Keep pictures of your children on you if they are comping with you. If they go missing, you can show people the photo to help find them quickly. Be sure that you have one on hand if you are far from home so that you are fully prepared.
Toiletries, hats, matches, batteries and flashlights are among the essential items you want to have on your camping trip. No one likes to pee in the dark, so flashlights and matches are really necessary supplies. Hats provide protection against the sun, while a little soap bottle will fend of dirt and grime. Remember that nature is not just like your house. Don’t leave litter lying around your campsite when you leave. Look to leave your site just like you found it. This means that you leave nature as it was intended so that others can enjoy it without trouble, too. Attempt a “jungle breakfast” with the younger members of your camping party. You can tie small food and drink boxes into the trees. Let younger children wake up and hunt for their breakfast. This activity adds a bit more fun to camping.
If you are planning on camping, make sure your campground has an outdoor restroom or area you can use as such. It doesn’t have to be labeled a restroom or a porta-potty. Just make certain you have enough privacy and space to “complete your business”. Double-check that you packed toilet paper or some kind of wipes, unless you look forward to making use of local foliage.
