Dad, before zipping up the tent, will you tell me about the stars?
Here are 5 family-friendly campsites where you can fall asleep under a blanket of stars
Mum and dad have set up the tent and the younger ones are now busy blowing up the air mattresses which will soon be magically transformed into beds fit for kings. “Mum, can we stay up tonight to look at the stars?”, “Dad, will you tell me the story about that great big star that sailors always keep an eye on?”.
Indeed, it’s while camping that children can get closer to nature, discover new things and sleep under the stars.
