Camping is one of those sublime joys in life. It forces you to go to sleep with the stars and wake up to the sun. It allows you to shut the door on the world and really, truly relax.
Camping with the family gives you quiet, alone time with the family out in the fresh air, amidst the deep green of the forest.
You will notice how much time you have to actually talk and listen to each other when there are no other distractions. Every state in the union has national and state parks available for camping and hiking. Some have campsites with public restrooms and showers, and still others allow backwoods camping.
A family camping trip is the perfect bonding experience provided that appropriate planning and preparation is put into the event. When purchasing camping equipment take into consideration the ages of those in your party.
It may be more appropriate to purchase a single large tent rather than two small. Portable disposal units might be better for the first time campers than digging. Mosquito netting and bug repellant are always “must” purchases.
Lanterns are better for inside the tent than flashlights and can be attached to backpacks. Also, will you be fishing or bring food supplies?
A good plan will make the family vacation a positive experience with nature versus a cautionary tale.
