Hello, do you have kids? I have four kids and last year, I decided to take them camping for the first time. My name is Dale and I believe that children should be allowed to experience the great outdoors when they are young enough to really appreciate it. However, I didn't expect the trip to be as difficult as it was. I didn't pack things which were suitable for children so I had the wrong food, the wrong sleeping bags and I didn't bring enough flashlights the little ones were soon afraid of the dark. When I got back, I sought some advice from my sister who is a family camping pro and she gave me lots of great advice.
