History Of National Camp Day
Leisure camping may be linked back to Briton Thomas Hiram Holding, although it got a solid footing in the United Kingdom by the infamous river Thames. Camping attracted a considerable influx of tourists in the 1880s, coinciding with the late-Victorian enthusiasm for leisure sailing. Because the early camping kit was bulky, it was preferable to transfer it by boat or a transport vessel which had the feature of being turned into a tent.
Holding is considered as the father of camping by most people. But the fact is he is responsible for promoting a diverse form of camping in the UK. During their young age, he was able to spend quality time exploring the American prairies and experiencing the wild in the truest sense along with his parents. Later on, he went on cycling and camping tours with his buddies throughout Ireland. The book titled “Cycle and Camp in Connemara,” which was written by Holding himself inspired the establishment of the very first club for camping which came to be known as the Association of Cycle Campers, during the year 1901 and later turned into the Camping and Caravanning Club. Holding authored “The Campers Handbook” during the year 1908 to express his love of nature with the entire world.
Throughout the 1870s and 1880s, the very first summer camps offered boys an opportunity to get away from the interiors and the tiredness that sips inside the bones of city dwellers. About 1900, the first girls’ camps appeared in the United States, with many of them based in New England. Camp Wyonegonic in Maine, which started around 1902, is indeed the oldest and longest-running girls’ camp. During 1900, there were fewer than 100 summer camps in the United States, however, by 1918, there have been over 1,000.
