Making Memories With Your Children On A Camping Trip

By Chris Jacobs

Most of us grew up going camping with our grandparents, parents, or uncle and aunt. Those of us that went on them camping trips have plenty of happy memories. Now it is your turn to make memories by taking your children on the kind of trip you went on when you were a child.

Before you go camping you have to make sure that you make a check list so that nothing gets left behind. Make sure you put everything you are going to need on that check list such as sleeping bags, tents, fishing poles, food, drinks, flashlights, battery operated lanterns for each tent, first aid kit and of course bug spray and sun block.

You want to also keep your menu simple. Hot dogs are always good because you can roast them over the fire. You can also do soup and stew because that can be cooked over the fire as well.

You also need to pack everything you will need to make smores. You can not have a great camping trip with out having smores. When you are choosing your destination you should consider finding a camp site that has toilets and showers. This will make your trip a lot more sanitary and also keep you from having to wonder through the woods just to go to the bathroom.

Speaking of woods, it is also a good idea to show your children what poison oak and poison ivy look like so that they can stay away from it. It is important that you camp at a local camp ground and not out in the wilderness. If you camp in the wilderness you will have to worry about bears or other big animals.

When you go on your trip at a camp site that has a lot of traffic the animals and bears usually stay far away because of all the traffic coming in and out of the place.

When you go on a camping trip, how do you plan on cooking? You could take a Jetboil Hiking stove along with you. This is a hiking stove that is easy to set up and will get your food cooking in no time.
