"We do family camping in a couple of different ways. We’ll go as a large family group - my brother and his kids and his wife, and my sister and her husband and kids - we’ll all get together and all go camping. That tends to be once a year.
"If I find I’m off on a Saturday and Sunday, I’ll come in on the Friday and say to the kids, “we’re going camping” and they’ll jump at the chance. We’ll put the box and bag in the car, and we’ll all go out to a campsite if we have to but if not, I’ll have recced where’s good to go, where’s near a water source and everything. Sometimes my wife won’t want to come, or she’ll be working so can’t come, but sometimes I think she likes the respite of me taking the kids because they’re pretty full on sometimes!
"But they love camping, they’ll help me pitch the tent, James likes to use the mallet and make sure the pegs go in. They’ve got their own sleeping bags, their own pillows, they make sure everything’s set up, they have their own side of the tent they lie on, they absolutely love it. ”
