Modern day camping with Eurocamp

Summer’s here (for those of us in Northern hemisphere!) Who fancies a camping holiday?  Here Eurocamp explain how they make camping with the kids easy and fun…


Camping in comfort for young families

When you’ve got a young family it’s difficult to know where to take them when it comes to booking a holiday. What’s a suitable location? Will it have everything I need? And will there be enough to entertain my six-month old baby and two-year old toddler?

Perhaps camping wasn’t top of your list, since it conjures up images of lonely tents in fields being battered by the wind and rain – hardly suitable for little ones! But it’s not always about uncomfortable beds, draughty sleeping bags and eating cold food out of tin cans.

Camp abroad and travel light

A modern camping experience abroad, which you get at Eurocamp.co.uk, is all about freedom and fun. There are no lonely tents in fields. Accommodation is ready and waiting for you, so there’s no need to pack your tent – or any camping paraphernalia whatsoever, come to think of it! That’s good news if you’re travelling by car and trying to squeeze everything in the boot.

You can stay in lodges, bungalows, apartments or even luxury mobile homes. There’s no need to share WC facilities with others on site as each home has its own toilet, bathroom and fully equipped kitchen – plus things like high chairs, baby cutlery, baby baths, changing mats, safety gates, cots and bed rails are included. You have everything you need to travel light.

Beautiful locations and facilities

Your camping accommodation is pitched in its own area and on one level, so there are no staircases or balconies to worry about. They’re all located in beautifully maintained parks with facilities like swimming pools, spray playgrounds, slides and play areas on site, which will entertain children of all ages.

Since these are well established and modern campsites across France Italy and Spain, they’re not situated off the beaten track. All are easily accessible and close to main routes, so whether you’re travelling by plane, train or car, you’ll be able to get there with minimum fuss.

All inclusive holidays at expensive hotels can dictate what you eat and when, which can be a problem if you have young children who are fussy eaters. Since camping is naturally self-catering, it gives you the flexibility to eat when you want – but if you don’t fancy doing the cooking (it’s a holiday after all!) and the kids are adventurous eaters, then there are cafés and restaurants on site.

Keeping the kids entertained

Depending on which campsite you choose to stay at, you’ll find specially run clubs for children of all ages. These free mini fun station parcs are designed for pre-school children aged six months to five years. They include indoor and outdoor activities like face painting, treasure hunts and nature trails – and there’s even a library, with picture books, puzzles and toys to keep the little ones busy.

In addition to that, you’ll find swimming clubs for children aged 1-5 years, which is a great way to help toddlers gain confidence in the pool. And for children between the ages of 3 and 6 there are cycle lessons to help them master the basics of bike riding!

It’s now become easier than ever to take babies and toddlers camping! You have the flexibility to arrive when you want, and stay as long as you want. You get the full outdoor experience but with the comfort and freedom to relax. It’s a great way to spend time with the family and your little ones will never get bored!
