Julia Bradbury on Family Camping
Camping isn't just fun − it's one of the most unique holiday experiences you can enjoy. Whether you spend just a few nights under the stars every year, or it's your annual family pilgrimage; the freedom, the bonding and that connection with nature is hard to beat.
As President of The Camping and Caravanning Club and a co-founder of The Outdoor Guide, it's rewarding to share stories, tips and information about the places, the kit and the highlights of exploring and enjoying the Great Outdoors.
Making kids love the Outdoors with great Camping Memories
I’m kept working hard by my duties as a mum of three (I have twin girls aged two and a six-year-old son) so it can require some logistical juggling to ensure we all get our outdoor fix. Like any parent, I want my children to grow up appreciating the value of green spaces, what nature can teach them and what they can take out of it – and all of it making them healthier and happier as they go.
Camping is possibly the best catalyst to spurring children into an outdoor adventure, so encouraging a love for it will help me spark enthusiasm in the next generation of Bradburys. Thankfully there’s great kit available that’s designed to make it easy for parents to take their children on a camping trip, and to make the whole experience memorable.
