We are taking our 1.5 year old for the first time in a couple of weeks. We chose a backcountry location that is only a mile walk in from our car and ten miles from a hotel in case we have to abandon ship at any point. I think our expectations are fairly low for sleep but think it will be a great experience regardless. Have you had them hiking yet by any chance? We kind of started there and made sure he was good with being in a carrier. Now that we know he loves it, it feels like the right time to try a tent camping trip. It definitely won’t be an ultralight gear sort of trip. Good luck, I hope you get your kids camping soon!
