Prepare an Unforgettable Family Camping Trip

Article Contributed By: Tadej Kožar   Hey camper, are you ready to take your family to wilderness? Family camping is an activity that has many benefits. Taking your family out in nature will result in bonding, learning survival skills, playing games, cooking and taking care of the supplies. The preparation for the trip is the most crucial for the adventure to succeed. So, in this article, we will look at the camping preparation process and activities that you can do with your loved ones. Camping Preparation This is the most important step before going outdoors. Think about how your trip will go and what will you do when you arrive at the camp spot. If you prepare for the camping trip then you should have a wonderful time together without any surprises. Check our family preparation tips for the outdoors. Choosing a camping tent If you already have a tent, that’s great. However, you should check if the shelter is still in the shape as it was when you bought it. Take your kids and pitch the tent on the backyard. Take the time and make it a fun activity. The shelter should be without any tears. Also, check the zippers and poles and make repairs if needed. Listen to the weather forecast before going camping. If you expect rain then you should use a tent that won’t leak or just bring a tarp with you which you will put above the tent for extra protection. We also recommend using a tarp under the tent. If you expect sunny weather then you don’t have to worry about bringing extra equipment. Are you without a tent and looking for a new one? There are some considerations regarding buying a new family tent. When choosing this kind of tent, think about a tent size, the tent and pole material, ventilation system and the camping season. If you are camping all year then you should think about getting the 4-season tent. However, if you won’t camp in the winter time then a 3-season tent should do it. Most big tents are in the shape of the cabin. These popular family shelters enable a comfortable camping experience since the tent has walls to ensure the smooth moving through the tent. Cabin tents also have more rooms for sleeping and other activities like cooking and spending quality time with family. They feature one or more doors and are great for a long camping vacation. Clothes Children should have enough clothes to change when they need it. If you thought of cotton clothes it isn’t such a good idea since this material gets wet soon and dries slowly. Avoid hypothermia and get some synthetic clothes that won’t absorb the moisture. Medical Supply The medical kit is a must in the wildness. When you are out there you won’t have any medical assistance close so take your medical kit with you. Open the kit and see if anything is missing. Think of medications that your family members are taking. Prepare the medications and put them in the closed box or plastic bag that closes tightly. Food and Water You should think of the food and its preparation at the camp. It is good to take some dry food that will serve you when you get hungry fast. Dry food is an excellent snack when you will be hiking through the mountains or woods. Cook pasta that your kids love and put it in the food storage containers. Cooked eggs are also a great idea to get energy. Don’t forget about the water supplies. Get some water containers so you will have fresh water on the reach of the hand. Water will serve you for drinking, cooking, taking a shower, and washing dishes and clothes. Some foods spoil quickly and you should put them in the cooler so they will last longer. If this is not possible then prepare dry food and avoid fresh milk and meat products. You don’t have to worry about the selection of food too much, just think of long-lasting foods and prepare them the way you like. Bring fruit like apples, pears, oranges, and bananas. Dry fruit and nuts are also a good choice. Kitchen Accessories A cooking stove and other cooking accessories will come handy. Heat your pasta and other food on the stove and serve it as you would do at home. Boil the water and cook a fresh cup of tea for kids and fresh coffee for your partner in the morning, they will love it. Learning survival skills Your kids love the fun, we know that, but you can take advantage of the trip so they will learn some of the survival skills as well. Tell them to bring water or wood for the fire and reward them when they come back. You don’t know how to do that? Think of things they like. Let the kids set up wood for a campfire and then light it together. Knowing how to set up fire is a skill that everyone should have to survive. Camping is all about fun We are sure you are going camping to have lots of fun together. Bring some board games and cards and play them through the day or at the evening close to the campfire. Games that involve activity are a great choice to laugh and bond so play football, hide and seek, and other popular games. Camping as a Family Camping in a fun outdoor activity, however, you should take care of some things before going in nature. Plan things as we recommend and we are sure your family will love to make camping as a habit.
