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.
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!
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.
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.
We hope these tips help in your efforts to keep children safe while camping. Although everyone at the caravan park should be watching out for them, it’s your responsibility to teach them good habits to lessen risk.
