Let's Go Camping: Digital Guide for Beginners

7 Reviews
+

 

I've been sharing my family's adventures online for over a decade and I get asked a lot about tools, plans, methods and approach to getting outside, getting outside with kids. Specifically: camping. There's the gear and the fears...what do I *really* need? How do I begin? Will I sleep ok? What about bugs and bears and bumps in the night? 

I love camping so much and want to help you get out into the woods with your kin and sleep under the stars. I've been at it my whole life and poured my heart into this digital guide. 

I got you. 

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

CAMP KIT + GEAR

  • camp kit assembly
  • first aid kit
  • essential gear
  • luxuries + needs
  • tent + bag selection
  • my favorite brands

Planning + Prep

  • kinds of camping
  • choosing location
  • leave no trace
  • group camping

Food + Recipes

  • camp coffee
  • meal planning
  • packing food
  • snack recipes
  • dinner recipes
  • dutch oven cooking
  • dessert recipes

For the Kids

  • the art of boredom
  • camping with babies
  • teamwork
  • nature activities
  • favorite games
  • printable nature journal
  • printable scavenger hunt

Nighttime

  • how to build a campfire
  • firestarter recipe
  • nighttime chores
  • resources

This is a digital PDF download that will land in your inbox shortly after purchase! There are many embedded links within the PDF but you might also choose to print it out.  

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, you also have forever access to our private online space to share your photos, reflections and questions. I’m so excited to see your camping adventures come alive!

First-time camper, ready to hit the trail!

We are planning to take our two children (4 & 2) camping for the first time this summer. I didn't grow up camping so it all feels a bit overwhelming. I REALLY like how this guide is laid out. Very organized and easy to follow. I love the recommendations and all the tips from gear to food to games...so helpful! I feel confident that we can invest in a couple of must-have items up front, come prepared with what already have on hand and simply have fun as a family. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and tips!

Turning Overwhelm into Confidence

Thank you, Nici! This is such a well thought out, wonderfully organized guide. Exactly what I was looking for and needed. My last baby recently turned four and I've been thinking about what new memories I want to make with my "big kids." We camped a little with babies but mostly felt like we brought our whole entire life and still forgot a lot of things. Haha. Now, I feel so much more prepared and EXCITED for all the memories we get to make embarking on this together! The lists are invaluable and the links are so helpful! Thank you for making something that seems a little out of reach feel so exciting for our family!

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)!

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!!
