The sun is shining and I’m getting that itch to plan a camping trip. I know some of you may groan at the thought of camping in the wilderness, with communal showers, sharing a tent with three other people (stinky boys to be exact). But our family camping trips are always filled with the greatest memories.
Our children get to see another part of Canada that is not just museums, malls, city streets, and amusement parks. Our children are fortunate to experience nature! They have viewed the whales from the top of the cliffs of Grand Manan Island, watched seals venture off into the water at Perce Rock, and hiked to the top of peaks to enjoy the views of the Rockies. It is these experiences which help them to appreciate nature and grow to become confident young men.
As soon as the warm weather hits, my husbands spots the glint in my eye, and knows I’m planning our next outdoor adventure. It’s the little things in camping that I love, stories by the fire, the thrill of sleeping under the stars, and watching my curious little men explore the great wilderness. It’s not very often they get to stare face to face at a buck or chase an unsuspecting mole. It’s these adventures which make them appreciate their world and have a deeper love for nature.
