I survived! This past weekend, this single mom took three kids camping with my son’s Boy Scout Den. Granted, I wasn’t completely alone in the wilderness with them, and I had help setting up the tent. It was definitely a mild version of true camping, but that was exactly what I was looking for. I have camped before, but to be honest, those camping trips included my own private RV. I miss that RV.
Here are the recipes for you to try out!
