WHAT AGE IS THE BEST TO START CAMPING?
Start with these questions?
2- How many people are you camping with that will be helpfull?
3- How comfortable is your child outside or in new environments?
4- Does you child get overwhelmed or over stimulated by new people, things or locations?
5- How comfortable do you feel when you’re in public with an upset child?
6- How did you feel about camping when you were a kid?
7- How do you feel about camping now?
8- Can you throw caution to the wind and have an adventure?
9- How many kids or dogs will you be keeping track of?
10- How patient are you?
LASTLY- If your only job is to watch your child would you be comfortable with that while watching others tend to the camping tasks?
Answering these questions can give you a good idea on what your up against. They can also bring awareness to places you may need to be more patient with yourself and others. If your camping with a group of thoughtful helpers then you will be fine. If your a type A personality like myself with no helpers you may have to be creative with how you approach your trip - and yes that is why I started this blog.
