Do you like to camp?

I am going with my daughters girl scout troop and I am amazed at how many parents, MEN AND WOMEN, who won't go camping. "too many bugs, too dirty, too cold, too yucky" were some of the reasons given. I mean, really??? I guess I grew up camping and we go all the time so it is no biggie to me. Is there anyone else that likes to camp? I do both, tent and camper camping. :)

  • I love camping :) and I think it's really fun for kids. Both of my husbands brothers married women who hate to camp. I don't think they've ever even been actually... but I love it!

  • we are "gung-ho" campers lol, we love camping, usually we go camping every year for our vacation, we always tent camp but over the years we have become pretty organized at it as to setting up, cooking, etc, if you know what you are doing you always have fun, you are never dirty, and it is never yucky

  • I love camping. I lived at a camp site for an intire summer. No lie! For like 4 months straight! It was awesome! Ofcourse that was way before kids and marriage lol. I am planning on going either the weekend after next or the one after that. I have to go one more time before the season is over!

  • We went "camping" when we were a trailer. lol.

    We slet in a tent a few times, but my sisters dad was always scaring me. Now, I'm afraid of the woods. I wont go "camping" unless its a camper or cabin. No so much the dirt, bugs, and such.....just the thought of the dark woods scares me.
