the bottom of your sleeping bag 10 minutes before you go to bed. Your sleeping bag will be toasty warm, and you’ll have a fantastic night’s sleep.

Camping near water? Better be prepared!
Attach a cork to your keys to make sure that if you do lose them, they’ll float! We would also suggest adding a brightly coloured tag, that way they’ll always stand out.

Finally, never forget the trusty black bag!
Black bags can be used for a number of different purposes; to fix a tent, wear over your shoes (if you forgot wellies) and of course for keeping the campsite clean. We never leave without them.

Let us know if you try any of these hacks the next time you’re out camping and share your own tips and tricks.
