Family Camping Trip

Saturday, September 24, 2011

If you are planning a family camping trip this summer, here are some useful tips that I want to share to make sure that planned camping with the kids is not only a fun experience but should also be safe for all the participants.

Prior to camping, you have to select in advance which tent to use, its advisable to borrow or buy a bigger tent to accommodate all participants. Then, you have to practice assembling the tents in your garage or your backyard, you don't want to go to the camping site and finds out some are missing right? It's best to practice so you can install the tent faster.

I am sure you have selected where to camp already. Just make sure that a thorough check on the area, hiking areas, points of interest, what are the amenities offered, and accessibility to first aid.

You then have to create a checklist so you don't forget anything. Here are my suggestions in the list: cooking utensils, food containers, frying pan, bucket, stove, gear such as a frying pans, map, sleeping bags, first aid kits, flashlights, garbage bags, toiletries, sunscreen, ointments, insect repellent, rain coats, jackets.

Try to bring several canned goods. Would suggest to prepare some food while still at home and put them in the containers. You don't want to spend most of your time preparing for the food.

Even if you are at home, or in camping grounds, always remember to take care of Mother Nature thus throw your rubbish at the proper compost tumbler.

Sleeping under the stars, communing with nature, and camping with the kids - what else do you want in life? Just enjoy the time with your family.
