Kids’ Camping Gear Gift Ideas

The holiday season is in full swing and we’re already baking cookies, touring the neighborhood Christmas displays and planning our holiday activities with the kids. This time of year is all about the kiddos and family fun. It’s a time for making memories, celebrating family traditions and of course, exploring the great outdoors before the Texas heat creeps back in.

That’s why we’re excited to be partnering with Academy Sports + Outdoors to share one of our favorite family traditions with you. As a family who loves the outdoors and nature, we’re big on picnics during summer, nature hikes in the Fall and of course, backyard camp outs all winter long.

Our family absolutely loves camping…or should I say, glamping? We love to setup a tent in the backyard so that we can enjoy nature, with all of the comforts of home.

What does backyard camping look like for us? It means a fire pit, an adorable tent for the kiddos, kid-friendly camping gear, roasted marshmallows, hot cocoa for days and of course, fresh baked Christmas cookies!

Planning Our Christmas Camp Out

With the help of Academy Sports + Outdoors, we shopped for everything we would need to setup our backyard campsite for the kids. And then we setup everything so we could surprise them when they walked outside.

On our little patio, we set up their tent, camping gear and a fire pit, complete with snacks. It was such a fun moment to watch their little eyes light up in excitement.

We even brought out our little laptop to watch a movie, books to read with the kids and cards so we could play a game together. That way, the kids could have lots of options for our family camp out.

Academy Sports + Outdoors Gift Recommendations!

Our family camp out was one of the most memorable moments of this holiday season. The kids absolutely loved their little tent and all of the fun camping gear we shopped for.

We found everything we could ever need at Academy, including camp furniture, tents, lanterns, cooking gear, survival kits and more. My husband already started putting together a list of items we need to get for future family nights, like a drone, backyard trampoline, kids’ archery set and more.
