Spending time in the outdoors is one of the best things about the summertime.

Camping trips mean you can cook over an open fire, explore nature and sleep under the stars. Of course, you may also be swatting away mosquitoes, dealing with sunburn and trying to stay dry inside your tent when it rains. In the end, camping is always an adventure. Whether you’re taking an RV with the family, pitching a tent at your favorite national park or hiking deep into the woods all by yourself – one thing is for sure – memories will be made.

Natural Healthy Concepts has teamed up with NOW Foods to put together a prize package complete with items you can use on your summer camping excursions or any outdoor adventure! All you have to do is tell us about the one thing you would never forget at home before you hit the road.

How to Play:

Entering this sweepstakes is easy! All you have to do is leave a comment and tell us about the one item you absolutely must-have with you on any camping trip. It could be kind of like that luxury item that contestants of the reality show Survivor take with them. It could be a certain vitamin, supplement, a probiotic or drink mix that you rely on to stay in good health. Or maybe it’s something as simple as your pillow…

Here’s a little twist…

Participants who choose an item that’s available at Natural Healthy Concepts – like sunscreen, trail mix, dry shampoo, travel-sized toiletries or energy bars – will have their entries counted twice. That means you will double your chance of winning!

Just leave a comment below and tell us what your one special item would be – and why you’d never forget it. Pick a product from our website and you’ve got an even better chance to win!

  • Only one entry/comment per person. Duplicates will be disqualified.
  • Make sure to enter a valid email address so we can contact winners.
  • If you pick a product from Natural Healthy Concepts – leave a link to the product page in your comment.
