Start kids camping young....

They start kids camping young, here in the South! Actually, it's an outdoor art exhibit, but forum members might want to share how they accommodate little ones while camping or share "we can laugh about it now" camping-with-kids failures.

Our 4 girls all started camping within the first year of their lives. The youngest started backpacking when she was just 4 years old. They all still tent camp except one that just bought a sticky. The youngest is 43.

Hah. My daughter's first camping trip was 2 months before we got to give her the first kiss.

I took my son on camping trips before he was even out of the womb
He went camping all of his years. Recently spent 2 years full time in an airstream traveling around the country. Not a bad way to spend his midlife crisis.

When I was a little kid, we went camping every year at San Clemente Beach State Park, for about two weeks at a time. I can clearly remember hot dogs cooked on the beach with a one burner Coleman stove, the hot sand against my bare feet, running on the beach, and the cold Pacific Ocean. We watched the sand crabs, dug in the sand, collected shells, and played in the waves.

It progressed to camping in Death Valley and hiking to old mines, or spending time in the Redwoods. Then to dirt bike trips in Mojave, where we'd ride till we were half way out of gas and then head back, to go again.

Lots of fond memories of finding a lost cabin, exploring mining towns, being lost in a flash flood, camping with my coyote in Death Valley, visiting incredible hot springs, exploring an aircraft target range on my bike, and hiking the desert canyons near Keeler, where orchids are growing in the desert, fed by dripping water. Then the mystery of an abandoned railroad station near Amboy, and finding a letter talking about setting up that very station, so many years before.

Camping is a wonderful way of life for a kid and I'm glad I was exposed to it. Now, I go in a trailer and spend time in the open spaces, in comfort. It opens the door to higher elevations, longer seasons, colder weather, deliberately going to where the flash floods will occur, and staying out longer.
