Happy Campers 101

If there is one classic outdoor activity that a whole family can always engage in, camping will always come out as the answer. The idea alone is exciting enough to entice anyone’s imagination. Camping with the family is often better than going with friends, and once you become a parent, you will realize that you have to experience this activity with your kids before they start going off with their own circle of friends. If you haven’t gone family camping before, then there could many questions on your mind right now. Should you do it within your town or city? Or would it be better to try camping outside your city? What to do if the kids become bored or what if they get too scared to sleep out at night? These questions should be answered before you head off.

We all love camping in places like St George, we also know that when camping it’s always nice to have at least a day or two in a nice comfortable hotel room with clean sheets and a shower. So after camping make certain you look to us for some real relaxation. 

Practice Camping in your Backyard

One of the best ways to know for sure that your kids are ready to temporarily live outdoors is to set up an overnight camp in your own backyard. This is a good way to ascertain if your kids can sleep inside the small space of a tent.

Give Your Kids Their Own Set Of Equipment

To make your kids like the idea of sleeping inside a tent, it would be better if you can give each one of them their own set of gear. One headlamp and one sleeping bag for each kid is a good way to start.

Do Not Ever Bring Your Kids’ Electronic Gadgets

If you want your kids to really enjoy living with nature, you shouldn’t give into the temptation of taking any gadget with you. It can be tempting, especially if you are worried that your kids might get too bored to even get out of the tent. But if you are going to give them their gadgets, you might as well just stay at home.

Let Your Kids Know That There is Nothing to be Scared of at Night

Ghost stories shouldn’t be a part of your whole camping trip. You need to keep your kids happy and comfortable, and that means they should be able to enjoy the day and the night as well. It is also important to educate them about the strange night noises, as well as the possible eerie silence. Make sure you explain every single sound that they will hear like twig crackling, owl hooting and any other unfamiliar outdoor sound. The important thing to make sure is that, they know for sure that there is nothing to be scared of.

Get Advice and Recommendations from the Professionals

It is advisable to camp in the right camping grounds. This is especially true if you are taking your kids with you. Although the idea of going off to unfamiliar grounds can be really tempting, you should always consider the comfort of your kids first. Campsites offer amenities that the bush does not. Campsite are also always located a short distance from main lodges, so that campers can always feel safe knowing that they have somewhere to go in case of emergencies.

If you have never gone camping, the best thing you can do is to ask someone who has. Learn from their experience and ask for tips on how to pack or for tricks on how to keep your kids happy. It is not a crime to admit ignorance. It is better to have someone else teach you than commit mistakes that could put your kids in danger.

Camping should be all about having fun. If you are going with your kids, it should be about enjoying that precious time with them before they start making their own circle of friends.

THE PBR IS COMING TO TOWN!

pbr 2

Buckle up. The PBR IS COMING TO TUACAHN MAY 3RD! This is not a rodeo. We don’t rope calves, and we don’t chase barrels. This is bull riding, and the first rule is just to stay alive. The Professional Bull Riders was created in 1992 when a group of 20 visionary bull riders broke away from the traditional rodeo scene seeking mainstream attention for the sport of professional bull riding. The combination of raw sport and quality entertainment has propelled the PBR to strong growth in live attendance as well. The PBR attracts over 1.5 million live event attendees each year with its multi-tiered event structure. Professional bull riding is a fierce, rough, and grueling sport with roots deeply imbedded in American culture. It’s America’s original extreme sport.
