Is your urban lifestyle holding you back from giving your kids the adventurous and well-rounded childhood of your dreams.

Because, if raising kids in a higher density area has one drawback, it's this.

The lack of natural open space for the all-important adventure based play.

If they just aren't active and outdoors enough.

If screen time battles are a continuous frustration.

If trips to the local park just don't cut it any more.

If your busy schedule, daily distractions, work-life imbalance, the mortgage and other living costs, and everything else that's going on, too often gets in the way of truly connecting with them.

If organizing activities through outdoor groups means someone else gets to share in their special memories.

If expensive hotel holidays and getaways are limited by your budget, and lets face it, no more adventurous than staying at home.

Then take them camping!

And give them the active and outdoor experiences they will love.

No need for a large car for a family of 4.

No need for a large storage area.

No need to tow anything.

No need for a big budget.

You just need a desire to give them....

...happy childhood memories through camping.

And get your camping setup sorted.

Introducing Camping Setup Sorted

This is our counter-intuitive approach to camping that is actually designed by an urban specifically for urban families.

So you can you gear up for camping with confidence and in comfort and style from day one with the "good gear".

But without the trial and error, the need for an enormous car, or a trailer, or a large storage area.

Our approach focuses on getting you set up with a fully functional, affordable, comfortable, reliable AND PERSONALISED camping setup now.

Preferably when you are starting out and will appreciate it the most.

This is in contrast to the usual path for campers, where gear is accumulated over time, usually starting out with the cheap low quality gear first.

On top of that, the actual "art of camping" is learnt the hard way, through a process of trial and error.

It's this combination of less reliable gear and inexperience that can totally turn people off camping who might have otherwise really enjoyed it.

And, when you are a busy parent dealing with urban logistics, you simply don't have the time, or the inclination.

Instead, at the core of the Camping Setup Sorted program is the Camping Kickstarter Kit, our tried and tested camping setup that, for a family of up to 5, can be transported comfortably and safely by car.

And, for a family of 4, there are plenty of midsize car options for those of you who don't want a large car.

Rather than one size fits all, in the program we help beginners and experienced alike to put together the style of fully functional camping setup to suit them.

One that won't break the bank or the back or take hours to pack.

One that:

  • Is compact and lightweight for transporting by car
  • Is easy to pack, pitch and pack up
  • Has a fully functional camp kitchen (in the context of tent camping)
  • Is eco-friendly
  • Doesn't strain your bank, your back or take hours to pack
  • If you don't have a trailer or access to one, you don't need one to haul it for a family of 4-5
  • Compares favourably with most camping setups you will see at campgrounds

And, most importantly, one that lets you choose your adventure.

If you try out the Camping Setup Sorted Program and you don’t in the end feel camping is for you, l’ll give you a full refund, no questions asked.

I’m so confident you’ll love what you can achieve with this program (plus the amazing bonuses) that I’ll take the risk of giving you such a generous guarantee.

If You Are Not Convinced, Then Here's My Advice On What Not To Do

Don't do what I did.

It took 4 years to get a camping setup I was finally happy with. And, that's way too long!

  • Don't get tempted by the latest gimmick or bargain buy.
  • Don't expect to get answers specific to you on social media - you either get hundreds of often contradicting answers, or crickets
  • Don't spend hours and hours down the research rabbit hole.
  • Don't buy cheap, flimsy gear
  • Quality over quantity.

That's why I created this program

I realized that, after discovering our new camping setup, I should share it with others:

Would-be beginners, urban families like us, and indeed any families who want to get into nature but are limited by the urban logistics.

Those with limited storage space, longer distances to our destination, congestion and the decreasing size of cars, and indeed the decline in car ownership altogether.

And those who don't have loads of space for trailers, RVs and bulky camping gear.

Or anyone for that matter who wants to simplify their camping and lighten their load while still camping comfortably.

And, in as little as 2 weeks, not years like me.

But with enough variety and camping setup options to ensure everyone had a result that was personalized to them, because one size doesn't fit all.

Why Only $10

Yes, you won't have to spend $1000 to learn this.

Keeping all of these value bombs inside an expensive course doesn't seem right for something as beneficial as camping for families and kids.

I priced this program as low as possible to give you everything you need to gear up for camping.

I worked in the not-for-profit sector for over 20 years, so I guess it's rubbed off.

That's why I am making all of the content available in this program for such a low price of $10.

If you have the time it's all there.

But, if you need more help from me to implement the program and save you even more time, then sign up and join the Camping Kickstart Program for camping trailer free.

And for a more done with you experience, sign up and I'll send you more information about how to join the Express Program.

Why Parents Love To Take Their Kids Camping

LISA: A number of years ago we (husband and I) decided to adopt the camping holiday life and I relish every trip we have done since. My boys have seen many places (still so many to see!) and a lot of their holiday memories are the camping ones we have done.

For me camping is the ultimate rest relax reset and the best family time I could have ever hoped for! There’s nothing like it!"

KIM: We love caravan parks, the people you met the friends the kids make, the memories of just being on holidays.

And hey the kids are way more enjoyable! We have taken our son camping and he had the time of his life."

JENNA: We have been taking our boy 4wd/camping since he was born... He s slowly getting more adventurous in exploring & loves going for a bush walk. All kids should experience it..."

JAIMEE: The kids had an awesome time. Best of all, it felt like the camping I did as a kid so I loved having my own kids experience this and can’t wait for our next trip!"

MELISSA: Single mom camping with four kids! I’m thankful to my parents who taught me a love for camping! Something I love sharing with my kids."

SHANA:We have taken all 4 boys since they were newborns. They all love camping!!...It's an amazing way of life and so good the the soul."

SARAH: Been taking the kids camping since they were 3 months and younger! Kids are completely different while camping.

Mine are so overly active at home, yet while camping they are calm and relaxed. We love it."

SARAH: We've been camping since the boys were babies. Their favourite place so far is the Simpson desert!

We take tent or camper, depending where we go. Last trip was a month in the tent spending a few nights at each place along the way."

TANIA: We have taken our son camping and he had the time of his life."

Our Story

Hi there, Jo Simon here,

I live in Melbourne, Australia, and have over 20 years experience in finance, business management and corporate governance in the not for profit sector.

Having spent way too much time getting our camping setup to a point where I was happy with it, and didn't need a trailer to haul it for 4 people, I thought I would use my skills and interest to share what I have learnt to help families achieve what I did in 4 weeks, not 4 years.

And that's not just the physical setup but the whole camping process.

I could see newbie families trying to work the whole camping thing out themselves.

I could also see many families living in higher density areas simply not camping to the same extent that you find of families living in the suburbs and rural areas.

I could see beginners buying cheap gear that didn't last the distance and failed when they least expected.

I could see these campers with a long wish list of items to buy, some of which could have made a huge difference to their camping gear NOW.

And, I also saw beginner campers buying items they really didn't need either.

I found myself driven to do something about it.

I started a website ( and developed resources to help families to save money, time, space and your sanity.

All resources developed with camping trailer free in mind, including eco-friendly camping, tent camping, camping for beginners and families and a whole lot more.

(Just search for "best camping setup" and you will most likely find me - just look for the little red puppy😊).

Then I decided to develop a program for a small fee that didn't have commission based recommendations attached to it, or loads of advertisements.

Not only to give budding family campers the massive head start that we didn't have, but also to help more families to camp when they thought it perhaps wasn't even possible.

Got Any Questions

why do you charge for your information when there is so much out there online for free?

We have the information you need all centralized in one place. You don't have to search through endless forum threads and online articles full of ads and commission based recommendations trying to find the information that is relevant to you. 

I have a lot of existing camping gear. Can I still use it.

If you have a trailer or just want to "revamp your camp" by lightening your load, improving your existing setup and speeding up your packing, pitching and packing up times, then absolutely not. There are loads of ideas for you to consider depending on your existing gear and the good old cost / benefit analysis.

If, however, you want to camp trailer free, you may not be able to use some of your existing gear because of the small margins involved. 

That said, when you compare the cost, you are still likely to be ahead if you replace your gear, compared to the alternative of investing in a larger vehicle or trailer, and somewhere to store it, or choosing alternative forms of holidays.

I don't have a lot of money to spend on camping gear. Can you help me?

Yes absolutely! This is the place to be if you want to camp comfortably and safely, whether you have a trailer or not, and you are on a tight budget. We focus on keeping costs down and getting the most out of your gear. That said, we recommend you don't skimp on what you sleep in and what you sleep on (ie your tent and basically avoid cheap airbeds and thin sleeping mats). Good quality gear can last you for years and save you in the long run.

I live in an apartment. How will that work?

Our camping setup for beginners would be ideal for you. It is entry level, but still allows you to take advantage of most of the tips and advice available here on this site. The better you are equipped and prepared for camping at the beginning, the more likely you will enjoy it and want to continue with it. If not, you will find a later use for most of the items in the camping setup.

What if your particular camping setup doesn't suit me?

This website is really here to help beginner campers and families or groups of up to five to camp comfortably and safely, trailer free. It's not about encouraging you to do exactly as we do, although if you want to, that's perfectly fine with us. As they say, imitation is the best form of flattery!

We know that one size doesn't fit all, and your particular family size, circumstances, preferences and personalities will influence and help shape your final camping setup.

Within the context of our trailer-free and tent style of camping, we will provide you with as much variety and choice as we can to help you put together a camping setup that suits your circumstances. The more you understand the principles of our setup, the more you will be able to independently make your own additions as you go.

I don't live in Australia. Can you help me?

Yes definitely. While there are references to the Australian dollar, and most products at present are linked to Australian retailers, we also provide detailed descriptions to help you to source products locally as well. We also where possible reference imperial as well as metric measurements.

I am an experienced camper. Is this program right for me?

Beginner campers and families new to camping would gain the most out of the Camping Setup Sorted program. That said, we still believe we have useful information for any camper, especially if you are looking to streamline your camping and lighten your load. We also have a lot of time and money saving tips that would help any camper.

I have an RV. Is this program right for me?

Beginner campers and families new to camping would gain the most. There is still a lot of useful information for any camper, but the core offering won't be particularly relevant to you.

Do you do one-on-one consultations?

Yes, you can book a one-on-one consultation on the checkout page. Sign up and I'll send you further information. I do have limited capacity to provide more one-on-one support which is by invitation only.

What are the upsells?

They change from time to time, but I generally offer the Camping Kickstart Program at a significant discount to the list price. This program is designed around camping trailer free - that is without the need for any kind of trailer or RV.

I also have The 1 Hour Pack Program to help you be packed and gone camping in just 1 hour. This is also a significant discount on the list price.

I also offer one on one services if you want additional support and advice.

None of these programs are required if you are just looking at your physical camping setup. That is all covered in the Camping Setup Essentials Program.

Is this everything I need?

If camping trailer free is not important to you, ie you have a trailer, then yes, this program plus the bonuses will give you everything you need to gear up and go camping,

And, if you want to get some additional help to camp trailer free or to further fast track the process, you can sign up to either of those programs. The attached articles willExpress program.

How long do I have access to the program / content?

Indefinitely! This may change at some point for future subscribers, but you will have access to the content as long as I am running the program, and I don't plan on going anywhere :)
