Family Camping – From Grandkids to Grandparents

Family Camping, for Release from the Everyday Grind

In today’s highly technical, innovative, and fast paced world, it seems that it is becoming increasingly difficult to afford yourself and your family, what could be referred to as, quality time. Our existence is becoming one that sees itself becoming increasingly complacent, or tricked, with distractions, the distractions of convenience, the distractions of virtual reality and virtual living, the distraction of quick information, the distraction of impatience, the distraction of entitlement.

While one may be fooled into thinking that all of these advancements somehow allow for more time, it could be argued that the more convenience we have, the more disconnected we become. Every once in a while, it is good to bring your family back to each other, and back to nature.

Every once in a while, it is good to escape the distractions! There is no better way to do this than to venture into nature and go camping. The whole family, from grandchildren to grandparents, can be refreshed by an easy weekend excursion to the nearest national park or campground to enjoy nature’s gift.

There is nothing more indescribable or penetrating than mother nature, and there is definitely no substitute. With the numerous advantages that are obvious about the camping, the sunsets, the rivers and streams, beautiful forests, camp fires and marsh mellows for the grand kids, serenity for the grand parents; there are also the unseen advantages. Camping allows for a rejuvenation! It is a timeless activity that allows for a purge of stress. It is fun in the truest sense of the word.

Also, it encourages communication, with each other and with the great outdoors. Camping brings all of the hustle and bustle of every day life into perspective and illuminates what is important, family! Grand parents can enjoy walks, the parents can bask in the sun, and grand kids can splash around in the river.
