That's a really good question.

As I see it, unless they had done a fair bit of camping in previous holidays, with a considerable share of the campsite "chores" carried by the children so that they had been observed being competant at campcraft, I would expect the idea of camping on the island would never even have been considered. Mother would have squashed it pretty quickly, perhaps offering them a camp at Darien as an alternative --sort of like the Beckfoot camp in PP.

I expect Mike's right with the "best knife ever" enthusiasm --which is also a pretty good quirk for AR to have picked up on and inserted into the story.
