Camping and hiking information with tips for parents
The first time out with a baby or child camping can be pretty nerve racking for Mom and Dad.
The first few times I found myself so worried
that I didn't enjoy
Was the baby too cold? Would the baby get too hot? How could I keep
bottles sterilized? What happens if the baby gets sick, gets hurt,
gets scared, etc...
Two kids and many camping trips have taught me a great deal. There are only two things you really need to know.
Make this a pleasent trip for both you and your baby! Go prepared.
Camping with Kids
What's more difficult than camping with babies? Camping with kids,
Taking children camping requires a bit of planning, especially if they
have never camped before. Smaller children may be frightened, older kids
might be bored.
Spend some time in the family fun section of Camp-A-Roo stocking up on games to entertain the gang, have everyone participate in packing and meal planning, and find out what your child would like to before you pick a campground.
Let your gang plan their own time. Don't stick yourself with that job.
And don't forget! This is your vacation too!
