Camping with the extended family
Camping with the extended family is one of the best summer vacation ideas I can think of to have fun and bond with extended family members. This is something that our family has done since I was a child, and each year memories are added to enrich our lives.
When I was a child, I could not wait for school to let out for the summer. I knew we would leave for Mount Pisgah within a few days and I was just so excited. Our family would all gather on top of the mountain and enjoy the summer days as a whole family.
Camping on the mountaintop is always one of the best summer vacation ideas you can do. Think of all the hiking you can do the wildlife you will see and the peacefulness of nature almost unbroken.
All you need is a tent, coolers for your food, blankets, and other personal items. You can take a puzzle book or board games for when it is raining but get out there and enjoy nature on your camping trip.
This is perfect for adults or families with older children and it is relatively cheap. The memories you will create are priceless and it good for the whole family to be out in nature.
Camping with extended family by the lake or other body of water is also nice. This one is perfect for families with children of all ages as long as the children are supervised. Please also take the time and educate your children about water safety before allowing them to run loose.
