Backyard Camping Trip

Are your kids begging you to take them camping, but you can’t find the time to take them on a camping trip?

Or would you like to introduce your kids to the fun of camping for the first time but aren’t sure if they will enjoy it or might get scared?

Either way, camping out in your backyard will be a fun way to spend the evening and night with your kids.

Get the kids involved in setting up camp in your backyard. Have them help you set up the tent. Put them in charge of getting their sleeping bags, flashlights and anything else they may need into the tent. If it’s an option for you, you may even want to make a campfire in your backyard. Check with your fire department beforehand if this is an option in your area. If not, dig out the charcoal or gas grill. Grill some hotdogs and make some foil backed potatoes for dinner, and of course, you’ll need some s’mores for dessert. If you roast the marshmallows over your grill, put some aluminium foil over the grate to keep the melting marshmallow from dripping onto your grill.

Don’t have a tent or even a backyard, for that matter? That’s no reason not to camp out. Just spread out your sleeping bags or even just some blanket in the living room. Turn off the TV, radio and video games. If you have a fireplace, build a fire. Otherwise, order some pizza and pop some popcorn, and you can even make s’mores in the microwave.

No matter where you decide to have your close to the home camping trip, take some time to sit together and talk. Telling stories, whether a campfire is involved or not, is always fun. Your kids’ imagination in creating new stories may surprise you. Don’t forget to tell some handed down family tales.

Above all, think back about your favourite camping memories and recreate them with your kids. Do you remember any good scary stories? Are there any games you enjoyed playing? What’s your favourite card game?
Have some fun with this, enjoy your kids and create some memories.
