I have 4 boys who are now adults. We started camping when they were kindergardeners and we still enjoy camping together to this day!! I also have many years experience leading outdoor adventure and camping programs for kids ages 6-18. Some of the key things I have found over the years are that boredom and being hungry are your keys to a successful experience; keep em busy and feed em good. Plan several activities to do. Let them help with chores eg. collecting firewood. For younger campers, crafts, coloring books, games etc. Board games, playing cards, UNO are good for age 8+ during bad weather. Good luck and I hope you enjoy this tradition as much as we have!
