Camping is a great way to spend time with your kids while enjoying the outdoors.
We have never taken Colby and Sawyer camping, but Jay and I used to go before we had kids. We are going to try it as a family for the first time this summer.
First we are going to “camp” in our backyard. We will set up our tent, sleep in sleeping bags, and make smores using our fire pit.
A woman I work with who camps with her children a lot suggested two campgrounds. They are Winslow Park in Freeport, Maine and Camden State Park in Camden, Maine. We are going to go the one in Freeport first since it is closer to our house, but we really want to try the one in Camden too.
I have started thinking about what we should bring. So far my list of things is warm clothes (especially important since we will be camping in Maine), insect repellent, sunscreen, first aid kit, rain gear, games and flashlight.
Does anyone have any suggestions for other campgrounds or any tips for camping with kids?
