Using glow sticks is one of the camping hacks that our kids really enjoy. Glow sticks are a great way to provide a little light in your tent that isn’t too bright for sleeping. Just hang one or two in your tent and you will have just enough light to see if you need to get up in the middle of the night.

2. Arrive before dark

Arriving at your campsite before dark will make things much easier. Setting up a tent and other necessities become a lot harder when you try and do it in the dark. It’s a good idea to plan and arrive at least 2 hours before sunset. That should give you enough time to set up your gear and get settled before it gets too dark.

3. Place dry firewood under your car

It’s a good idea to place dry firewood under your car so that if it rains it will remain dry. There is nothing worse than waking up on a cold morning and not having any dry wood to start a fire. Keeping wood under your car will ensure it’s always try and ready to use for your next fire.

4. Use fans inside your tent
