Campsites will require you to be 18 or older if you want to camp without parents. Also, you cannot rent a campsite if you are under age. While there is no age limit to enjoy a camping trip, under-age kids, children, and teenagers must have adult supervision.
These restrictions apply to most countries, including the UK. However, in the United Kingdon, you might some campsites that will rent a pitch to 16 year olds or older.
Can 16 year olds go camping alone UK?
We do not recommend children under the age of 18 go camping by themselves without some kind of adult supervision. As a parent you will understand that. But if you are the one under 18, you may not want to hear it, and we understand why.
So what can you do?
Well, it’s simple. Coordinate a camping trip with your friends and you guys decide which parent or group of parents can come along. Why not? You will still have time to spend with your friends and there will be an adult that can help keep things safe for all of you!
At what age can you start camping?
Literally any age. But if your question is more about ‘camping on your own’, then we recommend waiting until you are at least 18 years old.
Parents take their children camping as young as a few months old, all the way up to teenagers. So you can go camping at any age really.
Can you go camping under 18 Australia?
Like most developed countries (and with good reason for it), you must be 18 or older in order to book a campsite or pitch area.
Many campsites owners do not believe kids under the age of 18 should camp alone. There is a lot of responsibility involved from both sides – the camper themselves, and the campsite owner. The law in many developed countries has agreed that anyone 18 or older, has developed some level of responsibility.
How old do you have to be to go camping by yourself?
You must be of legal age in your country in order to go camping by yourself. There are 2 major reasons for this;
1. Most campsites (if not all) will not rent a camping area or space to underage kids. The designated area must be tied to an adult that takes responsibility for the time they are there using the space.
2. If you decide to camp in an area that is illegal and get caught, you could be in a lot of trouble for being underage. You don’t want or need those headaches, right?
BUT, also keep this in mind!
Safety first! We DO NOT recommend you go camping by yourself without at least one other person. If you are underage, make sure you go with an adult, hopefully, a parent or legal guardian. If you are going camping with a friend’s family, just make sure you have your parent’s permission and they know EXACTLY where you guys will be camping at and for how long. Your family should know precisely when you are leaving and when they should expect you back by.
Also make sure everyone has a way to contact you.
What age group goes camping the most?
Definitely Millenials with children.
