Camping this season? Donít forget your Glowsticks!

Camping this season? Donít forget your glowsticks!

Often thought to be the light source of choice for party goers and light performances, glowsticks are an incredibly useful source of light that apply brilliantly to life outdoors.

Multi function light sticks were first designed by the military back in the 1960ís as a light source and signal beacon for emergency situations and have since been adopted into many different industries and pastimes purely down to their incredible versatility.

Safe and Fun

Safe, fun and cheap to pick up even in larger quantities, good quality glowsticks will provide light for eight hours at a time and are rapidly becoming a must have camping accessory with many a use both on and off the campsite. Light your tent or caravan with vibrant glowing colour as a safe alternative to candlelight and a cheap and practical alternative to torch light, youíll never run out of batteries again! Hang or place them around your tent for colourful light thatís safe and fun making your tent a glowing beacon of light.

No more dark trips in the night

Dark campsites are a whole world of trips, slips and mishaps waiting to happen with tent guy ropes and awnings staked into the ground thereís always the risk of trips on those night time visits to the loo! Glowsticks are a fantastic solution to this age old problem, simply attach glowsticks or glow bracelets to your guy lines, pegs and awnings as warning beacons to nocturnal wanderers and prevent accidents and rude awakenings! On the subject of nocturnal wanderings, why not use glowsticks as a light source so that you can light your way, and the night lights never seem to work in those toilet blocks!

Stay visible

Tents and caravans, although a crucial part of camping (they are the roof over your head after all), are actually a small part of the experience as a whole. Camping trips are awash with outdoor fun and experiences that the handy old glowstick can help with. Tag clothing and accessories when youíre walking to ensure that youíre always seen and able to see, this is especially handy for keeping tabs on children whom seem to have a pre disposed inclination to wander! The weather conditions can change quickly when youíre on the peaks and fells and so glowsticks are an ideal beacon and signal wand should you become separated from your group, fantastic for visibility in low light conditions, glow necklaces, bracelets and glowsticks are also ideal for attaching to pets collars so that you can keep tabs on them too!

Light sticks are crucial as a means of light and as a signal for more extreme underground activities such as caving and potholing. Still active under pressure at depth and fully waterproof, glowsticks are ideal for use in extreme conditions and for dropping down potholes to test their depth and light the way.

So versatile

Incredibly useful for emergencies and high visibility, taking glowsticks on your camping trip also mean that your fun isnít restricted to daylight conditions, have you ever had a game of night Frisbee? Night sports are on the up thanks to the humble glowstick and the development of toys and balls with LED lights in them. Simply mark out pitches with glowsticks and give each team member a colour coded glow necklace so that teams can be clearly identified and youíre away, night sports and games are incredible fun! But the fun doesnít stop there, decorate mountain bikes with glow necklaces and bracelets for high visibility and hit the trails at dusk under bike light; itís surprising how challenging and fun an easy ride can become after dark! Group together with friends wearing glow necklaces and bracelets for spooky forest walks and trails after dark led by the light of glowsticks for extra eerie effects!

Have fun

Rejuvenate yourself at the end of the day with a fabulous BBQ and glow party and use colourful and vibrant glowsticks, glow necklaces and glow bracelets to decorate your campsite. Dress up in bright and colourful glow and really get the party going with glow juggling, glow sticking and dancing and drink from fabulous vibrant glow in the dark cups and barware. Fantastic fun for an amazing party atmosphere to be enjoyed by kids and adults alike, use a little glow for a camping trip that youíll never forget!
