Julie Garden-Robinson, North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension food and nutrition specialist and professor of health, nutrition and exercise sciences, was recently elected President-elect of National Association.

Several years ago, we bought a tent for our family. My husband and kids put it up in the backyard for a makeshift camping experience. They were quite excited about sleeping outside.

In full disclosure, I went in the house after my husband and kids fell asleep in the tent. The ground was lumpy, and it was kind of chilly and damp that night.

I seem to recall a pesky fly buzzing near me.

Seriously, why would I sleep on the ground with numerous comfortable beds available within a short walking distance?

However, if we had a camper with a TV, air conditioning and kitchenette with a microwave oven and refrigerator, I probably could be convinced to “camp.”

After my kids awakened, I made breakfast in our house and we ate outside. I think they noticed I was not with them all night.
