    Thank you for linking at the Our Favorite Things Link Party at My Life's a Treasure. Your organizing ideas for camping are terrific, nothing worse then getting out into the middle of nowhere and find out your forgot something. I also love your tinfoil meal ideas. They can even work for backyard camping.

    Thank you Karri! The tinfoil meals would work for backyard camping. We also use the hobo pie irons around our campfire.

    We do Guide (Girls Scout) camp like that, but family camping not so much. This is a cool post for ideas, thank you!

    We (my parents and brother and I) love to camp and when my brother and I were younger we went for at least a week every summer up to a gorgeous state park in Oregon. My husband likes to camp too, so we're definitely going to start a tradition when we have kids! Thank you so much for linking this and your camping activity ideas up to The Fun In Functional!

      Jessi, you are very welcome. I have so many wonderful memories of camping as a child and as a married person we rarely went until about 10 years ago and we go 3-4 times every summer for a long weekend. It will be great memories for your children. Enjoy!

    What a great post. If we camped I would be pinning this for sure. But alas, D says he hit his "camping" limit in the Army so it is hotels for us! :-) Thanks so much for sharing on Tout It Tuesday! Hope to see you next week.

    Wow! Thanks to all these suggestions, me and my family do enjoy camping out together and it would be of great help if I could serve different kinds of food and dishes to then, which are easy to cook but yummy at the same time. I do appreciate your effort on this, and I'll make sure to try them out, each and every single one of them. -Sher H.
