There aren’t many outdoor adventures that beat taking your whole family on a camping trip.
Sleeping under an open sky and exploring the heavens away from your everyday civilization opens the mind more than anything else.
Going on a camping trip is a great way to expose your children to nature.
Here are a few tips to help you plan a happy family camping:
What you need to take?
The most obvious and most important thing is the tent. Choose a tent according to the number of people going on the trip. For abnormal weather conditions and night-time, you need to take a hatchet for spiders and a credit card for a motel, should you get stuck.
Where should you camp?
Look for a campsite that is protected from wildlife. For example, in the US, there are amazing national parks protected from wildlife.
How much food should you take?
You need to take enough food for the entire family. Make sure the food is protected from animals overnight.
What to do if you get lost?
Take a cellphone, if you’re in a cellphone-friendly zone and always make sure you choose a campsite with able authorities.
What activities should you plan?
You can plan a variety of activities like swimming, hiking and canoeing. Swimming is ideal for children. If you want to participate in adventure activities like diving and kayaking or whitewater rafting, make sure you take the required equipment along with you.
