Glamping in the Community Herald Prt. 5: Lessons in nature and connecting with your inner-crafter

Hearld 5Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a six-part series about camping in style.

Camping with kids creates lifelong memories for a family. Some recollections are not always glampy for the adults (packing, unpacking, hauling, pitching), but we’ll bet they’re always amazing for the children.

Hopefully our glamping tips inspire a happy adventure for all (even if ‘happy camper’ isn’t in your vocabulary).

From buntings to table linens here’s a few crafting ideas to glamp your camp. And don’t forget the mini-glampers in your family. We love nature-inspired ideas to keep them busy and connecting children with nature is probably the most gratifying and important aspect of camping. Putting away tech and teaching simple earth lessons will last a lifetime, when the lessons are married with a family holiday experience.  Click for full story.
