There are so many ways, these days, to capture photos of our camping trips that it can almost make saving them more complicated. And, it can be hard to get to that project once you’re back home again with home and work calling for your attention.
You may not be the scrap booking type. If that’s the case, you’ll find any of the numerous online photo book making companies will make that job much easier for you. You can check out Shutterfly, Snapfish, or Mixbook for this service. They all make it easy to upload your photos, choose a layout, add comments, and then have the whole thing printed and shipped to your door. They are competitively priced and have good reviews from those who’ve used their services.
If you are a do-it-yourselfer you can have your photos printed and then add them to your own creative designs in your scrapbook. You might want to theme each page per event, per person, per group, or keep things random. It’s all up to you once you start planning.
Be sure to keep your photos protected by storing them away from humidity and dust. A shelf in an upstairs bedroom is better than a shelf in the basement. Make sure they are stored flat and any paper you use should be non-acidic. If you use adhesives to glue the photos into books, be sure to select adhesives that were made for this type of work. Some can damage the paper and photos over time.
It can be hard to carve out enough time to organize and store your photos but it’s an effort you’ll be glad you took in later years. The kids will love looking through the albums and maybe even showing them off to their own kids later on. We hope all your camping memories are good ones and we look forward to seeing you around the campground for many years to come.
