Every year, around the end of June, my family joins 8 others on a camping weekend.
Eighteen adults and anything upward of 20 children (depending on who takes a friend). Aged 2 to 18.
The same weekend every year. It costs about £30 per family to stay at the campsite but the quality time is priceless.
I am a big advocate of camping; for the bonding, the being outdoors, the relaxing, the amazing memories our children make.
A family holiday they will always remember and treasure.
Sure it’s hard work. It’s a jaunt to the loo, you’ll argue when erecting the tent and sometimes you have to put up with a lukewarm beer when the ice runs out.
And if one of the kids gets up in the night for a tinkle . . . ARGH!

I’m also writing on the Tesco Magazine site about family friendly days out in the West Midlands so if you’re looking for somewhere off the beaten track to visit this summer, do take a look.
The guide is a whistle-stop guide to the UK, focusing on fun activities, places to stay, places to eat and make the most of what our fair country has to offer.
And if you know a cool place to visit that you want to share with everyone on the Tesco site, you can add it to the interactive map.
