They generally carry outdoor games thing not electronic games. The only electronic thing they carry is MP3 player.

For us, the electronics are only for the ride. I resist that sometimes as well. I remember our camping trips - growing up - to be just as much about watching out the window during the trip as it was about the arrival. But, oh well.

However, they are strictly not allowed once arrived and setup. They are so addictive that kids wouldn't discover so much of what's available if they were allowed to be glued to their screens. We know this as adults as we find ourselves 'heads-down' into our smartphones.

Yes! Geocaching is an excellent -- fun -- and technology-savy to get kids engaged in the great outoors. And, so educational!

I never would allow electronics(games, Ipads, music,) except for GPS devices or cameras. Cell phones may be brought for an emergency but must remain turned off. I don't even wear a watch when I go camping. The only thing electric that I used on last camping trip was a flashlight and camera.
