10 Tips for Camping with Kids sponsored by Coleman to have a great time family camping.
Author Tristin Rieken
Buy the right gear that will last for years. Like the Coleman® Dark Room Tent, air mattress or sleeping pads, cooler and cooking supplies, first aid supplies, and everything you need for the kid's camp kits.
Make campsite reservations as far in advance as possible (1 year max).
For less crowds, look for off-the-beaten-path campgrounds and plan weekday vacations. Or reserve a large group site for your friends and their families too.
To ease in to family camping keep trips short at first and build up to longer camp stays. Or try a dry run in your backyard before hitting the campground!
Give kids responsibility over their own belongings with Kids Camp Kits.
Teach kids camp etiquette and good stewardship principles.
Keep kids busy and a part of the team by involving them in camp tasks.
Plan fun meals that get the kids involved in cooking and are easy to eat on the go.
Prep food at home as much as possible.
Plan some activities but also allow for lots of down time, family bonding and relaxation.
