Almost all children love camping (and I think I know why). They can be as loud as they like, get as dirty as they please, and run for miles in open space...without being shooshed or scrubbed or told to sit still.
The wonder of nature is good for children - the fresh air, the golden sun glowing through the branches of trees, the birds dancing through the air, and the leaves crunching underfoot.
Actually, it's good for adults too. I recently told Tim, "I think I usually hear God most clearly when I am in nature, in the shower, and talking to you (not necessarily in that order)."
Since it's been "hotter-than-a-pepper-sprout" (as Tim's grandpa always says) this summer, we've been staying indoors way more than we would like.
When Coleman sent us a great camping kit, the girls were over-the-roof excited. We set up camp in the backyard despite the heat (how could we not?).
