Looking for some quality time with just you and the kids? Single parent camping is great fun and hassle-free if you have the right equipment.

Gear up for a fun-filled adventure

Solo camping with the kids might seem a little daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.

You just need the right easy-to-assemble equipment that you can set up on your own. Then let the good times roll.

For kids, the campsite is a treasure trove that’s just waiting to be explored. There’s all the open space to run around in.

The excitement of eating breakfast in pyjamas outside. Dinner and marshmallows cooked on a campfire. Stargazing while wrapped up like sausages in blankets. And, of course, sleeping under canvas and waking up to do it all again. 

Put simply, it’s kid paradise. They’ll make new friends with other children, enjoy quality time hanging out with you, and maybe even learn a new skill. 

What you’ll need

Tents
You want a lightweight, easy pitching tent, like the Woodville 3 or 4. These also have a porch area, which is great for muddy wellies. Air tents are the fastest and easiest to pitch, but weigh more.

Sleeping bags
For maximum warmth and comfort, sleeping bags need to be a close fit so it’s important to invest in junior sized sleeping bags for the kids. Self-inflating mats are easy to carry and set up.

Furniture
Blankets are great for picnic-style meals, or try the Dawson Picnic table set, which comes with a table and four chairs that fold down into an easy-to-carry suitcase. 

Accessories
Eating outside is all part of the camping experience and it’s likely you’ll be cooking at the campsite fairly often. The Jimbu stove is a portable, lightweight stove and grill in one, so you can toast and boil whatever you fancy.
