Tom Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes are taking their daughter Suri - and a member from the Church of Scientology - on a budget camping holiday
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are going camping.
The Hollywood couple are planning to take their two-year-old daughter Suri on a budget holiday across the US when Tom finishes promoting his new movie 'Valkyrie' at the end of the month.
But while Tom is taking the trip to "bond" with his family, they won't be alone - a religious adviser and a security team will accompany the trio at all times.
A source said: "They'll be accompanied by a friend from the Church of Scientology, as Tom never likes to be too far away from his religion.
"They will also have security camped down the road to keep any unwelcome people at bay.
"They are certainly likely to cause a bit of a frenzy. But the whole point of them moving away from luxury holidays is to do things as a normal family."
Another source added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "This is what Tom wants for Suri. He doesn't want her to miss out on the things he and Katie enjoyed as kids, just because she is growing up in the spotlight."
Tom, 46, reportedly started planning the trip when he spent time in the Brazilian jungle while in South America earlier this year.
He and Katie often went camping before the birth of their daughter and can't wait to spend time in the great outdoors again.
Katie said: "We love the outdoors. Once when we were camping Tom made his pasta carbonara for me.
"He knows exactly how to do it. A pinch of this, a pinch of that. He has a recipe, but he also kind of improvises by himself. You have to do the egg at a certain time."
But the 30-year-old former 'Dawson's Creek' star admitted she wouldn't be helping her husband with the campfire cooking.
She said: "I don't really cook that much, though I do make cupcakes."
