Camping with Kids nine through twelve

My camping experiences are with younger children so far (but not for much longer). Please help me add to this page by E-Mailing your tips to Camp-A-Roo.

We have a big cloth laundry bag we take along on all camping trips. In the bag we pack ball gloves, baseball/softball, bat, frisbee, tennis rackets and balls, soccer ball, hackey sacks, etc.  Any sporting equipment your family might enjoy. This really saves the day for us.
We also pack a couple of blow-up beach balls. This gives the kids something to throw around in a swimming pool or even at a campsite.

We love to take our small rubber raft whenever we can. It packs very small, but provides big entertainment. Be sure to buy a low pressure blower that plugs in to the car cigarette lighter, and save your breath. Those rafts are bigger than they look. And get some decent life jackets for everyone.
