Camping and Kids – We Took Ours Outdoors

At first glance, you might not think our homeschooling family was comprised of avid campers. We have a couple of asthmatics in the group (including our second grader) and a couple with serious allergies (the second grader again). That doesn’t usually make for happy camping, but we’ve found that with a bit of planning, we can let our kids enjoy the great outdoors too. We try to camp in the spring and fall, when the temps aren’t too high. We also shoot for sites with electricity in case we have to use our youngest son’s nebulizer. Even with all of that, it’s been an amazing experience and the kids are certainly better off for it! Me on the other hand? I enjoy seeing my kids outside and having fun. I don’t dislike being outdoors…but my idea of “roughing it” is a Motel 6 instead of a Marriott! 😉
