How to Host a Camping Party

We have hosted some amazing parties at our house.  We have had an Ice Cream Social, a Mexican Fiesta, and a Nerf Gun Party.  A few weeks ago we had a Camping Party for my youngest son, Stephen, who was turning 5.  Traditionally we host a huge party when each child turns 5, 10, and 15.  This has been a huge success and a sense of excitement for all of our children, and this year was no exception.
