There is nothing more thrilling for kids but to room the outdoors or the wild with your guidance. This is why they look forward to camping opportunities during the summer. Believe it or not, kids want to go camping with their parents than join a bunch of other kids in a camp organized by a certain group. This is because they feel more secure when daddy and mommy are around.
Choose an appropriate spot - For this, you need to consider the age of your kids and their skills. In fact, your camping skills would matter here as well. If you have got very young kids, refrain from choosing a very remote and cold spot. It is easy to lose kids and get them sick in these places.
Prepare activities - Camp fire songs and ghost stories are surely entertaining but if they are all what you've got. Kids will be bored easily. While the sun is up, fill your day with activities like fishing, treasure hunting and other games.
Be ready to assist the kids - When they see you putting up the tent, cooking or preparing the bonfire, kids feel the itch to help. They will start taking things and have tasks completed their way. Sharp things like knives and dangerous stuffs like matches can hurt them badly. So, early on, include them in the list of the chore lined up for you for the day. Say, you can let them wash the dishes or hand in the ingredients for cooking or pitch the tent. This way, you can calculate their moves.
