We’ve been camping with our son starting out when he was an infant, then a toddler, preschooler and now as a kindergartener! We’ve seen it all and are passing our knowledge of camping with babies and kids on to you so you can navigate family camping trips with confidence.

At Camping Critterz, our mission is to empower and inspire you and your families to embark on your first camping adventures with confidence, connection, and a deep appreciation for the natural world.

If you’re nervous about camping with kids, you’re not alone. We were nervous the first time we took our little one camping, but babies are very portable and once you get the basics figured out, camping with kids is quite easy.

We believe that the magic of camping lies not only in the serene landscapes and starlit nights but also in the bonds forged and memories created among loved ones.

Our purpose is to guide parents through the transformative experience of introducing their children to the joys of outdoor exploration, ensuring that every moment spent in nature becomes a cherished part of their family legacy.

Beginning camping with your kids feels like you have to pack a lot of things. As they get older the amount of gear you have to bring goes down, but the more activities you have to plan. It’s a constant trade off.

Whether you’re seeking practical advice, heartwarming stories, or expert recommendations, our website is your ultimate resource. Discover the joys of disconnecting from screens and reconnecting with each other while surrounded by nature’s splendor. Let’s create memories that will last a lifetime, one campfire tale at a time.
