The most popular show on Zee Kannada till date has been Kamali and rightfully so. A woman-centric show, Kamali looks at the life of a halli-hudugi, who comes to the big city of Bengaluru to complete her studies. If you follow the show regularly, you must remember the time when Kamali and her classmates went for the NCC camp.

Similarly, if you too are planning to go camping anytime soon, here are nine irresistible hacks you have to try.

2. Crayons will save your life in darkness

While NCC camps can be fun, it is important to keep your safety in check. This is mainly because you are going to explore a forested area and you might be exposed to certain things that you don’t find in your daily routine (wild insects, diseases in the air, poisonous plants and berries etc).

7. Be fire-ready

A lighter or matchbox will help you after hours in the forest regions because it not only repels animals but will also keep you warm at night. Remember, a fire helps in many things so carry something that can start a fire.

8. Insect-repellent should be your best friend

9. For antiseptic issues, use Listerine
