I love camping. Not the "pull in the camper and hook up the cable" type camping, but REAL camping. I'm talking tent on the ground and secluded from the world camping. There is just something about living outdoors that gives me peace. There are no cell phones, no emails, no computer, no electricity to plug into; It is the perfect un-plugged destination and a great way to de-stress.
For the past 8 years, camping has been a family tradition. Over those years, we have tested several different venues, and recently fallen in love with the Berkshires. It's secluded, it's quiet, and it accommodates our ever-growing group. Oh, did I neglect to mention we travel in a large pack. What started as a gathering of only a few close college friends, has grown into our own personal family gaming extravaganza!
Let me explain.

Here are some other fabulous reasons why you might choose camping as your next family vacation:
1) It's Cheap! - Our stay costs a whopping $2 a person per night and food comes in at about $4 per meal. Where else can you sleep and eat that cheap?
2) Your Children Sleep Well - In my experience, there is something about nature that helps kids sleep better. My son has never slept so well in his life! He goes to bed when the sun goes down and wakes up when the sun comes up. Nuff said.
I rest my case....
