Camping is universal. It remains one of the most popular, affordable and accessible pastimes in North America.

Now, as this report shows, there are more campers than ever before. Camping is making inroads into every ethnic group and age category in North America. It matters not if you are a senior citizen or a member of the millennial age group, the desire to get outside – and share the experience – is increasing.

For many North Americans, camping is the way they choose to connect with family and friends. The vast majority (85%) plan to continue to camp at least as much or more than they have in the past. Add that to the fact that the rate of campers camping with children is now 50% and growing, and it’s easy to see that everyone wins when children and their parents share time in the outdoors.

That all bodes well for the fight of the health and fitness of future generations, as well as for the future of camping. Children and young adults are being introduced to camping at an ever-increasing pace and they, in turn, will bring their own children camping in the future. The long-term viability of camping as a primary leisure activity has never been brighter.
