To start out camping with a family, All the little things needed will add up quickly.
Look around for a rental place and rent the equiptment for the first time out. That will give you an idea if your family will enjoy camping.
Over the past 60 years I have camped with everything from tents to motor homes. If I were to start out on a budgut - I would look into a used popup camper. Everything you need will be in there except food and clothing.

Fortunately I've got everything I need to camp except the tent. Me and my Grandpa camped out a good bit and I got alot of my equipment from him. So, when I was young, about the only thing my buddies and I ever skimped on when camping was the tent. As it stands I do have things like pots and pans, stove (and when I can get it from Dad's shop, an oven), canteens, cots, sleeping bags, back packs,etc, etc, etc. The old tent I mentioned is also still around, and in good shape. Unfortunately, like the oven, it's locked up in Dad's shop and caught up in their whole 'divorce saga'.

That said, I still always enjoyed more of the 'rough it' style of camping and really never used alot of the 'conveniences' even though I had them. By that I mean I liked cooking by wrapping the food and putting it the in the hot coals instead of using pots and pans, etc, etc. Basically just getting away from the 'modern things' and enjoying 'getting back to nature'.

While I enjoy all of the modern comforts just as much as the next guy I want my wife and daughter to learn, and they want to learn, how to do things 'the hard way' as part of the camping experience. If they can handle 'the hard way' then they ought to be prepared for anything the great outdoors can throw their way. Once they get to that point we can bring in the conveniences.
