It is getting increasingly difficult to get a college education for a number of reasons.
Sometimes (mostly!) it can be cost prohibitive, but actually, the competition is stiffer than ever before.
With the US ranking 17th globally in education, many of our high school graduates are simply unprepared for advanced levels of academia.
A growing number of college students are aware of the challenges that await them and are working hard to pay their tuition and keep up their grades.
These are the ‘serious’ students who have set goals for themselves and are out to achieve more. Then there are the Millennials who are focused on what they can contribute rather than the wealth they can accrue. Here are three reasons why these students may prefer camping over the iconic Spring Break on Florida and California Beaches.
Time to Chill
Given a chance to party or simply take a break from it all, many students appreciate the opportunity just to sit back and chill. They aren’t interested in partying because they can get their fill of that on campus and they aren’t ready to face another term without a chance to take a breath in between. Whether they want to go hunting in the woods with their gear from woodburyoutfitters.com or are simply looking to spend some quiet time reflecting in the beauty and serenity of nature, they simply want to get away from it all, and who could blame them?
Alone Time with That Special Someone
For years, Spring Break was the place for guys to meet girls and girls to look for that Mr. Right they’ve been dreaming of all their lives. The epic Spring Break meant partying throughout the night, getting caught with open bottles on the beach, and getting to see some amazingly built bodies scantily dressed. However, there are those students who already have that special someone in their lives. These students just want to spend time alone, quality time, with each other and what better place is there than in the wilderness where the phone won’t be ringing off the hook and roommates won’t be bothering you at the most inopportune times?
A Chance to Hike, Climb, and Raft
While you can get plenty of action on Spring Break, it typically isn’t of the athletic type. Some students are simply tired of sitting at their computer or in libraries for months on end and want a chance to get some great physical activity. Camping provides the perfect opportunity to hike, climb, and raft. Instead of dancing on the beach, they can hike trails that tax their endurance, raft on rapids that build upper body, and climb to heights they’ve never before attained.
If you are looking for something different this year on Spring Break, why not give camping a try? Either with that special someone, a group of buddies, or all on your own, it’s a chance to get in a little R&R before the next term hits, and you are too tired to think. This year, do something out of the ordinary because that’s who you are. Enjoy time spent just being you!
