The story behind Camp-Cations at Cabela's

The story behind Camp-Cations

Author: Kathleen Pilney

Parents are well aware that the chance to spend time with their children is precious. The days and years seem to fly past like a whirlwind; and kids are eager to grow up just as fast. It's important to schedule time to spend with your kids while you have the chance. Family vacations give you that opportunity.

While the current economic climate may not allow you the flexibility to take them on a dream vacation, don't throw out the idea altogether. It's time for a paradigm shift from costly hotel rooms, expensive flights and pricey meals for a more palatable vacation solution.

Don't get caught up in the idea that you're without a choice in this current economic climate. The reality is, you do have a choice. Take back your power by substituting everyday distraction with a course of action. This Web portal was created to help you do just that.
Let this guide of gear suggestions and links serve as a resource to help you plan your next camp-cation, or closer-to-home camping vacation. After all, it's about spending family time, not your savings account. Family togetherness is well worth the investment.

It's your turn to guide us. Go to the talk forum section at and let us know which camping topics you'd like us to cover, destinations that deserve attention, and gear recommendations you'd like to suggest to fellow campers. Comments can be posted under the "General Outdoors" heading at the bottom of our forum page at Together, we'll create the Cabela's camping evolution.

While you are shopping don't forget to write a review of the products you have tried. There are review links on nearly all of our product pages. We look forward to hearing from you.
