Camping with anyone can be stressful. Especially when they aren't seasoned campers. Camping with 11 people is even more stressful. Make 5 of those people from another family... even more stress. Now lets say that 4 of those people are under 18 years of age and 2 are between 19-21. It becomes a mess.
But, it all worked out in the end. We went swimming at the beach before the rest of the clan arrived. We roasted marshmellows, had BBQ food, went rafting, played football, went fishing, and went on the lake with rented canoes. It was a good time.
