Take a Hike

If the closest you’ve come to pitching a tent is building a pillow fort with your toddler, then check out our June issue’s  guide to camping with kids. It’ll give you tips and tricks for making getting out in the great outdoors easy and a blast. And if you can’t afford a vacation this summer, but are sick of staycations, then a camping trip could be the perfect escape. If you’re ready to go wild, this gear will help you get back to basics.

  • The REI sleeping bag’s space adjuster allows the snug sleeper to grow with your child.
  • Camping is all about unplugging from the daily whirl, but it can be safe to keep your cell on. Keep the juices flowing with a pocket-sized solar power, from cableorganizer.com.
  • Bring baby on board for hikes with the Kelty FC 1.0 carrier.
