Camping and caravanning with children can be quite different than camping as a couple or group of adults. It can be just as fun, but there are a few added precautions to keep the whole family out of trouble! Here are 3 reminders to keep children safe while camping.

Remind them about water safety

Most Australian children can swim by a young age, but it’s very important that you teach your children to never go into water without an adult present.

Here’s a video about pool safety, which is very important for children of all ages!

Remind them to wear a proper helmet

This one’s fairly obvious, but help protect your child’s head!

If they’re a bit older and doing more intense sports such as mountain biking, consider investing in a tougher helmet.

Remind them to check in

As soon as your children are old enough to go off with their siblings or in a group, make sure they check in. This maybe be different based on their age, confidence, or street savviness, but make sure it’s a frequency that’s safest for your child and keeps you from worrying.
