We are seasoned campers who get away up to 10 times a year (we are very blessed). We camp in both campgrounds and forestry areas.
We are camping right now. Beautiful quiet park...until this morning, which leads me to my question.
What time do you think is acceptable to let your kids loose (for want of a better word) at a campground? Our rule has always been 7am. If they wake earlier, it's quiet time inside the tent (drawing, games or resort to iDevice if desperate). We've been camping since our eldest was 4 months old so we've been through the toddler stage etc. If they were feral we'd bundle them in the pram and leave others to sleep.
The kids in the van behind us (2 metres away) were up at 5.50am. They were incredibly loud. They were let outside at 6am. Needless to say we were all up at 5.50am.
I know it's just one of those camping things but what do you all think? I can't see why they couldn't have gone to the beach (100m away) for a walk. DH wanted to offer to take them in the hope our kids could sleep a bit longer lol (DD gets feral if up before 6.30am).
