Are you a glamper, a camper or a tramper?
Find out your camping personality…….
Campgrounds across Canada will be opening their gates soon with activities and camping opportunities for everyone.But the biggest question on everyone’s lips this week is, “Just what kind of camper are you?”
Here are just some of the most common breeds of campers found in Canada
The Glamper: likes to get outdoors, but doesn’t like to sleep on the cold ground or get dirty; surrounds self with luxuries like a comfortable bed, RV large enough to stand in, carpets, wine and good food. Origin often urban.
The Scamper: social camper, gets together with groups of friends, family or a club to organize group camping events; loves to socialize and share resources. Natural habitat often suburban.
The Tramper: die-hard Canadian back country-camper who enjoys long walks over rough country, then camping in a minimalist way at night, with a sleeping bag, camp stove and small tent; usually environmentally responsible, Indigenous to Canada, close relative of the Hike-amper found in Europe and the US.
The Kayamper: Keen kayak-based camper able to carry more camping equipment on a kayak and stay at sea-only accessible campgrounds, such as those found on some of the smaller Gulf Islands Origin thought to be water-borne.
The Vamper: Volunteer camper who saves money by volunteering to keep an eye on regional campgrounds in exchange for discounted or free campsite fees; popular in Canada’s Provincial parks as they help rangers maintain orderly campgrounds. Commonly found among retirees.
The Hamper: Camper more interested in the food than the tent. By nightfall, has the barbecue set up, the portable fridge going and the picnic table set, but yet to erect a tent pole. Sought-after at meal times.
