Any Words of Wisdom? Camping with Kids

We’re preparing for our first camping trip in nearly three years.

The last time we went camping, Katie had just turned one.

She had the most amazing time.

She worked up a serious thirst…

…got truly dirty for the first time in her short life…

…greeted her first dawn by the campfire…

…and learned the simple joy of hunting for rocks and collecting them in a bucket.

We couldn’t have asked for an easier trip. She was totally in her element. We sat and watched her in complete amazement.

This time?

We’re adding Matthew to the mix and I’m a little afraid.

We’re prepared to chase him all over the campground, because when we call out for him to stop, he just giggles and runs faster.

I’m hoping that those of you who have camping experience can help us with something.

If you have camped with kids, what are three things that we MUST bring with us?

What tips would you share on camping with small children?

Are there any tricks that we should know?

We’re going to need all the advice we can get!
