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

Teach your kids to stay safe
(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.
