Oh my gracious, are you kidding? Get kids out into nature and enjoy God’s creation, not more people that only want to be where it is perfectly comfortable and it is “easy”. And, that is what is wrong with these generations.
I’m sorry, but this topic specifically states that it’s for people who DO NOT LIKE nature! I searched for this type of post, because my neighbors’ children are allergic to many trees & flowers & grasses, so I thought I’d set up a tent & all the fixin’ns in my garage for them. It’s not nice to be so judgemental, when you don’t know everyone’s struggles.
I am so thankful for your ideas!! Our first ever tent camping overnight experience with the kids got rained out and they were sooooo disappointed. We decided to camp inside instead and these ideas allowed us some wonderful family time and memories. Thank you.
To be honest, I can’t imagine how you can not love nature. This is the most beautiful thing that can be, and it is worth going with family or friends for a holiday with tents only once – you will definitely love it. It is only important to choose the right tent for your comfort, you can read more about How to choose a 4 season tent here
