AKELA'S Top Tip: One item I can strongly recommend anyone to invest in for their camping trip is a Camping Sleep Mat. Feeling cold on a night, whilst trying to sleep, is not an enjoyable experience and can leave you feeling negative towards camping. A lot of cold is felt through the floor when camping, and sleeping on the ground. A camping mat will insulate the sleeper from the cold and can make camping a total different experience. When I was a young Scout my Mum and Dad kindly bought me my first Camp Mat, and almost 20(ish!) years later I still have and use the same mat, money well spent, thanks Mum & Dad.
