The Joy of Camping

Tent 10.27.09
I have met a lot of people over the years who don’t like to camp. I often hear. “I have to have a roof over and a pillow under my head.” Some simply say, “Yuck.”

I am fortunate that my kids not only think camping is fun, they can’t wait to go again. Sure, it’s a lot of work, but to me, the rewards are worth the hassle.

In the top photo, the kids wrestle on our air mattress in the tent. Our kids play with a dog on the beach trail in the second (on the jump.) In the third, the kids explore a sandstone wall. In the bottom photo, my wife Anne hugs the kids in front of the campfire as the sun sets behind them.

    I grew up camping in the mountains of Colorado as a child and loved it. Now as and adult, I go camping with my family and I agree it is a great experience. You can go places camping that you never could in a hotel. You experience the natural world in a way that very few people do. And, most importantly, without the distraction of hitting all the tourist traps and theme parks you get to focus on what’s really most important…the relationships!

    Having some quality time with your family is one of the great ways of making your kids feel how special they are and to make your relationship closer. Camping is such an exciting and fun activity that you can actually do together with your family. You can also run around your community, go to beautiful tourist spots or even just watch movie together can make you all closer and well-bonded as well.
