Bring Your Friends
What’s cooler than bonding with your family on a camping trip? Sharing in those same memories (and the cooking) with friends on your trip.
Do the kids have aunts or uncles with cousins nearby? Invite them along. Or even if your siblings don’t have kids, aunts and uncles are a great addition to the fun and take the pressure off you to always entertain.
And what about neighbors? Is there a family that both you and your kids get along with? Having other kids around can excite your own and possibly curb any fights between siblings.
And with more adults around, you can split up who brings what gear for the group. Plus, each family can be in charge of one meal for the whole group, or you can potluck meals and have everyone bring one part of each meal.
It’s really a matter of who you think everyone will get along with and who you think can hang with your camping style. Make it the ultimate sleepover they’ll never forget and one you know you’ll enjoy.
