Camping Glossary index

camping

noun

Definition of camping

An outdoor activity in which people stay and sleep (with or without shelter) in an outside area away from home for one or more nights.

The above is an entry in Campnab’s Pretty Darned Useful Glossary of Camping Terms. This glossary is another project from us, the two Erics (@shelkie and @karj). We had a harebrained idea to create a dictionary containing every single camping term we came across. Admittedly, this is taking some effort—and leaving us with less time for camping. D’oh!
