My husband and I went camping as kids – he did Cub Scout camping and I did a few Girl Scout camps. However, we haven’t done any camping with our kids until my daughter and I did Camporee last spring with my Girl Scout troop. True, we were sleeping indoors, not in the tents I remember from Girl Scout camp. Or on the ground like my oldest son did for Venturing.
But, I still call it camping.
This summer, my sister-in-law and brother-in-law want to take my kids camping. We decided to start with backyard camping before camping in the woods with the bugs and the wild animals. I know one of our kids who wouldn’t get within 10 feet of bug unless the house was on fire will have a tough enough time with backyard camping. I think the other younger kids will embrace it. Me, I’ll be in the tent with the air mattress.
I shared 4 camping projects, 3 camping recipes, and 4 amazing camping resources to help my kids have fun camping this summer over at NEPA Mom.
