Camping & Backpacking with Children
By Steven Boga
Exploring the great outdoors is one of the most joyful experiences parents can share with their children. It is also an ideal way to stress the importance of respecting wildlife and protecting the environment, leaving kids with valuable insights into the natural world and their place in it.
This Guidebook focuses on helping parents develop a "teaching philosophy" based on getting kids to ask the relevant questions on their own, through the use of educational games, books, and props. The book goes on to describe the nuts and bolts of Trail life, with the main focus always placed on methods for making the outdoor experience enjoyable for both parent and child.
