1. Plan to arrive for set up during daylightAmazing forest sightseeing

If you´re setting up a tent, arrive at camp in the early morning when it´s still nice and cool. Or in the afternoon, but allow enough time to set up the tent before the sun goes down. Depending where you camp, holding a flashlight or lamp as you try to set up tent poles is not easy, more so if it´s your first camping trip with that specific tent.

Make sure your kids are old enough to teach them how to set up a tent. If not, still let them help you with the set up. Basic principle of learning: if they watch, they will start to familiarize with the process of how to do it. They will probably enjoy it more too by doing it along your side, feeling more like your sidekick and less like it´s a chore. If you have never set the tent, practice at home before you try it in the wild. And please, read all the instructions, don´t improvise, more even so if you ignored our first advice and arrived at the campsite by night.
