My favorite thing about camping is spending time with the family!
Camping is the best kind of vacation. Being out in nature is so calming. The night sky is amazing and breakfast has never tasted so good.
I must admit to not having been camping. I really enjoy going to cabins by the lake, which is admittedly not the same thing. However, I love to take hikes with my family, especially when I have my camera.
My favorite part of camping is being outdoors—in the quiet. Outside of a large RV, of course.
I have never been camping and never had the desire to go. I live in the country and get my fill of mosquitoes just being outside without camping out. My ideal campout is checking in to a hotel with a shower and nice soft bed.
My favorite part of camping is: there is really no favorite, I’ve been camping for 56 years and I enjoy everything, seeing different campgrounds,being out in the woods and looking at the nature that God has created for us. I enjoy sleeping in the wilderness, campfires, hiking the different trails,and eating different foods that you don’t usually fix at home and it seems like the food always taste better when camping, camping is my favorite part of summer.
I have not been camping in a long time, but when I use to go, I loved swimming in the lake, and fishing. I could never pull the fish off the hook, but I always got excited when I got a bite. :)
I love to go out to the mountains and woods and traipse around. Hiking is fun; so is rock climbing. I even like sitting around a campfire singing and watching the stars, or looking through a telescope. But once that’s done, it’s time to head home (or to a hotel) for a bath and bed. These bones do not like sleeping on the ground!
My favorite thing about camping even at my age( (61) is just being in nature. Sitting by a fire roasting marshmallows. Life is so crazy so any time I can just go and relax I am ready. You need to learn to take time for you and return to your childhood. My parents used to take us camping every weekend growing up. Great childhood memories.
Checking in at the desk at the hotel. That’s my style of camping out.
I love the sounds and smell of camping.
As a birder and nature enthusiast, I love spending time outdoors. My favorite part of camping has always been simply being outside ALL day.

Love camping. Dont get to go as often as I wish anymore. Love being outside and the lake and trees. And of course the campfire.
I love when we camped. Smell of fresh air, camp fire burning. Good friends and good food. Things always tasted better outside. Listening to the birds that wake you up in the morning. There is nothing like it.

My three favorite things about camping are the smell of the campfire, counting the stars at night and time to reflect and hope. Maybe the best thing is the campfire time😊. I started camping as a young girl and while it’s been years, whenever I smell that campfire smell it brings everything back. Love it!
I love connecting with nature. We go exploring, always looking for unusual leaves, bugs and flowers. And of course nothing compares sitting near the camp fire at night laughing (arguing sometimes :)) and have a bbq. Looking forward to our next adventure…..

I camped a lot when I was young and in good health.I think my favorite camp activity was canoeing.It was peaceful on the water.
Sitting around the fire with the grandsons burning marshmallows.
We made a pretend campfire from small sticks and orange paper with a glue gun. For marshmallows we used cotton balls on popsicle sticks. We placed the fire in front of a
small tent. We also have a couple of small lawn chairs for the dolls.
Campfire – making smores. At least the fire helps keeping the insects down.
Roasting marshmallows over an open fire!
My favorite part of camping is staying in a fully equipped luxury RV. lol tent camping is NOT my thing.
Cute idea and adorable set, but outdoors is OK for AG dolls but definitely NOT for me. I love the indoors. Thanks for the opportunity!
My favorite part of camping is…NOT camping. lol I’m very much not an outdoorsy person. If I never had to spend another second outside in my life, I’d be okay with that. XD Let me just stay inside and sew and I’m happy!
Camping was always an adventure. I have fond memories of pulling off the road to find a secluded spot to camp while doing graduate research in Mexico. Never had any problems. Our most exciting campout occurred at the Kerrville Folk Festival when we discovered our tent wasn’t waterproofed during a 3am downpour. Fortunately, my husband and Zambian post-doctoral student were near by in a Travel-all. Very cozy sleeping that night.
I like the peaceful sounds and smells of being outdoors. I think the campfire is also something you never forget.
Enjoying the beauties of nature.
my favorite part of camping or glamping as our daughter refers to our version is relaxing our in God’s beautiful creations.
We usually camp by the ocean and I love being by the water, going to sleep listening to the waves rolling in. There’s always a nice breeze, no matter how hot it is. Everyone in the campground is so friendly. It’s getting away to a whole different world than my usual life and I love it.
I love the sounds and smells.
I love walking along the ocean shore, the sound of the waves and smell of the ocean air and campfires.

It’s been a while since I’ve camped but my favorite part was the morning and eating breakfast outdoors!

Would love to get out in the beautiful country here in the hilly ranch country of Nebraska. I’m in isolation for the foreseeable future, as I’m still in cancer treatment. Wish my brain and my hands would work well enough for me to sew. The doctors promise that it will start coming back soon after I discontinue treatment.
My favorite part about camping is relaxing! The main thing I do to relax when we go camping is to take my sewing machine, set it up in the screened in tent, and sew doll clothes!! What fun for me!!

There’s not to much about camping I dont like. And this years theme for my little girls I sew for is CAMPING. so I have purchased lots of camo fabric and other items, and ccx working on patterns now. Such fun
My favorite part, besides uninterrupted time with family and fresh air, is cooking outside!! Everyone is always so hungry, and ccx the smell of bacon eggs and pancakes outside is unbeatable, plus all the bar b qued meats. Everyone is always so happy with tummies full and laying down to hear the fire crackle and view the stars up above!! Then a couple s’mores and sleep better then ever!!

I love setting around the camp fire talking and enjoying every one’s company
My favorite part about camping is s’mores!
What I love about camping is being out, away from home and cooking out in nature.

My favorite part about camping is s’mores! Thanks so much for the contest. We usually go camping with our kids’ entire school this month, but since everything got cancelled, we just bought the ingredients and made s’mores in our oven this weekend. They came out great!
When I used to go camping, just being outdoors and close to the lake listening to the movement of the water.
