Our Mums have done so much for us through our lives and with Mother’s Day approaching it’s time to buckle down and start thinking about what exactly you want to treat her to. They deserve something special for all the trouble they had to go through raising us. And let’s be honest, they deserve more than just a single day of appreciation. It wouldn’t be farfetched to say that they should be praised and thanked every day, so why not spoil her with a camping trip and let her relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity that accompanies the great outdoors!

Whether you decide on the beach or the forest, a lake side trip  or an off-road journey in your camper or caravan , you will need to prepare accordingly. This is your time to take up the role your Mum usually manages and plan out a vacation suitable for all she has done. Roasting marshmallows over a campfire, cooking dinner under the stars, hiking through beautiful sceneries, or having a picnic on a sandy beach listening to the crashing waves. It doesn’t matter if you settle on pitching a tent, setting up a camper trailer or glamping in your caravan, what matters is that your Mum enjoys herself! So what exactly can you do to help make this a special Mother’s Day?

In most households, it’s our Mums that do all the cooking and despite their best efforts to make us contribute, they usually get stuck doing the washing up afterwards as well, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner AND handling the cleanup afterwards is the first step to pampering your lovely Mother. When out camping, you might not have all the same appliances that you would usually have to cook, but that’s what makes this the perfect opportunity to expand your own repertoire and look for some iconic camping meals to serve up. Whether you use a built in kitchen in your caravan or camper trailer or a simple fire, they are the types of meals you don’t get to have often, and the change of pace, away from your households typical go-to dish, will be a pleasant surprise that your mother is sure to enjoy.

Viewing the sites! If you are already out camping, you should obviously take the chance to see all that the location has to offer. Oceans have their beaches, forests have their wildlife, that seems obvious, but you can see some truly incredible scenes by taking the time to venture out. The fresh air that accompanies these outdoor views is similarly great and although a little hiking may be required here and there, it just adds to the wonder and the sense of accomplishment that comes with the views. So, taking your Mum out for a sightseeing trip during Mother’s Day is a great idea!

As the day is coming to an end, building a campfire, sitting around it, and roasting some marshmallows can’t be beaten. It’s a tried-and-true method that has become an iconic camping experience, and for a good reason. It’s the perfect time to share a drink, chat and laugh about anything and everything without a care in the world. For something so simple to do, it is truly an experience more than worth the effort to arrange. An effort that your Mum will be able to fully enjoy with friends and family.

Make some awesome memories in an MDC camper or caravan and take the family off-grid for an adventure at your own pace.
