Group Camping

June 10, 2014

Multi-family camping trips can be a lot of fun. Similarly aged children help keep everyone happily occupied. Here are some tips to make your first group camping experience a great one.

For example, I’ve found that the key to camping with this many kiddos is to never leave anyone out. If you’re going to be fishing, have enough fishing poles for everyone!

Board games are always a great activity – allowing both families to collect in a single camper for some bonding. It also helps the kids wind down at night and get ready for bed.


Our first group camping trip was a wonderful success. The view wasn’t half bad either!

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.
