GET KIDS EXCITED ABOUT CAMPING
Most of the children I know love camping and the very idea of camping gets them pumped up. There may be some kids who have never been camping before and the thought of camping terrifies them.
Camping is a wonderful way to spend time outdoors and really connect as a family and unplug. Unfortunately, the great outdoors can be intimidating for some people.
