Planning a camping trip? Don’t forget the games! I’ve rounded up 10 Fun Camping Games and Activities the whole family will love.
We spent a few days during spring break camping with a three other families and we all agreed that there would be no electronics allowed. We were officially unplugged so we call all unwind and relax without any distractions.
Well, this meant that we needed ways to keep the kids entertained. They had a playground at the campground and hiking trails but we needed fun games and activities that we could all play together around the cabin we were staying in. Not only am I sharing 10 games and activities to enjoy while camping, but they are perfect for kids of all ages – even the adults who still act like kids:)
Fun Camping Games and Activities for the whole family
Grab some sticks, rocks, and pine cones and play tic tac toe. This is a classic game that will keep everyone busy.
This does require a cell phone and we declared our camping trip an electronics free vacation but using the Geocaching app was an exception because we love going on a treasure hunt. You can also make your own Geocaching Swag to leave when you discover one.
Print out these cards and go on a scavenger hunt. I’ve also created blank cards for the older kids to fill out themselves.
Flashlight Hide and Seek
Okay, my friends – this is an awesome game to play while camping after the sun goes down. Grab those flashlights and play Hide and Seek.
Paint Kindness Rocks
We did this while camping and had a blast. Then we went around the park and hid our Kindness Rocks. We also looked around to see if we could find other kindness rocks but we didn’t have any luck with that.
This is awesome! Definitely a fun camping game especially when it’s hot outside.
These can be made before camping or make them while sitting around the campfire. A fun game for everyone!
You can never have too many glow-in-the-dark games to play.
Another fun game to play with glow sticks. Don’t forget to pack lots of glow sticks while camping.
