Tent and car camping is an ideal family activity that is inexpensive and creates lasting memories. Kids love it! They will relish the unstructured time outside – away from screens, homework and the demands of after school activities.
Preparing can seem daunting – Keep it simple! If this is your first camping trip, consider, for example, a campsite near a town so if food prep seems too much, you can drive to a nearby restaurant for dinner. Who says it’s a cheat?! For all kinds of other handy tips, pick up Tent and Car Campers Handbook – chock full of great advice to ensure everyone has fun.
If you live in Western Canada, Camping with Kids in the West is another great resource to set you on the right camping path – or off the beaten path if you prefer!
