Camping Benefits

spacious camping pitches at red deer village holiday park

Camping is a fun activity that allows you to experience nature, whilst keeping your body and mind active. It can create closer ties with family and can be an excellent form of stress relief. Red Deer Village Holiday Park offers camping facilities in a quiet area with car parking, toilet and shower facilities. It’s a short distance to both Frankfield Loch and Hogganfield Loch, with many species of wildlife spotted in the area. Despite it’s proximity to beautiful outdoors spaces, the park is only 15 minutes away from Glasgow’s vibrant city centre. Local transport links to the city are a mere 10 minute walk.

Below is a list of benefits of camping, to either tent alone or to share with your family members.

Spending time together camping

Camping can help you to spend more time with your family, friends or partner. Camping with your kids creates a strong bonding and enjoyable experience. Often, young children will get excited to go camping, and can make the entire family feel happy. It gives an opportunity for kids to work alongside you and explore nature and the environment.

Change of scenery

Camping is a good way to breathe in the clean, fresh, air of nature, as inhaling polluted air every day can be harmful. Enjoying fresh air and sunlight reduces stress levels, blood pressure and heart rate, as well as improving your breathing.


Camping can help people forget about the daily stresses of work, school life and digital technology. Plus, it allows the chance to relax and unwind in the comfort of the outdoors, listening to nature and enjoying some time off. This can improve your mood, and help you to return back to normal life with a spring in your step.


Exploring nature can keep you healthy, happy and stress-free, which can improve your physical health. Plus, some exercise is needed for camping, which also enhances your physical and mental wellbeing.

Gain new skills and knowledge

Trying something new can help you build self-confidence, develop new skills and challenge your mind and body. Learning how to survive in the outdoors can be an important and valuable life skill. Camping can also help kids to appreciate nature and develop friendly relations, as well as burning off some steam by running, playing or using the local play park.

Kids can also learn about nature, including plants, trees and wildlife. At Red Deer Village Holiday Park, we have booklets available for creature spotting around the area. Kids can also learn how to cook, use barbecues, but perhaps most importantly, learn to detach themselves from their technology. However, if total technology isolation is not for you, we do have free Wi-Fi!
