Getting a camping backpack for a kid helps him or share the responsibility on your
camping trip. With everything that mom and dad have to carry for the journey,
sometimes the little ones can help out too.
When I first started hiking with my son, he carried a small day pack with just his sleeping bag and some water. Now that he's a bit older I load him up some more with our two man hiking tent and some food to share the weight between us.
Kid backpacks for camping come in a number of colors for them to enjoy. Kid backpack makers include Burton, CamelBak, Jansport and Kelty, just to name a few. Prices for a kid backpack vary from $20 to over $100. As for sizes, they vary as well. The smaller kid backpacks fit children as young as five years old.
On average a kid’s camping backpack will have some type of hydration pack with one-liter storage capabilities. This is a nice attachment so children can stay hydrated by using their own kid backpack instead of riffling through mom and dad’s pack for a drink.
A kid backpack is quite spacious, too, and usually provides enough room for a weeks worth of supplies such as snacks or clothing, and possibly even a lightweight kids sleeping bag.
Framed or unframed, camping kid backpacks offer everything an adult backpack does, but it’s tailored to fit a child. Without being as big and bulky as an adult pack, kid camping backpacks serve the same function as the larger counterpart.
Getting a camping kid backpack for your child is not only practical, but it also creates a sense of self-reliance. Like their parents, they are taking part in the hiking and camping experience by having a pack just like the grown-ups.
Your kids’ backpack can come in any shape or size but even more important than its functionality, it provides for kids a sense of self-esteem, adventure and fun.
