From Latin ῝ campus ῎ which means field, camping designates a place prepared in the open air for camping. It is a mode of stay which consists of staying in a tent with appropriate equipment. It is an activity that was practiced since ancient times and which continues to exist until today. This is why the historian J. Bousquet asserted that “camping is the oldest and the newest thing at the same time.”

Indeed, thousands of years BC. AD, the nomads used canvases more or less large to create a small shelter and observe a time of rest before resuming their way. In the same way, the men of prehistory made camps to stay there; it was a kind of camping.

The campsite has more its origins from roman times during which it began to take shape little by little. At that time, Roman soldiers stayed in pagan (Latin tents made of stretched canvas) on campuses.
