Kids Tiredness and Loss of interest?
Avoid signing up kids for long treks as kids will get tired and lose interest, parents will have trouble controlling them.

Please keep yourself and your children hydrated on treks and camping, make sure you carry basic medicine for kids, also medicated food products if required please carry them as trekking places are offbeat and don't have proper provision.

In case you have a special request for food please inform trek leader 2 days in advance so that arrangement can be made. Don't assume your food requirement can be met on the spot.
Trek equipment and shoes?
Please buy proper trekking shoes and clothes, children are happy wearing jackets, shoes, caps. Playing in the rain and not getting wet and staying warm will help them retain energy longer.
