RVing with kids offers a unique and exciting experience to families. However, virtual classes require a more strict schedule for a successful education. With the right precautions and considerations in mind, families can travel full time without sacrificing learning. First-timers and seasoned campers alike will find success with these tips:
Pack the Right Equipment for Virtual Classes
Virtual classes are a socially-distant alternative to in-person schooling. An online option also provides an excellent opportunity to go RVing with kids. Rather than fuss with weekend trips or pulling the children out of class, families can take their courses on the road with them!
Taking things online- and on the road- requires a little extra thought when it comes to packing for your trip. Along with the typical camping supplies, remember to pack items you would send your child to school with. Consider bringing:
- A laptop and charger
- Lined paper
- Art supplies
- A planner
Teachers will most likely send a list of necessary items, but it never hurts to be prepared!
Look for Family-Friendly Campgrounds when RVing with Kids
Not every campground you encounter while RVing with kids will be family-friendly. Before booking any campgrounds, verify their policy on younger campers. Also, check out their amenities and nearby attractions. Virtual classes only take up part of the day, meaning there is a lot of room for exploring outdoors!
Local parks and towns with lots of attractions for all ages are an added benefit, so consider your location when booking a campsite.
Internet Requirements for Youth Virtual Classes
Another vital feature of RVing with kids while school is in session: your internet connection. Virtual classes require a strong, stable internet connection. Wifi is especially crucial for children tuning in to live sessions. Those completing work on their own time have a little more flexibility, but cannot go long periods without hopping online and finishing work.
Many spots along your way will likely offer free wifi, from Starbucks to McDonald’s. Campgrounds providing internet for guests is also a plus, allowing you to stay in one place longer.
Go Camping with Children and Enjoy the Outdoors Together
There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors when RVing with kids. Hiking, interpretive trails, and fishing are great options to keep everyone active and entertained. During the warmer months, lakeside sites are a must.
Parents who enjoy plants can use their trip as an opportunity to teach the young ones all about the nature around them. Plus, you can consider your many adventures to count as physical education!
Rainy days call for indoor activities, so remember to pack board games and a deck of cards.
