Many people are planning on going on vacation this summer but they do not know where to go. If you’re looking for an inexpensive vacation that is fun for the whole family you might want to consider taking them on a camping trip for the weekend. Camping is something that everybody does from time to time and it is a great thrill to bring your children to teach them the values of nature and just to have fun. Here are some helpful ideas when you are going camping that you might want to incorporate so that you can save money but yet still have fun at the same time.
Camping does not have to be very expensive as long as you don’t make it so. You can purchase a campsite for the weekend depending on where you camp for right around $10.00 a night. This is fairly inexpensive because it will only cost you around $30.00 for the whole weekend. Where can you spend money like that and stay for entire weekend without spending more than $30.00? Call around to the campsites in your area to find out if you’re getting the best deal possible and this way you will know how much it is going to cost you for the entire weekend.
The next thing that you have to decide is what food you are going to bring. You want to be able to bring some food that is great for a big meal but also some snacks things such as Graham crackers and marshmallows. This will give the children something to do at night when everybody’s sitting around the campfire. Also when you are bringing food you want to make sure that you can cook some things over an open flame instead of bringing a camp stove that is going to cost you more money.
