Camping tents – Family size and Larger!

 

One of my best memories is the family reunion camping trip!!!  My mom, brothers & sisters, nieces, nephews & our entire extended family went camping for a weekend of fun, food, family bonding, swimming and sun!!!

It was a wonderful weekend and we really enjoyed ourselves.  Camping and outdoor activities is a wonderful way to bond with your family.  So if you’re wondering how to get your kids and spouse to spend some qualify time together going camping is a great way to do this!

We didn’t have any campers so we all slept in tents and on camping beds of one type or another.  Now this was quite a long time ago so we all just brought our own tents and that is still a great way to camp today.

If, however, you have a larger family to take camping, then looking into getting a larger tent to camp in.  Having a separate tent for your children isn’t always a viable option unless they are older so they have tents that you can add rooms to with privacy dividers so you also can have some privacy from one another.

Large Camping Tent Rooms

There a so many features on the market today!  For instance, you can now get a tent & add additional rooms for the children to sleep in, screened porches so the pets have somewhere to sleep close to you & privacy dividers so you have privacy to change clothes.

Cabin tents do have more room than dome tents, however, whichever one you prefer will be fine to use.  There are some really large dome tents available for larger families or groups.

The best part about a tent that you can add rooms onto is that you can have a small, medium or large tent!  Most of these types of tents have zippers under the window/door flaps & all you have to do is zip on an additional room & put the tent stakes in to complete assembly.

Very Large Camping Tents

I have been researching different locations to find different types of tents as well as different sizes.

Sometimes you need a tent for a very large gathering.  This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to use it just for camping.  They can be used on occasions where the weather can be a factor in how the event that you’ve spent months planning goes.  I don’t know about anyone else but if I’m planning an outside event especially in summer you have to factor in the weather for that day.  Therefore, a very large tent or canopy of some kind may be needed to hold all the people who are there.

The bonus to this type of tent is that if you also have a large family, it will last for years until you maybe need it for graduation parties or family gatherings!!

This size tent is truly an investment so shopping around is a great way to find a deal!

Large Camping Tents Clearance Sale

When shopping for any tent, it is a really great idea to shop around.  You can shop online today & shipping is free & will be at your door in a week or two!  There are some amazing deals to be found, especially in the fall when the summer camping season is over.

I know a lot of people who love to camp after Labor Day weekend because the camping areas are not so crowded & it’s a lot more peaceful.  You also get to see the trees changing colors, the geese gathering to fly south & catch some great fish!!

Dogs like to go camping, especially in the fall, because they are cooler then and it’s more comfortable for them!  I know our dog just loved to go camping & she was a very good camp dog.

Camping Tents for Dogs!

A tent of their own at night with dog beds in it might help them to feel safe like that.  After all, they are part of the family too!

I do believe it works a lot better if it’s attached to the larger tent, however, just in case they start barking or need to get outside in the middle of the night to relieve themselves.

I prefer this because they will hear & feel storms coming faster than you will too.  They have a lot better hearing so having a dog who doesn’t get anxious over every little sound is a big bonus to you.  They do tend to let you know if someone or something is in the area.  Who needs a burgler alarm when you have a dog?  LOL

Camping checklists

As I have said in a previous post, making lists helps me get organized & not forget to take anything with me.

It doesn’t matter if it’s just you going camping or a group of 40, making lists helps to make sure you have what you need to enjoy the camping experience.  After all, not having matches to light the fire or camp stove is pretty important as well as having warmer clothes when it cools off at night!

Being organized & working together helps make the chores of loading, unloading & setting up the campsite fun & enjoyable!!  It becomes part of the entire experience & gives you quality time with you friends & family.

Camping and enjoying the outdoors is an investment in you and your family but the rewards are having a tight knit family with great family values.  It helps children learn how to camp properly without being a risk to nature or themselves & it helps adults to teach their children how to enjoy & respect nature.

Happy Camping!!
