Usually overexcited, they need a lot of attention as they can sometimes make your trip more complicated. It is therefore necessary to organize as well as possible to go by motorhome with your children.
Why go camping with your children?
It is first a real opportunity to get together with family and share unforgettable holidays. Living very close in a small space brings together parents and children. Then, travelling and discovering the world will be the goal of the whole family.
Choose your vehicle according to your expectations. A Capuchin or integral motorhome is suitable for families seeking maximum comfort. It can be difficult to park according to your itinerary and according to the dimensions of your motorhome so do not hesitate to consult CaraMaps to know your pitches.
Travel by motorhome with your children : the freedom
A trip with your children in a motorhome is very attractive. First, it is possible to stop wherever you want at any time. It is easy to stop to admire the landscape, to eat…
The comfort is totally present on board: gas to cook and fridge, everything is planned to optimize the trip and make it pleasant.
Finally, telling a child that it will be able to sleep in a “mobile home” is an idea that will please him for sure!
Is traveling with a baby binding?
No, on the contrary! Travelling by motorhome allows you to have freedom on your pace: it is possible to stop when you want (for meals or naps, etc.). The interior of the motorhomes is very comfortable so you can settle there quickly to take some rest.
For children ?
You will soon be surprised to find that the camper holiday mode is quieter than the hotel! First travel by motorhome is not common and will therefore excite your children. They will not have time to get bored. For example, discovering new landscapes, sites, replenishing supplies and making changes… will make days too short!
So that your stay goes smoothly, plan sports, cultural and festive activities that will attract the curiosity of your teens! “They need to move these teenagers”. Even if it is very complicated to disconnect them from electronic games, do not private ones because the journeys can be long. Campers offer plugs to plug in their equipment and keep busy on the road.

What activities to do?
Obviously, for your children this is the great adventure and the opportunity to get closer to nature!
To occupy them, give them responsibilities such as fetching water to replenish the motorhome. But also if you are near a lake or river, why not go fishing? Grilling their fish for dinner will be a pride!
👉🏼 Discover the Camping des Lacs
You can also hike in the forest or in the mountains. If your motorhome is big enough you can carry your bikes. They will be useful if you want to take a walk and pedal in nature.
In the evening, you can play board games or tell stories near a fire, for example.
When you two are together it is easy to improvise! But with children, improvisation is not easy. Think about finding interesting activities (theme park, sites to visit, hikes, beach, zoo, etc.). Make your camping-car trip unforgettable!
Then plan your parking for the night: don’t even imagine going around the sites for long minutes while your children only want to go out! Avoid wasting time and look ahead to possible parking (parking areas and camping).
Think about safety! Just because you have a bed in the back of your vehicle doesn’t mean you can get into it when you’re driving! It is punishable by fine! Children must remain tied up as in car!
Then take the time to admire the landscape and drive with your head rested!
Do not forget list for your children:
- their doudou
- films and cartoons
- some games
- some balloons or others for outdoor activities
- a cap for hiking
- a first aid kit
