Tips to Keep Your Children Engaged during a Glamping Trip


Tips to Keep Your Children Engaged during a Glamping Trip

You enjoyed camping when you were a kid, spending so much time outside and toasting marshmallows late. When you were young, you couldn’t wait to wake up in a tent, stroll across a field in the middle of the night, and eat baked beans. 

However, as you’ve gotten older, pitching tents and eating baked beans may have lost their appeal. Unless you want your kids to grow up never experiencing them, you’ll need to get over your reservations about camping.

What do you do when the kids want to go camping but the idea of nights spent on the hard ground, surrounded by mosquitoes, is not your idea of fun? Well, you can go glamping- or glamourous camping. It gives you all the camping fun but in a neat package like you’re in a luxurious resort.

If glam camping sounds like something you’d like to try, then here are a few hacks to make it fantastic.

1. Think Outside the Box

Glamping is the perfect opportunity to unleash your creativity. While you’re out and about in the great outdoors, you can design games and activities that your children will love. Why not try den building? With plenty of natural materials, children have many options for constructing shelters and secret camps. 

The weather may be cold a few times a year, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy yourself. Go on, just let loose!

2. Pack Plenty of Clothes

You’ll need a lot of clothes for your glamping trip no matter what time of year it is. Because the kids will be outside for most of the day, they will undoubtedly become wet, muddy, and dirty. We all know how unpredictable the British weather can be, so make sure you have clothing to cover all scenarios.

Even on the hottest day of the year, it will get cold once the sun goes down, so you’ll need to get the fire pit going and put on lots of layers to keep warm if you want to spend time outside your tent after sunset.

3. Stick To One-Pot If You’re Going to Cook

Many glamping tents include fantastic culinary capabilities, allowing you to prepare more than just baked beans and toast. While you should utilise your wood-burning stove, remember that you are on vacation and should not spend hours preparing family dinners.

4. Select an Excellent Location

It would be best if you determined where in the UK you wish to glamp. You don’t want to drive to your glamping site only to discover that it’s in the middle of nowhere and there’s nothing for the kids to do nearby. Make sure that beaches, zoos, and water parks are within a short distance of your glamping site.


Glamping is becoming more and more popular. It is a great way to enjoy the outdoors without the hassles of traditional camping. It is perfect for young families and people of all ages. Why not try it now? So, get up and get out. You and your family will have a great time together.
