Camping isn't just for fun. It can also improve your health. A few days in the woods can help you...

  • Sleep better: Struggling with insomnia? Multiple studies have shown that spending time in a natural light and darkness can help reset your body's sleep rhythms.
  • Live longer: Research from the University of East Anglia recently showed that spending time in green space helped reduce the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Feel happier: A 2009 study showed that people who live close to natural spaces are less likely to suffer from depression and anxiety than those who don't have nature in their lives.

But before you race off to the great outdoors, stop in at Old Town Archery & Survival for camping comforts and safety gear.
