ST. LOUIS, MO (STL.News) Quake Kare, a top national provider of emergency survival kits, has introduced a compact Camping Survival Kit that enhances safety, security and peace of mind for lone trekkers, camping families and camp organizations.
The inclusive and portable Camping Survival Kit contains outdoor essentials including fire starters, waterproof matches, Mylar blankets, ponchos, first aid supplies, portable tools, bug repellant, toilet paper, an emergency survival guidebook, plus additional items to address campground contingencies.
“Nothing spoils a camping trip quicker than being under-equipped for dealing with routine problems, bad weather, useless flashlights or minor injuries,” said Brian Houser of Quake Kare. “Our new ER Camping Survival Kit is carefully designed to provide crucial supplies that campers need when they need them.”
Quake Kare’s new ER™ Camping Survival Kit, launched in February 2018, contains these items in addition to those noted above:
- Toilet seat and bucket for portable sanitation
- Folding shovel
- Hand saw
- Fabric, leather and vinyl repair kit
- Utility cord
- SPF 30 sunscreen packets
- AfterBite treatment packets
- Basic hygiene supplies
- Duct tape
- And more
ER Camping Survival Kit supplies are packaged in a water-resistant, heavy-duty plastic bucket that can be easily carried with its comfortable handle and be stored in a car, truck, camper or canoe. The Fabric, Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit features Tear Mender® Adhesive and Vinyl Mender Patches for quick, permanent repairs on tents, tarps, hiking boots, packs, ponchos and clothing.
Quake Kare anticipates a busy sales season for the new ER™ Camping Survival Kit, Houser said. “Put simply, camping is gaining in popularity, particularly among younger people,” he said.
Millennials comprise 38 percent of the 75 million active camper households in the U.S., up from 34 percent in 2016; fifty-one percent Millennials say they plan to increase their camping activities, according to the 2017 North American Camping Report by Kampgrounds of America, Inc. (KOA). Their key reasons for camping include spending more time with friends and family, being physically active and improving overall emotional well-being and health.
“Quake Kare’s ER™ Camping Survival Kit complements our company’s full range of emergency survival kits to help protect people when pandemics and disasters occur, whether they are natural or man-made, including earthquakes, floods and tornadoes,” said Houser.
