1-Pick out a few campgrounds or camping areas that you think might be of interest to the whole family.
2-Work together to create a menu for the trip.
3-Decide on what kind of camping gear you need.
If you are a group of four or less, a dome tent may suffice. However, if you have five or six in your family, (don’t forget the family pet), you will need a big tent such as the Coleman Weathermaster 3 room tent. This is a roomy tent with two interior rooms and a screened outside room. Some kind of portable cooking grill is also nice. Meals will be cooked a lot more quickly and you can still have a campfire at night.
4-It’s a good idea to plan some activities for the daytime.
5-Take a digital camera and take plenty of pictures.
