first night - v. little sleep you will want to come home. after that it kind of works out. key is to relax and realise you can't actually make them sleep. have a lovely time.

We tried to do our usual routine on our first camp when they were 3 and 5. Fools.

Twas an absolute nightmare.

Took advice from a veteran camper away with his DGs. Let them run around outside until they fall asleep on their feet or beg to be put to bed.

Result - DSes played out till late whilst DH and I quaffed wine and then they slept in until 9 am. Bliss.

(Reversing this once home is a bugger tho'!)
