Like some of the others on here, my kids are a little young to do much help with the setup. At 5 & 6, they currently:
1) stay in the truck while I back into the spot.
2) take mommy for a walk to the washroom.
3) go with mommy to take the doggies for a walk so they can have their bathroom break too.
By that time, I've usually got the truck unhooked and the stabs down. Then they help with:
4) unpack the bike garage (which doesn't have any bikes)
5) help layout the outdoor rug (daddy stakes it down)
6) help mommy inside the trailer putting groceries away, setting up dog beds, etc...
At teardown they help with:
1) take doggies for a walk
2) take mommy to the bathroom
(This is when I maneuver the truck into place and hookup)
3) pickup Lego blocks
4) walk the site looking for missing toys
5) bring daddy whatever they can pickup so daddy can put it away (some things like their "rock", also known as a handful of gravel, collection often somehow gets forgotten to be packed)
Basically, as long as things aren't moving (truck, trailer, etc...) then they're free to help where they can.
