Family Camping Vacation

A family camping trip puts you back in touch with nature. The warmth of the sun on your skin, blue skies with puffy clouds, beautiful sunsets and gazing at the stars at night. Camping can be part of an activity such as Whitewater Rafting, where you camp on a beach each evening with a scrumptious dinner prepared by your professional river guide. Whitewater rafting is a great Family Camping Trip.

Camping is the rest and relaxing after a day of activity whether fishing, hiking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting - you get the idea. Outfitters usually provide you with the basics of what you will need such as a sleeping bag & pad, tent, eating utensils etc. All you need to do is provide is your outdoor camping clothes, hat, flashlight, sunscreen, personal gear such as your toothbrush and a good attitude. Outfitters will provide you with a list of what to bring for their trip. A camping trip is so much more comfortable today with folding chairs, warm campfires, cold drinks and some outfitters even offer wine or beer tasting, live music, geology and naturalist lectures.

If the weather changes on your camping trip it is best to layer your clothes. Your base layer should be a fabric that will wick away moisture and keep you warm. Add insulative layers as needed and top it off with a protective layer to shed wind and rain such as a parka with a hood.

When camping don't disarrange the scene, move a lot of rocks, dig, etc. Use tents or tarps. Never cut boughs for poles, or put nails in trees. Don't leave micro garbage behind. Don't harm fragile vegetation. Climbing the bank of a river destroys vegetation, muddies the water and accelerates erosion. This action can have serious consequences for the wildlife which inhabit this riparian area.

Remember to bring sun-screen on your next family camping trip!
