Many years ago I went camping with a bunch of women friends. The campground where we stayed was a bit primitive by modern standards, but we wanted it that way. We took our tents, set them up and slept in them. We made a campfire for sitting around and sharing stories, but also for cooking. The meat, potatoes and onions we wrapped in aluminum foil and buried beneath it to bake was one of the best meals I have ever tasted. There was a small lake for swimming and a bath house that included showers. It was a weekend of camaraderie, laughter and getting to know each other a bit better. Now it is a memory that I cherish.

In today’s camping world, the experience can be more comfortable in many ways than the experience my friends and I had. Motor homes allow you to bring all the comforts of home with you and camp grounds have everything else you might need. In Brunswick County, NC, you can find campgrounds with events and amenities for kids such as swimming pools and swings as well as proximity to your favorite beaches.
