Camping With Kids
When I say the words “camping with kids” what images come to mind?
Inconsolable babies? Thunderstorms? Full diapers, mysterious rashes, tick bites? Mosquitoes, bats, burned food, no food, rustic latrines with no toilet paper, snakes, mountains of laundry . . . shall I go on? Would you rather not talk about it?
For parents, camping with kids can be one of the most pointless, frustrating and miserable things you may ever do in your lifetime. Why would you take your entire family out of their normal schedule and air-conditioned environment and purposely put them in a situation where they are cold, wet, dirty, hungry and as uncomfortable as possible?
Camping with kids is not for the faint of heart, but it can be a great way for your family to experience some “controlled” challenges. Often the difference between a great camping trip and a miserable one is simply having the right expectations.
