Kid-Friendly Camping Recipes That Kick Campfire Cooking Up A Notch

We've come a long way from cans of baked beans.

Camping with kids can be one of the most rewarding summer experiences for a family.

Swimming, stargazing, s'mores making — all while surrounded by nature and away from the stresses of city life. What's not to love?

But just because you're restricted to a campfire for all your meals doesn't mean you have to live off hot dogs and cans of baked beans (although your kids would probably love that, to be honest). With a little planning, you can serve some filling and creative meals.
