Being cold isn’t fun when you are camping. Infact it can be a matter of life and death! but with a bit of preparation, it needn’t ever be a problem. There is a huge amount you can do to keep warm while camping, some of it pretty and straight forward and some of it not so obvious.

The best way to keep warm is to not get cold. Sounds obvious! But once you have allowed yourself to get cold, it can be very difficult to warm up again. It is especially important to not let yourself get cold before going to bed. The second thing to remember is to stay dry. Nothing cools you down faster than being wet, which is why sweating is so efficient at lowering our body temperatures. Always have a dry change of clothes available, change out of wet clothes immediately and wear moisture-wicking fabrics next to your skin.

“Hypothermia is a dangerous drop in body temperature below 35C (95F). Normal body temperature is around 37C (98.6F). Hypothermia can be serious if not treated quickly. You should call 999 and give first aid if you notice signs of hypothermia.”
