This might be hard to believe so you had better brace yourself, but did you know that it can be tremendously rewarding for families to give the video games and television a rest and get back to nature? Of course, the best way to do this is packing up the family, find a park or vacation rental, and spend a few days camping in Ohio cabins.
After being tremendously popular during the 1950s and 1960s, few people planned family camping trips during the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. However, recent U.S. tourism statistics show that camping is undergoing something of a renaissance in recent years, as approximately 3 million people decided to go tent, RV, or cabin camping in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina, Ontario, and all of the other states and provinces between 2010 and 2012.
Besides taking a much needed break from technology and actually talking to each other face-to-face, what are the other benefits of family camping? Well, first of all 60% of all children who go camping end up trying something that eventually becomes a hobby. Also, we mustn’t forget the fact that children love cooking out over an open fire; but it is important to remember that adult supervision is always needed before allowing any child under the age of 12 to go near any fire source.
While all of that stuff is great, the best part of a family camping trip is the togetherness that family members feel with one another. Since it is so difficult for families to remain close knit these days, a family camping trip can be the perfect way to strengthen old bonds and to forge new ones. Perhaps that is more important than anything else when it comes to family camping.
