Nobody puts Baby in a corner (campsite!)

First time primitive camping with an 18 month old and a six year old.  Tips? Troubles?  Mama has done the alone-in-the-woods-with-a-mechanical-pencil-and-some-rubbing-alcohol type stuff, but I've never done it with the kids.  I find myself somewhat trepidatious, even though I have decent wilderness skills.  I've never had to use them with the kids, though, and well... Accidentally Mommy would prefer not to rock the boat and end up Accidentally Needing Them.

Please... discuss in comments!  I'm sure everyone has an anecdote if nothing else, of their own.

  1. I've never been camping in my whole life and don't intend to ever start, but with little ones, I'd suggest plenty of insect repellant, and a stash of foods you know they'll eat under any circumstances.
