The Perfect Minimalist Experience: Camping

If minimalism is about living with less and finding space for more meaningful things in your life, then camping is the minimalist dream!


  • You live with less. You can only bring what fits in your car and keep what fits in your tent.
  • You leave the distractions of the world behind. Wi-Fi is scarce in the woods.
  • You make do with less. If you don’t have something you improvise or do without.
  • You participate in simple activities. Reading, walking, sleeping are staple activities for any camping trip.
  • You get to appreciate your surroundings. Listening to birds sing, the crackle of a fire, star gazing, cloud watching, and the smell of fresh air stimulates the senses and keeps you present in your place.
  • You learn what adds value to your life. What you can and cannot live without becomes clear when you are out camping and what really adds value to your day.
  • You build meaningful relationships. There are fewer distractions so your camping buddy can have your full attention and some of your precious time.

It makes minimalism a little less scary when you do it on a semi-regular basis without the world ending!
