Camping with Kids

Kids and camping seem to go together. The great outdoors is full of sights, sounds, smells, and great places to explore. In addition, camping vacations are a great way for the entire family to relax, have fun, and spend some quality time together.

The camping experts at KOA (Kampgrounds of America) compiled a worth while list of suggestions to help plan a successful family camping vacation. We thought we'd share a few of the tips with you here.  The advice given is almost certain to guarantee that you will have plenty of happy campers on your vacation.

  1. Plan your schedule, then cut it in half. Too much to do in too little time can turn a vacation trip into a military maneuver. Allow plenty of free time and time for spontaneous activities and side-trips.
  2. Slow down. You'll see more by taking your time exploring. Visit attractions and the outdoor area surrounding your campground. Stop to investigate an odd road-side attraction. Hike at a leisurely pace with plenty of rest stops, or spend time just playing games and relaxing together.
  3. When you pack, prepare a daypack or lunchbox filled with small toys, crayons, color books, and quiet-time diversions to help occupy youngsters during the drive and at the campsite.
  4. Have a good time. By all means, take in a historical site or stop at a state or national park visitor center and enjoy what they have to offer.
  5. Last, but not least, let yourself go. Run, play, laugh, and relax with your kids. Spend some time looking at things from your child's perspective. You will be amazed at what you see.

It takes a little extra planning, but following these few tips can help assure a family outing that's likely to be enjoyed and remembered for a long, long time.
