Everyone loves an open 🔥 campfire and this is one of the easiest ways to get kids excited about camping. Having a campfire and outdoor cooking is a blast, and can be one of the greatest enjoyments of camping.

Let your kids know this is part of what you plan to do on your camping adventures, and things they would like to cook over an open 🔥 fire while camping! πŸ™‚

Do A Practice Run Camping With Your Kids

Getting Kids Ready For Camping

One of the best ways to be prepared and ready is doing a camping practice run. This is always a good idea especially if your going to be 🎒 backpacking.

You need to make sure that all the items you need to bring along will fit inside those 🎒 backpacks and won’t be too heavy. You want everyone to be comfortable with the weight of the backpack, especially if hiking.

Once you get properly packed, it’s time to practice and see if you and your kids can comfortably carry those loads. It is also a good idea to practice in your backyard if ⛺ tenting. Try setting up your tent and be sure to let your kids help as well.

This is a good time to experiment with your sleeping arrangements!

What you can do and what your kids can, are not of course, always going to be on the same level. They have more limitations than you, and you should know just how far you can go with them.

This, especially so if going on a 🥾 hiking type camping adventure.
