Getting children to sleep after an exciting day of camping can be a real challenge – especially after eating too many smores around the campfire! Here are a few quick tips to get your children fast asleep.
As mentioned in the “Always Bring Books” post, these are key for maintaining a similar bedtime routine to at home. Bring one book that you also have at home, and several others that only get read when camping for a special treat.
Divide the Bunk
If your kids share a bunk, divide the space by hanging a sheet from the bunk end pole. This helps prevent one child from keeping up the other child. It’s also very helpful in the morning to prevent one from waking up the other.
