I am Kirsty and I am not someone who ever thought I would like camping.

I love my creature comforts  and so camping did not appeal, but with four kids who love being outside it had to be done!

They thrive when we are camping and so I have learnt to love it too!

Over the years I have tried and tested countless family camping activities and used so many different pieces of camping kit and equipment until we got the perfect set up.

Now I love helping others learn to love family camping as honestly it is an amazing way to make memories with your kids
