1. Choose your pitch wisely
Camping in the heat can have its perks: lovely long warm days and plenty of light. However, a good pitch is essential for maximising summer’s benefits and staying cool. Select a high pitch with a breeze if possible, or pick one that gets a lot of shade. If there’s no shade available in your campsite, set up a reflective tarp above the tent to give some protection; this is also a great place to keep food coolers and water bottles.
