Surviving A Camping Trip… With The Kids!!

by Richard Carmichael on November 30, 2017

The idea of heading to a camping trip with your kids is super exciting. You can try something new. If your kids have not gone camping before, this is their chance to enjoy an activity you might have enjoyed when you were growing up. It is not easy though and you have a lot of things to consider.

The first thing you should get is a permit from your local park authority. Even if you are heading to a popular site, you still need to get the permits and even inform them about the exact date and time when you will be there.

If your family is not routinely taking off to the backwoods, preparing your kids mentally for the camping trip takes time. They might resist or just say no to the idea at first.

Letting them know about all of the benefits of camping and tell them lots of great stories about all the fun you can have in the great outdoors will help them get used to the idea. Getting them excited about the trip is essential as it allows them to open up to the value of what they are doing.

Don’t forget to bring toys for the road trip, prepare games and activities, pack enough food and water and don’t forget a medicine kit with bandaids, antiseptic and other medical essentials for the trip. You may far from any kind of store and getting these essentials once out and about in the woods can be a real challenge.

Remember that it is all about having fun, getting outside and gaining an appreciation for nature.

Don’t forget to pack plenty of cold and wet weather gear. You don’t want to get caught unprepared. For more tips on how to survive a camping adventure with your kids, check out the infographic below…
