Research reveals benefits of taking kids on camping trips, a holiday that can also support our regional areas
With the end of the school year in sight and the beginning of the holiday season just around the corner, now is the perfect time to finalise your plans for the upcoming summer break.
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% of campers feel close to their children compared to 63% of noncampers.
· 85% of campers felt close to their spouse compared to 65% of non-campers.
· 93% of campers believe it brings families closer together and 92% of campers believe it is fun for the whole family.
School might be out for the summer, 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, with 97% of campers surveyed believing it allows children to learn about the environment.
94% agreed that camping trips enable children to engage socially and even 69% of non-campers believing camping teaches 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!
