When I was in high school and college, I did a lot of camping. My best friend’s family went on a lot of camping trips and invited me along. Since we live in North Carolina, we were only a few hours away from the beach and from mountains, so there was never any shortage of great places to visit.
I have such wonderful memories of the times we spent camping. My friend and I would stay up, whispering and giggling by the campfire late into the night. During the day we’d hike in the mountains or hang out on the beach all day.
Now that we have three children of our own,my husband and I want to create similar memories for my children too. We want them to experience the outdoors and enjoy camping as much as we do.
To get ready for a recent camping trip to the beach, we headed to Kohl’s for gear. I had no idea that Kohl’s had camping gear and was thrilled that one of my favorite stores for clothes and home goods also carried such great camping supplies.
With everything from tents and tarps to coolers and sleeping bags, Kohl’s has everything you need for a family, friend or solo camping trip. There are all levels of gear too – for the most basic tent camping and more advanced supplies for expert campers.
For our trip, we picked up tents, chairs, cooking gear, a backpack, sleeping bags and a cooler. We even got an awesome toddler travel/camping high chair that’s perfect for our little one!
During the day, we took the cooler and chairs from the campground over to the beach to enjoy our afternoons by the ocean. It was great to have such nice gear to make the trip more enjoyable.
The family had a great time on our camping trip and we’re already looking forward to planning more trips this year. We have all of the basic camping gear now, thanks to Kohl’s, and love that it will be easy and inexpensive to take lots of family trips in the future.
