Tips for Camping with Kids

Family Camping |  Baird, TXCamping is a great way to introduce kids to nature. From stars and nocturnal animals to wild plants and tiny bugs, there is always something outside to captivate the attention of kids. The following are some tips to make camping with kids a positive experience for everyone.

Explain What Will Be Different

Changing the routine can be confusing for kids, who might feel stress or see an opportunity to bend the rules. Clarify what will be the same and what will change. For example, explain that you’ll still be eating together, brushing your teeth, and putting on pajamas before bed; but that you will sleep in a tent or RV and spend more time outside.

Embrace The Messiness

It is no use trying to ensure kids won’t get messy. They will get mud on their shoes, dirt on the hands, and probably some bugs in their hair, too. Just make sure they know where to get cleaned up and try not to worry about it too much.

Give Teens Some Room

With their changing bodies and moods, teens are going through a rough time. Do what you can to give them extra privacy. Still, consider setting reasonable limits on smart devices.

Camping in an RV can help kids feel more like home while you enjoy nature. Visit RVs of West Texas in Baird, Texas, to check out our travel trailers, fifth wheels, and other family-friendly RVs.
