The Importance of Survivalist Camps

  • Posted on May 18, 2019

Survivalist camps should be an essential part of your doomsday prep. As any survivalist knows, having somewhere safe where you can shelter from the elements is paramount when it comes to surviving out in the wild.

There are many reasons why a survivalist camp is important. The first one being that it can offer you shelter from harsh environments. Survivalist camps can keep you safe in extreme weather conditions, providing you with warmth in cold conditions and heat in cold conditions. They can also keep you safe and dry in wet weather.

As we all know, humans have evolved over time and during that time, we have also adapted to our modern environments and ways of life. This means that we’re no longer suited to living outdoors without adequate shelter. Humans can very quickly become dehydrated outside in hot weather, which makes having a suitable shelter even more important.

Survivalist camps can give you the essential shelter that you require in the event of a natural disaster and should be a must-have on your Dday prep list. Once you have a survivalist camp you can kit it out with everything that you’ll need so that you can make sure it’s fully equipped for anything life might throw at you.

With shelter being the number one priority when you’re out in the wild, the next most important thing will be finding water and food. But with survivalist camps ready to go, you can make sure yours is filled with everything you need. This means that once you have your shelter, everything else should be a lot easier. Keep it stocked with water and water purifying tablets, so that you can have access to clean drinking water. Solar powered batteries and other solar powered gadgets can also be important to have in your camp. This can allow you to power a heater in extreme cold conditions, or even a fan in hot weather. It can also be useful to know where to position your camp in order to take advantage of the weather conditions. For example, in extreme cold conditions, making sure that the sides with the least amount of windows are south facing rather than north facing, as the northern exposed sides can have limited light and can become much colder and more damp. Out in the wild, you would try to make a camp out of whatever materials you can find, using trees or caves as extra protection. Even though you have a ready-built survivalist camp, it won’t hurt to keep these traditional shelter methods in mind when you set up your base camp.

A GPS device can also be useful to have in your survivalist camps, as this can help you navigate your way to and from your camp if you go out hunting or hiking. But it can also be useful for pinpointing which direction is north, so you can better position your camp. You should always have a compass with you as well, in case of power problems with your GPS device. Plus, a traditional compass can easily be placed inside a small survival kit and kept safe inside your camp for when you need it most. That’s one of the benefits of having a survivalist camp, because you can keep it stocked and ready to go when disaster strikes.

“First, thanks for all of the help and patience in preparing to order our camp. You made sure that we really got what we wanted. From the time we picked up our camp we have really enjoyed it. It pulls great, and is easy to park and set up. This camp is so comfortable. Cooking and cleaning is easy, and everything is easy to get to. You can have people in and not feel crowded. We have camped in camp grounds, by lakes, and in the hills hunting with no problems. We like camping in it best when it is cold so we can use the wood stove. There is nothing cozier than that stove. Summer is nice to; the windows are placed so there is good ventilation. The door coming in from the front is more secure feeling. The kids are fighting over who will inherit it, but we are determined to wear it out before that happens.”
