Tips for a Fun Family Vacation at Beach Campsites

Here are step-by-step tips on what you can do to ensure a fun vacation for your family at beach campsites.

Find a family-friendly beach campsite.

Family-friendly beach campsites offer recreational areas specifically designed for children such as kiddie pools, playgrounds, and outdoor daycare centers or children’s workshops.

Distance is also a factor. How far is the campsite from your home? If it’s a considerable distance away then do you think your children would be able to bear long hours of travel? Also, consider the location of your actual camping site. Is it accessible by car or do you need to take a hike to reach it? Again, if that’s the latter, such an arduous method of travel might not be ideal for your children.

Prepare beach or water-oriented activities.

Don’t rely on the facilities or amenities offered by beach campsites for your family’s entertainment. Be a bit more creative and think of activities that your family can enjoy on your own. Beach volleyball and Frisbee are easy games to play as a family. Consider also challenging all members of the family to prepare spooky stories to share during your campfire sessions. If everyone’s musically inclined then make sure you have all your instruments with you for jamming sessions at night.

Prepare your menu and train your camp cooking skills in advance.

If you are not sure about the amenities or facilities offered by the resort for beach campers then make your inquiries and plan accordingly. If necessary, you should train at home and familiarize yourself with how your grill operates and what kind of dishes you can prepare for your family when you reach your destination.

Preparing meals is also another way for the family to bond so try to think of recipes that would allow even the younger members of the family to get involved.

Make survival lessons fun.

Vacationing at beach campsites is an ideal time to teach your children to develop a greater appreciation and respect for nature. You could also use the time to teach them the basics of surviving without technology and other modern conveniences, instilling in them values such as discipline and self-reliance at the same time.

For scavenger or treasure hunts, use clues that would teach them to identify edible and poisonous plants and other important flora and fauna – just make sure they only take snapshots of it to avoid violating any campsite policies.
