Don’t Go Camping Without Visiting Coghlan’s (and Enter This Giveaway!)

I’m excited because our family is planning to do a little camping this summer! Camping is such a wonderful experience for families to share together. It gets everyone outdoors and away from the distractions of TV and video games, and teaches children an appreciation for nature and living without modern conveniences.

If camping is in your summer plans, you might want to know about a company called Coghlan’s, which carries more than 450 products for being in the great outdoors. They have everything from tent pegs to coolers, from compasses to anti-mosquito products. In fact, they have just about anything you could want when it comes to camping.

If you’ll be camping for the first time, you might want to check out their First-Time Camping Guide, a 30+ page booklet for novice campers that includes checklists and advice about camping.


Coghlan’s also has a line of products just for kids that includes items like a bird call, an insect house, a pond net, and a four-function whistle. Check out these 7-Function Binoculars for Kids! They also act as a compass, a magnifying glass, a signal mirror, and other things.


I encourage all parents to try camping with their kids. It’s usually less expensive than other vacations, and it will be an experience that all of you will remember for a lifetime! And before you go, get properly equipped by visiting www.coghlans.com to check out their huge array of camping products!
