Camping with kids – The 3 P’s
Planning, Preparation, and Patience.
Camping with kids requires a lot more thought and attention to details than an adult camping trip. From camp food and recipes, to camp games and activities for kids – plus every other aspect of camping, has to considered with the kids in mind.
If an adult doesn’t have something he needs, or the weather turns rainy, – he will improvise. If it happens to a kid it is a disaster!
This is where pre-planning and camping checklists can save the day. These tips, tools, and resources will help make your sure camping trip goes smoothly.
