The big questions are: Where are you located, and how old/physically fit are the kids?

Other good questions are: Do you own or can you borrow any gear? Exactly what do you mean by "basic day hikes"?

General advice: Every experienced hiker started out as an inexperienced hiker. Don't let all the advice intimidate you, just start with the gear and fitness level and experience you have now. You'll make mistakes, we all did. Learn from them and try again. I guarantee there are hikes and camping trips within your reach.
