  • Decide together what places to visit, an option is to let each person pick a special place each they would like to visit.
  • Take them shopping – let them choose a favourite food, clothes or camping gear etc.
  • If you are new to camping, have a test run and setup the tent in backyard and sleep in it for a night or two.
  • If they haven’t used sleeping bags before, try them out at home first.
  • Show your kids how to setup the tent and give them each a job to do.
  • Try some cooking on the campfire and teach them about safety around the campfire and equipment.
  • Listen to the night sounds especially animal sounds.
  • Remember to take any special toys, books, food, medication etc.
  • Choose holiday or camping activities to do – kids are always adventurous, they will also find plenty of things to do themselves.
  • Show them how to respect their surroundings where you are staying, when going for walks, visiting natural attractions and all other attractions.
  • Kids love helping with things such as setting up their own bed, cooking, collecting firewood, hammering tent pegs, filling water containers, etc.
  • Take some card games, puzzles, books, ball games with you, mostly they will find their own fun especially if there is other kids nearby.
  • Another holidaying and travel with kids tip is they love taking photos so let them take a few to keep. Maybe get them a photo album of their own that they can add photos to and collect them from each camping or holiday trip. They will love to look back at it years later.
