Always Bring Books

March 10, 20151

From bedtime routine to entertainment during a rainstorm, books are a cheap and easy entertainment option for children while camping. Always, always have books with you on a camping trip!

We try to keep “special” stories in the camper to make the experience unique.

I've been camping regularly since I was a kid, from quick Cub/Boy Scout trips to week-long backpacking trips and everything else in-between. We got a popup camper when our kids were 1 and 3 years old to enjoy more time outdoors together alongside a few conveniences like heat and running water. Since then, we've spent over 75 nights together as a family in our popup camper. I've learned a lot about the intricacies of a popup tent camper during this time and love to share those lessons here for the benefit of others.
