I think I’m pretty upfront about the fact that I am not a camper. Sure, I’ve slept in a tent. At a campground. Twice. It was fun, but I’ll never be a set-up-your-own-tent-in-the-forest kind of girl. However, I do like the idea of exposing my kids to camping, so if you’re like me, here are 10 family camping tips for the non-camper in you.
1. Stay in a Cabin. Some people may not consider this to be “camping,” but I do. Two summers ago, I stayed with my kids at two different KOAs. We stayed in cabins with bunk beds, bathrooms and a kitchen. The kids had a blast making s’mores, riding bikes around the campground and playing on the playgrounds. It was the perfect mix of outdoor fun and indoor comfort.
2. Try Camper-Ready Camping. I don’t own a tent. I could probably rent one from REI, but I really don’t want to be involved in setting up a tent (properly). So, camper-ready camping, in which a campsite is all set up for you, sounds appealing to me. You bring your own bedding and food supplies, but the tent, chairs, a propane stove and a lantern are all provided.
