The Do's and Don'ts of a Family Camping Trip

29th July 2016

DO: Make sure you arrive at the caravan park as early as possible – you don’t want to be setting up your tent or van in the dark! DON’T: Let the kids set up their tent by themselves- that never ends well. DO: Bring torches and spare batteries, you’ll always need them. DON’T: Bring the iPad. Just don’t. DO: Practice putting up the tent before you leave home – it will make it much easier when you arrive. DON’T: Forget the tent pegs or hammer! DO: Bring all your beach and water sport gear, spending all day at the beach is what camping is about! (Don’t worry if it’s not beach weather – just take a dip in the indoor heated pool and spa!) DON’T: Worry that you aren’t eating enough vegetables- they weren’t meant for camp kitchens and you know it. DO: Make sure to pack some games for if it rains and you get stuck in your tent for a day. (Ask at reception if you do forget – we’ve got plenty). DON’T: Just stick to your campsite. Go out and explore the surrounding towns and see what else is around the area, I’m tipping you’ll find a reason to come back again! DO: Relax and have fun!! DON’T: Stress if you do forget something – we are here to help!
