If you are looking for a new family tradition this year, why not try glamping? Glamping is the outdoor version of camping. It’s luxurious and less stressful than traditional camping because you have access to electricity, running water, toilets, and showers!
There are many different types of glamping experiences, but today, this post will be focusing on tips for families with children who want to start this family tradition. Dive in!
If You Are Going to Cook, Stick to One Pot
Cooking while camping is a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. Stick with one pot for the entire cooking process, and you will save yourself from having to clean up a mess in your tent at night.
Ensure that you stick to one pot if you are cooking anything in the camp. You will find that this helps to make things much easier for yourself and your tent mates and conserves water! Cooking is one of those activities that can be beneficial if everyone pitches in with doing their part.
Enjoy Your Tent/Glamping Site
The first thing you need to do is enjoy your tent/glamping site. You got to have a good time with everyone, and it can be difficult when the tent gets blown over by wind or if there are too many bugs in the bed.
There will be plenty of time for sightseeing later on, but right now, relax and take advantage of where you’re at! Furthermore, you can decide to glamp on your roof. Ensure you use the best roof top tents and enjoy the experience.
Learn as You Go
Learning to live in nature is an adventure. You might find that you can’t use the kitchen for a while because of lack of ingredients or if there’s no electricity, but at least it’ll give your family something new and exciting to talk about when they get home.
It would help if you also learnt how to do everything on-site before starting – don’t buy things like soap, towels, and shampoo, until you know what kind works best with camping conditions.
Be as Creative as Possible
Being creative is key to glamping. You are outside with no walls, so the sky is your limit. There will be countless opportunities for you and your family to have fun in the great outdoors without worrying about being bored because you can’t do anything that was inside before.
Besides, glamping is a great opportunity to be creative with your environment, especially if it’s your first time.
Pack Plenty of Clothes
Bring some extra clothes and make sure you have enough for all of the family members going along. If there’s any room in your car after packing up food supplies, bring an easel or canvas and paint kit (or other art stuff).
You can also try making campfires at night, if possible, instead of using candles or lanterns; just remember not to build them close to trees!
In conclusion, there is no one way to experience the outdoors. If you feel adventurous and want to experience something new, try camping or glamping for your next vacation!
