Re: Ideal age to bring kids camping? 
I think dad started taking me to camping when I was about 5 or 6. Then again, he really only did camping as a past time. Not really what I would consider a die-hard camper. But I'd agree with everyone else here. It really depends on your skill and ability to handle the kids. If you can handle 3 year olds, then go ahead. I don't really see anything wrong with it. As for those that are saying that they are too young, it's probably coz they've never really did any camping themselves.

Re: Ideal age to bring kids camping? 
That's so true, ej!

My son's about 4, and when some mothers in his school found out that my husband and I take him camping with us, they are shocked and I guess a bit appalled. One even commented on how I can even manage to sleep at night putting my son in a situation that is just dangerous. To which I asked her if she has ever been camping, and she flatly told me no because it's just way too dangerous. Sigh! Oh well!
