Taking your kids camping can be a great experience for the whole family, but if you aren’t prepared, it can turn into a bit of a nightmare. My name is Stella and my husband and I started taking our kids camping a few years ago. We thought it would be good for the kids to get out of an urban environment and it seemed like a cost-effective way to take a holiday. Our first few trips were a bit disappointing, to be honest. While we thought we’d brought all the equipment and children’s stuff we needed to keep everyone happy, we basically discovered that we’d brought along a lot of stuff we didn’t need but didn’t have things that turned out to be essential. To make it easier for other families that are considering a camping trip, we’ve put together this blog to pass on some of things we learned.
