With the school holidays just around the corner, one of the best options for a family holiday is a caravan or camping trip!
Taking a camping trip is not only good for you and your family; it also supports our regional areas, who are suffering from drought and fires. Taking a camping trip to a region, can be an amazing way for your family to have a fun holiday while also supporting these small towns and regions who are doing it tough!
In addition to being an affordable and enjoyable holiday option; camping trips also have a myriad of positive benefits for families.
Caravan Industry Association of Australia’s Real Richness report revealed:
- 75 per cent of campers feel close to their children compared to 63 per cent of noncampers.
- 85 per cent of campers felt close to their spouse compared to 65 per cent of non-campers.
- 93 per cent of campers believe it brings families closer together and 92 per cent of campers believe it is fun for the whole family.
School might be over for another term , but that doesn’t mean the kids have to stop learning. Some of the best lessons take place outside the classroom, and caravan and camping trips lend themselves perfectly to this.
The Real Richness report found significant educational advantages to caravan and camping trips, including allowing children to learn about the environment, to engage socially and even teaching children important life skills.
So there you have it; camping trips could be the perfect way to combine learning, fun, and quality time together as a family this summer!
