Thinking of going camping with the family this summer but are a bit nervous because it's been awhile? No worries. The folks at REI have an entire section of their website dedicated to making your family camping experience the stuff great memories are made of.

The REI blog has links to a series of webisodes which follow two families as they prepare to take a camping trip together, covering everything from expectations to packing to cookery. While not exactly a how-to, they are well-produced little videos that could provide the motivation you need to reserve that campsite you have been thinking about all winter.

Their Family Adventure Program is a great resource to get your kids excited about the great outdoors. It includes an extensive Kids' Adventure Journal as a free download, which is chock full of games, tips, and journal pages for your kids to record what they have seen. REI's site has loads of info on every topic imaginable, so be sure to check it out before your next expedition.
