A Great Family Vacation Starts Here

One summer I got a very long email from a family who had been on a disastrous vacation where everything went wrong – but they still had an amazing time! Here’s just a piece of the story:

“We FINALLY got to go on our first trip over this past weekend. I used your e-book as my guide and I was so happy that I did!


I packed what you said to pack, followed all the details, used your meal plans and it was all great!

So very, very helpful to a total novice like me. My family was very pleased with the food and I felt great that we got to go camping and still eat wholesome food (along with the occasional s’more).

Anyway, just wanted to say great job on the e-book and thank you for putting it out there! I know I’ll be using it for many years to come.”

What’s Inside The Family Camping Handbook?

Paul with toad
  • A rookie’s overview of how to get started camping: minimum basic supplies to buy, what to pack, the proper campin’ attitude, and plenty of encouragement.
  • A total of 36 camping recipes and techniques for campfire cooking – 100% real food approved.
  • Little kid camping tips – like the one item you can pack to make “I’m bored” banished from your campsite!
  • How to keep babies content and even somewhat clean when out in the woods.
  • The perfect campsite setup – when you come home, you’ll wish you were back camping!
  • Real food adaptations to standard camping fare – no need to compromise with hot dogs and white buns just because you’re out in the woods with a campfire! (But you can if you want – the book shares “compromise upgrades” too so you can make the call.)
  • FIVE printable packing and to do checklists
  • Full weekend menu plan, grocery list and prep list included
  • Plus a Paleo/Primal/Grain-free adaptation to the weekend plan, TWO full gluten-free camping menu plans and 10 printable recipe cards!

If you’ve always wanted to try camping as a frugal family vacation but are nervous because you have little ones, whether they’re babies, toddlers, or preschoolers, The Family Camping Handbook is your ticket to success in the woods.

Rookie, veteran, and everyone in between: you’ll love camping more than ever when you pick up your copy and use the strategies and recipes!

If You Want Practical Help…

“We so enjoyed the e-book. Both my husband and I read it and we both were thoroughly impressed. I recently purchased another e-book on camping and to be honest it was just filled with a bunch of camping stories plus some helpful info, whereas [the Family Camping Handbook] was all completely practical and helpful.

[This] e-book can easily replace multiple resources on the subject. Its great usefulness is found in how comprehensive it is.”

–Amos and Edwena, Cincinnati, OH

More Happy Campers

“Wow! I have to say it again, what a great resource this is for families. I was surprised to find that it was more of a “how to camp” book than just a “how to cook real food while camping” book, however, I think it is this aspect that will make it such a great “go-to” resource for many people. – I know I’ve learned a few things! :)

There were a few parts that I laughed out loud and many others that made me smile. You have me convinced that if my husband and I are ever blessed with children that we can handle camping with an infant or toddler, AND that it will be fun! (Seriously, I am ready to pack up the car right now and get camping!)”

–Andi, a KS reader

“This definitely raised my confidence in venturing out to camp with my baby and husband.”

–Theresa, a KS reader

The Family Camping Handbook has already inspired me to plan a camping trip sometime this summer or early Fall. I was a little intimidated to plan one with a two year old, but we can do it! I think the book will help others do the same.”

–Jessica, a KS reader

“What I Love about The Family Camping Handbook: It reveals the Kimball family’s heart for simplicity, quality time, and family bonding, which I found more precious than anything.”

–Wardeh Harmon, founder of Traditional Cooking School

“Katie has put together a very comprehensive, thorough and helpful guide for moms and dads who want to get out into nature with their kids and enjoy the frugality and simplicity that camping offers, but without the general frustration and challenges that camping can present.”


–Stephanie Langford, creator of Keeper of the Home
