The romantic notion of arriving at a campsite, rolling out the picnic rug and enjoying a wonderful afternoon with your young children as they bask in the afternoon sun might happen for some but let’s face it, in the real world, camping with young kids needs some degree of careful planning if you want the family to remain sane.
Here is a list of some of the must haves if you want to get the most from an enjoyable camping trip:
Above all I think parents also need to wind down and get into the camping groove. Not everything will go to plan, but that’s all part of the adventure. Mum and Dad probably need as much of a break as the kids so get into that mindset, lose the watch and mobile phone for a few days and just get back to enjoying the simpler things in life and having a great time with the kids – don’t forget the ice creams!

Caravans and holiday parks are not for me, I prefer unique smaller sites where you can enjoy the beauty of the countryside and watch the glowing embers of your campfire. Of course it all needs to be fun...
