“Listen, Learn and Help”. These are the three simple words that describe the philosophy of Lloyd Jenman and his team in their real estate business. Three simple yet meaningful words that can also be applied even to camping with your children.
One of the best ways to bond with your children and your whole family is through a family camping trip. This is also one way of making them appreciate nature even more. They can discover a lot of things during this trip, small animals, birds, insects, plants and flowers.
This trip would even be better the younger your child is because of their enthusiasm and thrill to experience outdoor activities. Kids don’t mind getting dirty too! This outdoor even could also be a great excuse to take their minds and hands off of their electronic gadgets or computer games.
Once you know that you will have all the attention that you can get from your kids, you can already plan different activities that your kids will enjoy. To give you an idea, you can have games, boating, canoeing, hiking, bicycling, or swimming.
Choose a camping area that has one or all of the activities that your kids would like to try out, but at the same time, safe enough for them. If you research well enough, through online or through friend’s you will find a camp site that provides the activities that you are planning to have with your family.
Once you’re set with the activities, it’s time to plan your meal. Involve your family in the meal planning stage. Ask your kids what they want to eat. At this stage you get to LISTEN to what they want and not cook or prepare what you want. When you include them during the planning stage, they will stay interested and excited about the upcoming event. Plus it is another good way of bonding with the whole family.
After planning for the meal, start packing for your trip. Let your children pack their own things. Make sure that they include their sleeping bag and other personal items. Teach your kids, especially the young ones to return any equipment or supplies they use back in place so it won’t get lost. At this stage, you make them LEARN how to be responsible with their own things.
Have a meeting with your family before you leave your house and let them know what HELP you need from them the moment all of you arrive at the camping site. This way, your family will get to experience how team-work.
