Camping with kids can be a great experience but getting the right mindset, routine and equipment together is a steep learning curve (especially if your not a veteran camper yourself) and all that’s before you find a way to keep them constantly entertained 🙂
Drawing on experiences of the people who’ve been there before you is always the ultimate short cut and successful, enjoyable camping with children is no different.
Camping With Kids : A Parent’s Handbook
Sticking strictly to the first hand experience of a life long camper is this book written by Gia Scott.
Detailing all the bits and pieces needed for the child camper along with the easier side of campfire cooking and ways to stop the kids from getting bored.
Avoiding the major pitfalls does make the first overnight camp go much smother and lays a great foundation as you fine tune your outdoor activities.
This book is written in a very matter of fact style, which saves time getting to the main points. The tales and stories about the authors solutions to less than ideal camping experiences are worth reading alone.
