Family camping tips

Are you planning for a family camping? If you are, then here’s how you can be assured that you and your children can have the experience of a lifetime camping together. Here quick and easy ways to entertain children every minute while on a family camping vacation.

1. Take your video camera. Allocate one soft small bag per child to put their favourite items in like colouring books, pencils, reading books, etc. Keep teenagers happy by letting them bring Game Boys, walkmans, their favourite books and magazines, etc. Bring along some toy zoo animals and let your children create their own zoo in the wild.

2. Bring some glow in the dark necklaces and torches. Bring along glow sticks for night lights. If your children are scared of the dark then tie a glow stick from the top of your tent. Bring along a couple of  led flashlights for some after dark exploring. Remember at night there is a whole different world of wildlife out there.

3. Let your children be involved in the planning and if they see places they’d like to go to or explore think of their needs as well. The more well-rounded your trip is the more fun every member of your family will have as a whole. Remember, this is a time for family togetherness so as long as you are together that’s the main thing.

4. Teach your children about bush survival and safety around the camp site. Encourage help with meal preparation but always supervise them around the fire as it is a very dangerous place.

5. Get your children involved by collecting water, grating cheese, setting the picnic blanket, collecting firewood, washing the vegetables, etc. You can even create a little competition and split chores into groups and keep a tally for your whole trip.

That’s it! Hope your family will have an enjoyable and memorable camping vacation.
