I like to go camping because my family loves it/that. I try to go camping at least once a month, but it’s to hard to make time for that.
I usually go camping in spring and fall.
1. In winter, it’s too cold to stay outside,
2. In winter, it’s so cold that we can't stay outside,
In summer, we prefer cooler areas like swimming pools, beaches, etc.

Could you let me know if the underlined parts are correct?

1. "It" is more natural to me.

2. I would say "cooler places".

How do you tell the difference between "it" and "that"? When to use each?

I think "that" is more specific that "it"

Perhaps:

I like to go camping because my family enjoys it, and it makes me happy for us to have fun together.

I try to go camping at least once a month, but sometimes I can't find the time.

You could also say make the time.

Perhaps:

In the winter it's too cold to go camping. In the summer it's too hot.

Re: Camping in the fall and spring

Can you say both "find the time" and "make the time"?

The indefinite article could be omitted in both phrases.

Unfortunately, I can't give myself any likes.

They are used somewhat differently.
