The good times spent together camping, the cooperative effort, and the opportunity to explore new places, these all have the potential to create lifelong memories which you can always look back to and cherish.
While no child should be introduced to camping against his or her wishes, there are many ways to make them love camping. Here are several suggestions aimed at making camping fun for all.
Get Everyone Involved
There are many ways to keep everyone involved. You can start by keeping a vacation journal, for instance, and let everyone play an active role in filling it. You can also delegate various responsibilities, depending on age and safety factors.
Start a Family Tradition
Another way to keep everyone interested is to create a family tradition. Whether you go for hikes, boat riding, swimming, or just telling stories, find something they identify with and create a family tradition which will keep everyone looking forward to the next trip.
Create a Learning Environment
Spending some time outdoors creates endless learning opportunities. In any natural setting, you can learn or teach your kids a thing or two about plant species, animal tracks, birds, and survival skills, among other things.
