This is wonderful. I am from a non-camping sort of family, but I would have loved this sort of thing as a child. In fact, I'd love it now as an adult. Even if you decide to make it a tradition, I would continue to rent rather than buy the stuff. Storing it means keeping it clean and fresh (and it takes up a lot of space). Also, why do the work of setting up - it's supposed to be a vacation for the parents, too, not just the kids.

I think you may have the seasons mixed up? June is winter in Australia...and if it were summer hols in December then hats and warm jumpers would be off.

Great article, though, and what a fantastic idea.
