Let's Go Camping: A Guide for Beginners

{ you will receive a downloadable guide (PDF) plus access to a private discussion board }

- - - 

Do you want to try camping for the first time? (you are definitely hardcore enough)

Do you feel overwhelmed by the list of camping gear you think you need? (you don’t need much)

Would you feel confident going on an overnight or weekend trip with your family? (you really can do it)

Are you nervous about your “basic camping skills”? (it’s a snap with a little help)

Would you enjoy a community of beginner campers to share the excitement of your first adventures? (it helps and that’s why I’ve included an online community with my guide)

I am here for you! I love camping so much and want to help you get out into the woods with your kin and sleep under the stars. 

I am armed with all your camping questions and ready to answer them in Let's Go Camping: A Guide for Beginners! I want to make camping accessible, fun, and meaningful for anyone who wants to give it a whirl. Join me!

So many of us are looking for simple ways to connect more with ourselves, our loved ones and nature. Getting out, unplugging and setting up a cozy home outside is filled with imagination, adventure, laughter, problem-solving, creativity, peace, gratitude and togetherness. Of course there are mosquito bites, sibling squabbles, and rain in the mix too—but you’d be amazed by how much those things fade into the background (and even contribute positively to your story) when you slip into a sunset-lit lake with your kids and then successfully build a campfire before tucking into the tent for storytelling.

In addition to providing the info you need for your first camping trips, I’m also providing a space online to share your photos, reflections and questions. I’m so excited to see your camping adventures come alive!

The guide includes info on gear and basic camping skills. And it’s filled with tips, activities, games, recipes and more. It’s organized into three sections:

Section 1: Plan, Prep and Pack

  • putting together a simple, comprehensive Camp Kit and make getting out the door a snap
  • choosing the right gear for your family
  • my favorite products and brands
  • essential gear tips -- what you need and what you don't. How to choose.
  • first aid kit checklist
  • choosing a campsite that checks the items off your must-have list

Section 2: Day Time

  • setting up a homey, awesome camp
  • responsibility, advocacy and stewardship our public lands
  • 12 of our favorite camp dinner recipes
  • creative activities and games to do with kids including printables for a scavenger hunt and nature journal page
  • tips on meal making, clean up, camp chores
  • guide to making perfect camp coffee
  • navigating fear and nerves regarding animals, bugs, safety etc.

Section 3: Night Time

  • making the sleep situation work best for you and your family
  • building a kickass campfire
  • diy firestarter recipe
  • closing down camp for the night
  • family activities

Ongoing:

  • access to a private online community where you can share your stories, questions and answers
  • regularly posted challenges, prompts, recipes and ideas from Nici
  • hopefully this will eventually be a treasure trove of inspiration and connection as we learn to camp together

THANK YOU!!

We went last weekend for the first time as a family and it was wonderful. I am a seasoned camper, but a bit rusty...and have never been as a MOTHER! Your guide helped to give me the confidence I needed to get out there and set up camp on my own with my kids (my husband met us out there)!

LOVE!

Super informative and enjoyable to read! I come from an experienced camping family and still found this useful and helpful. You can tell Nici poured her heart into this.

Perfect guide to perfect your camping experience

As a novice camper, this guide was most helpful. It lays out the essentials you need to have a successful camping trip. It was obvious I packed too much and made my prior trips more work than needed. The love Nici has for camping was evident in her words and writing of this guide. I’m carrying those and planning a second trip for later this summer. Thanks for your continued inspiration.

One Happy Mama!!

I have camped in the past but not since becoming a Mom (and to be honest the thought of it was pretty intimidating!) This guide has it all and was exactly what I was looking for! And it was super fun for me and my 4 year old to go through it together to make sure we had everything we would need. With Nici’s tips I feel confident that our family will have many camping adventures together to look forward to! Thank you Nici!

I finally feel ready for my first family camping trip!

I'm a beginner camper and have been hesitant to go camping with my family, but I have also been yearning to get outdoors and away "from it all" more and more. Now that I have this trusty guide by my side, I am excited to create my camp kits and purchase my camping gear, cook some meals over the fire and sleep under the stars with my little ones for the first time! Thank you, Nici!!
