Trailer Park Unschoolers

Because you don't need to be rich to unschool!

Tomorrow We Leave for the Fairy Fest!


There’s so much to do when getting kids ready for camping. It’s so much more than just packing. You have to prepare them just as much as you have to prepare your gear.

Maybe it wouldn’t be such a big deal if we camped more. The kids would be used to it. I always wanted to get to that point, but that means time, money for gear, and someplace we would like to camp, none of which we really have right now.

When I was a kid camping was a big deal. We would pack everything up the night before. The next morning we would start out bright and early. Along the way we would hit some entertainment. We went to all kinds of places, from Six Gun City (a wild west history park) to the Polar Caves. We would play while my patents set up the tent. The next two days were usually spent camping while my dad played his summer volleyball tournament. The last day was another early morning. We packed up and went somewhere like Story Land or Mount Washington. We always came home completely exhausted, but felt it was worth it.

My kids are getting a little taste of that. They’re excited. They’re ready to go. I have a feeling they’ll barely sleep all weekend. It’ll be fun.

With four kids, who has time for much? We spend a lot of time together, which translates to a lot of knitting time for me when we hang out. We've been trying to get back to our unschooling roots. We watch a lot of videos, play a lot of games, and pay attention to the things we notice in our everyday life. It's been quite the big adventure!

  1. You must be from NH, or somewhere nearby 🙂
    Camping is a lot of work, but it’s a great thing to do with kids. Have fun!

  2. I used to love camping with the kids. In hindsight, I really wish we’d done it more. I hope y’all are having a blast.
