The Campground Kid was born in July 2014 in Brunei. We moved back to New Zealand and to The Campground when she was just over two years old. That often feels like just yesterday, but somehow she is now a school kid. She loves stories, her guinea pigs, swimming, playing with her friends, and ice cream.
Campground Mama is the one who writes most of this blog (well, tbh, I write it all). I used to work in Organisational Development, and I love training and managing teams and projects. I also love writing, yoga, op shops, crafts, singing with my choir, and political discussions. I don’t make enough time for any of that at the moment, but I’m hoping that a quiet winter in The Campground will restore the balance somewhat.
Campground Papa was an engineer in a previous life. He’s the hands on and practical doer of the family, and is usually willing to just give things a go. He is smart and funny and although he’s not the chattiest of dudes, when he does have something to say, it’s usually something worth hearing. He loves podcasts, photography, indie music, mountain biking, and movies.
Campground Papa and I have been together for ages, and The Campground Kid slotted right in. We couldn’t imagine life without her, and I couldn’t imagine jumping into this crazy adventure without these fools.
