The Importance of Family Camping Trips

Family Camping Meals

There are plenty of times where you and your family are planning vacations or trips, but you can’t quite sure decide on what to do. A family camping trip is something you should consider. Yes, you may not enjoy the sound of “camping,” but there are plenty of options Suwannee River Rendezvous can offer to you and your family.

The Benefits of Camping

When camping with your family, you’re creating memories that can be cherished for years to come. Camping allows you to explore and adventure with the ones you love. There are many reasons why families camp, and here are some of the most beneficial:

  • It reduces stress – families deal with daily stresses all the time, whether it has to do with school, work, sports, social situations, or other events. Camping will make your family embrace the wilderness and forget about your everyday stresses.
  • Stronger relationships – you may build stronger relationships with siblings and parents. Sometimes our day-to-day activities don’t allow us to build strong relationships but being out in nature and exploring can rekindle those, especially when it comes to a fishing excursion.
  • Unplugging – unplugging from all unnecessary distractions in our lives can be extremely healthy and beneficial to family members. It forces us to talk and gain a deeper understanding of each other when we aren’t so connected to the internet, TV, or social media.
  • Great Meals – cooking when camping is always a great time because it gets the whole family to participate in the prep and cleanup. Your family can learn new recipes and creative ways to cook. If you’re looking to take a small break from the camping cooking routine, you and your family can always check out the Cookin’ Shack at the Suwannee River Resort and Campground.

Fun and Easy Camping Meals

Campfire frittata recipe

Many unseasoned camping vets have trouble figuring out what to make for camping meals. Some people aren’t prepared before going on a camping trip with the family. We want everyone who is going camping to know that there are easy camping meals for the whole family to enjoy.

Mountain Pies

Mountain pies are extremely easy and fun for the whole family. What you’ll need is a cast iron pie maker, which you can purchase at a very reasonable price at many different stores.

Ingredients:

  • Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Loaf of bread
  • Butter

This can be an easy nighttime snack around the campfire or even a dinner meal for family and friends. The benefit of this meal is that it’s cheap and tastes great when camping. All you have to do is spread butter on 2 slices of bread, add sauce, pepperoni and cheese on one slice, throw in the cast iron pie maker, and cook over the fire. Remember to flip the pie maker!

Campfire Frittata

For a little bit more of a meal, the campfire frittata is a delicious one. This one is an easy quick recipe that will be great for the family waking up in the morning before the daily camping activities. You will need a cast iron skillet to cook the meal in over a fire. Note: a lid is recommended, so you don’t burn the bottom of the eggs before cooking the top.

Ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • Vegetables such as sweet peppers and onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Zucchini
  • Mushrooms
  • Meat (optional): sausage, beef, chicken, ham
  • Cheese (optional)

To make sure you don’t burn the bottom of the eggs is to layer the bottom of the pan with vegetables. Then, pour the scrambled eggs in the skillet on top and add the meat and other ingredients. Use the lid to cover the top and keep an eye out for when the eggs are done.
