About This Quiz

Camping. What other word has more drastically different meanings, depending on whom you talk to? For some, going camping entails nothing more than a backpack, a canteen and a walking stick. Hardcore campers enjoy the experience of actually roughing it, testing their endurance against the elements and reveling in their status as just another animal in the wilderness. 

Others go to the woods with their top-of-the-line ice chest, brimming with beverages and gourmet food to cook over a fire, surrounded by friends kicking back in camp chairs. Camping can mean playing music under the stars, socializing in the pure, clean air of the mountains, away from the distractions of city life. 

For yet others, camping means rolling up in a fully outfitted RV, arriving in a scenic location with all the comforts of home ready at hand. A family can experience the beauty of the wild without ever having to use a public restroom. This brand of camping focuses on the amenities offered by many of our national parks, including pools, playgrounds, and shuttles to and from the trail. 

Then, of course, we have to make room for the glampers: those glamorous campers who enjoy the camping vibe and kitschy camp decor, arranged in safari tents outfitted with king size beds, air conditioning, WiFi and a hot tub nearby.
