Regarding trail Rambler Peak near Campbell River, BC

I'm hoping to take my two 7 year old twins on their first "adventure" hike now that I'm living in the area. We've done the car camping thing but I think they are old enough to enter into the back country. I was thinking of breaking up the hike over 3 days to give my kids lots of time for breaks and just have fun. Day 1 to Tennent Lake to set up camp. Day 2 to attempt to summit then back to Day 1 camp at Tennent Lake. Then Day 3 back home. From anyone who has done this trail before, am I biting off more than I can chew?

I'm going off the philosophy, keep it fun, lots of breaks, lots of treats and see how far we can go. Even on sketchier sections, I've got rope and harnesses for all of us, if I needed to assist in any scrambling or just want to keep them attached to me. I want to feed their sense of adventure without killing it.
