A few years ago I went on a camping trip with my brother. After just a few short hours of camping I began to get scared. Without hesitation I started walking for home. My brother got so scared when I came up missing that now he’ll never take me camping again. I love playing with him and I want to give camping another shot. How do I convince him I’ll be okay?

Just like little kids, everyone gets scared on their first sleepover. Don’t beat yourself up over this one. Instead, try hinting around to your brother that you would like to give it another shot. Pull out the sleeping bag or take him to the spot where he stores the tent. You also may want to consider bringing your favorite blanket with you on your next trip to make the stay a little easier. Happy camping!
