Before you read on, know this: driving a long distance without screens to camp with your family requires fortitude and patience. There will be bathroom breaks, multiple requests for snacks and if you have more than one child, backseat arguments are guaranteed. You’ll play games like Ninja Mad Libs and listen to stadium rock and Meghan Trainor for hours on Spotify.
On the upside, once you’ve arrived at camp, you get to spend quality time with your kids, explore new places, eat delicious meals cooked over an open fire, and enjoy full days outdoors without distractions.
With these pluses in mind, we planned a two-week excursion to Parc du Saguenay in Quebec with hopes of also seeing parts of the Gaspé Peninsula, and then traveling to Northern Maine and Campobello Island, New Brunswick.
