Health Tip: Don't Get Lost During a Camping Trip

(HealthDay News) -- Camping is a fun family activity, and a great way to enjoy the outdoors. But parents should teach their children about what to do if they get lost.

The Nemours Foundation offers these parental reminders:

  • Make sure kids remember landmarks during a hike and at the campsite.

  • Practice turning around and looking behind you during a hike to become familiar with the area you've just passed.

  • If lost, make sure your child knows to stay put and remain calm.

  • Have everyone carry a cell phone, assuming there is local reception.

  • If there is no local cell phone service, make sure children wear a whistle that can be heard from a long distance.
