Aside from the obvious (staying at home, sharing a sleeping bag and not camping), what are your thoughts on best ways to stay warm while camping?

We have airbeds with blankets beneath, sleeping bags and a duvet or two. And we are always cold at night! Always. and I am just fed up with it

And I cannot not camp as we home educate and camping is just a fact of HEing life.

OK thoughts please, I need to get this one sorted. My kids are quite small still and shiver easily and very pathetically.

Hot water bottle, sleeping bag liner, sleeping bag and duvet/fleecey blanket.

ALways always always wear a hat

We went camping this week.
We had airics, proper 4 season sleeping bags and a blanket over the top. dd and I had hot water bottles.
Me being a very blue coloured person much of the time wore thermal leggings and vest, pjs, a thick jumper, bed socks and a hat. I was fine.
cept it was a bummer when I needed the loo.
