Want to take the kids camping but don't know where to start?

Priority Camping Kickstart Program

Are you looking to enjoy a break with the kids these summer holidays and give them the adventure the whole family will love you for?

Why not take them camping? It's gets you out into the great outdoors, it's great for everyone's mental and physical health, you see new and interesting places, and the kids just love it.

But if you've never camped before, there is no doubt that the thought of taking the kids camping can be a pretty daunting experience.

Where to start, what to take, all of that packing, pitching and unpacking, and the weather! Do you have the right kind of car, do you need a trailer and do you have enough storage space?

Add to that the time it takes to get all of this together and it's no wonder so many busy parents organise something else for their family holidays.

If you want a hassle free start to your family camping adventures, then join our Priority Camping Kickstart Program.

Who Is the Kickstart Priority Program For?

This program is right for you if you are:

  • Time-poor parents
  • A 4-5-person family 
  • A camping beginner, or at least family camping beginner 


  • You want a customised supported solution tailored to you
  • You are keen to act now and work through the program over the period estimated to be around 14 days

What is this program about:
 The trailer free roadmap

Over several years we have developed and refined the optimal trailer-free camping setup to cater for most 4-5 person families.

And by trailer free, we mean a camping setup that can be transported safely and comfortably by some mid-size cars and many larger vehicles on the market without the need for a trailer. If you have a trailer or access to one, however, that's fine as well.

While we have based this program on our personal camping setup, you can certainly create something uniquely yours.

In our Kickstart Priority Program, we work directly with you through the program on a one-on-one basis through the following has eight steps:

1: Planning

We help you plan the right kind of trailer-free camping setup to suit your budget, preferred camping style, relevant hobbies and interests, plans and practical matters about your circumstances. You can record your plan in the provided workbook and we also help you develop a spending plan with the spreadsheet provided.

2: Your Camping Setup

We help you put together the right kind of camping setup to suit you, including sourcing your camping gear with our Kickstarter Kit, buying guides, tips, and links to source the right products.

In this process, we will develop a list of the items you will need, considering the type of vehicle you will use (see point 3 below). 

3: Your Vehicle

We help you choose the right kind of vehicle to suit your circumstances, particularly your camping setup. If, as is commonly the case, you don't have the right type of vehicle, we can help you choose an alternative solution, such as through hiring/rental arrangements.

The provided Car Buying Checklist and Weight of Car Load Calculator will help you find your ideal vehicle.

4: Home Storage Solution

 We show how you can store your camping gear in a relatively small space measuring 1.5m2 of floor space and additional options. Your gear will always be well organised and ready for a quick camping getaway.
