I think a responsible camper is someone who cares about the place where they are camping, and makes sure they protect the environment and keep themselves safe.
Responsible camping includes having the right emergency equipment with you, postponing your trip if the weather is bad, boiling water from streams before drinking it and keeping water next to a campfire. A responsible camper doesn’t eat wild fruits and berries and doesn’t feed pat or go near wild animals.

I think that I’m a responsible camper because I try to be prepared when I go camping. I always check the weather forecast when I go, for instance. Also, I take bottles of water with me and canned food and of course I never eat any wild fruits or berries. Once, when I went camping with some friends, we built a campfire but we built it far away from our tent and any trees or bushes and we put it out properly by pouring water on it and then covering it with soil. We didn’t see any wild animals that time, but if I saw any while camping in the future I would leave them alone!
Other ways in which people can be responsible campers:
– Put all your litter in a bin or take it home with you.
– Never pick any flowers or plants or take any rocks or other things home with you; leave them for others to enjoy.
– Respect the peace and quiet of other campers by not shouting or playing loud music.
– Never use detergents, soap or toothpaste in any water source as they may harm fish and other wildlife.
