Learn More About The Camping Scene Drawing

Camping is a "recreational activity in which participants take up temporary residence in the outdoors." Camping first took a recreational turn around 1908, with the publication of The Camper's Handbook.

Prior to this time, nomadic life in tents was a lifestyle necessity rather than a type of vacation. Throughout history, various peoples have resided in tents.

Tents, in turn, have been used for "a wide variety of purposes, including recreation, exploration, military encampment, and public gatherings such as circuses, religious services, theatrical performances, and exhibitions of plants or livestock."

A modern camping trend is known as "glamping." Glampers like to bring all the comforts of home when they go camping. This often includes personalizing their campers and bringing amenities like cable television sets.

Camping is included in the storyline of many elements of popular culture. During the 1980s and 1990s, the theme of "summer camp" was common in entertainment.

Examples include the Nickelodeon comedy series Salute your Shorts and the film Ernest Goes to Camp. The Animal Crossing video game franchise has more recently brought camping into the limelight.
