QUESTION

When camping in more remote areas with young kids, how can you make sure they don't take a stroll and get lost in the middle of the night?

We won't be near lights, established "bathrooms", etc. The adults will be asleep as well, and I'm hoping for a solution that does not involve sleeping in shifts.

ANSWER

The other two answers mention 'summer camp' type environments. My answer is more focused at family camping, but has some relevance to both:

In any case, make sure they have good torches (flashlights) and a whistle before going out alone.
