Vango's Favourite Day Time Activities from 'Camping with Kids' Book
There is nothing better than the sun shining when you arise in the morning when away on a camping trip! Take advantage of the nice weather and make sure the kids are occupied and having fun throughout the week. Even if the weather lets you down, be sure to pack some waterproof jackets and comfy walking boots to make most of the time you have with the family!
Let the kids lead the excursion!
I know what you’re thinking… this sounds like a recipe for disaster! However, the Camping and Caravanning Club have highlighted some great ways for kids to learn how to be the leader and use resources to ensure you end up at the right location. It is recommended that if the kids are young it’s best to stick to well-marked routes to ensure navigating is simple yet entertaining.
We believe this is a great way for kids to develop decision making skills, make map reading easier and eventually setting them up for Duke of Edinburgh Awards in the future! So why not hand your kids the map, allow them to draw out their favourite route and put the trust in them for the day!

Build a tipi!
A simple yet enjoyable activity for the kids when the weather is on your side! Being the easiest den structure to build means kids at any age can have a go, ensuring there is a nearby forest or walkway to collect the essentials. To keep the tipi assembled, it is easier to build around a thin tree trunk, making sure the branches have something to lean against. Once the frame is built, leaves and twigs can be placed within the gaps to make a compact kids den!
This is a fab idea for when you want to enjoy some quiet time and the weather, ensuring the kids are kept busy. Even if you need to help with the collection of sticks, we’re sure this will keep them entertained for a couple of hours!

Vango’s day time idea!
Vango's HQ is located in Scotland, therefore the teams favourite camping day time activity is hitting the munro’s with a backpack full of goodies and maybe even some compact stools to relax at the top! Set a challenge for the day and get the whole family involved to have a fun-filled task to get to the top by a certain time.
