The Makers of BENADRYL(R) and the National Park Foundation Encourage People to Pledge to Spend More Time Enjoying Outdoor Moments
Discovery Channel’s Josh Bernstein Offers Fun and Wallet-Friendly Tips for Enjoying the Great Outdoors
To kick off the campaign, Discovery Channel’s international explorer and wilderness survival expert,
Josh suggests the following tips for enjoying the outdoors and helping to keep your family camping trip fun and incident-free.
- Select the Perfect Campground - Whether it’s a national park or your own backyard, choose a fun and unique location that suits your needs, budget and skill level.
- Know Your Surroundings - Where you set up camp could make or break your experience. Make sure your tent is on elevated ground in case of rain. Check whether there is a nearby water source and find an adequate cooking spot.
- Pack Essentials – Don’t forget necessities such as water and a flashlight, as well as a first aid kit and any medication you may need. For people with allergies, this probably means an allergy medication that can help relieve the symptoms of an unexpected allergy attack. Just as you would at home, keep all medicines and first aid supplies out of reach of the kids.
- Test Gear - If it’s your first time camping or if you’ve bought new equipment, be sure to test it before your trip. You don’t want to arrive at the campsite only to find your lantern doesn’t work or realize you’re missing a tent pole.
- Clean Up - We all love the outdoors and we want to make sure that these places remain vital in our lifetime and for our children and grandchildren. A good rule of thumb is to leave trails and campsites better than when you found them by collecting and properly disposing of your trash and any trash you find along the way.
“We are proud to partner with the National Park Foundation to protect our parks and encourage everyone to visit these very special places,” says

Allergies are caused when a person’s immune system overreacts to normally harmless substances. These substances are often referred to as triggers. Depending on their sensitivities, people can encounter indoor and outdoor allergy triggers anytime throughout the year that can lead to allergy symptoms.
