I've been sharing my family's adventures online for over a decade and I get asked a lot about tools, plans, methods, and approaches to getting outside, and 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.

Why I made this guide.

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!
