Glow sticks are becoming more popular amongst campers and outdoor enthusiasts because of their dependability as well as versatility. Glow sticks are more dependable than flashlights, lanterns, and candles. Having glow sticks on hand also helps lighten your pack as you won’t need to carry around batteries.
Because we want you to have a fun and safe camping experience, here are 4 ways to use glow sticks to keep you and your group out of harm’s way:
1. Hang your glow sticks from your tent. This will provide you with light throughout the night and into the morning. This way, you won’t have to rely on battery operated tools like flashlights or lanterns.
2. Mark hazardous areas that could cause injury, like a branch or a hole. It will be easier for you to notice these areas on your way back to camp as well as notify any group members hiking behind you.
3. Mark a path to the bathroom so you can easily find it. As the sun starts to set, be sure you have a clear way to the bathroom so it is easily accessible for you and your group.
4. Keep track of your animals with a light stick attached to their collars. This way, you will be able to easily locate them as the sun begins to set.
