Organizing a few camping games can be a fun way to keep the young campers occupied and out of the tents! From campfire songs to treasure hunts to a mini-Olympics (if you’re really daring), there are plenty of camping activities and ideas for everyone to enjoy.
If you’ve ever watched a group of kids make up a neighborhood game, their ingenuity can be really entertaining. It usually starts with an object (a ball), and then the rules get debated: “The big tree is out of bounds”….”The mailbox is base”…”If you hit the telephone pole it’s 3 points”…etc… It amazes me how kids came make a game up in almost any environment. Camping games can be just as spontaneous and creative...without knocking down the tent or jumping over the campfire!
Depending on the age of your campers, there are some really fun and creative ways to enjoy the outdoor environment. Below are a few ideas to get you started. Some take more time to organize than others, but each can make your next campout that much more enjoyable:
I hope the above list gave you some good ideas for your next camping adventure. You might also enjoy the camping activity page with some fun camping craft ideas for kids of all ages.
