10 Fun Kids Camping Activities

Childrens Camping Activities

It's almost camping season and for those families out there that enjoy camping, you really look forward to this time of year. It presents a great opportunity to get the family together outdoors and away from the day-to-day routine. Camping is fun and adventerous way to spend spring and summer with the family. Spending time together in the great outdoors can be a great way to experience something new, however, the kids can easily bored if you haven’t prepared them with an array of activities to keep them occupied and having a good time. Most kids are sure to all of the normal grilling and sleeping in the tent type stuff, but those other times of relaxation should be accounted for as well to ensure everyone gets some fun and relaxation too. Taking steps to plan and prepare before setting out on a new adventure can make a world of difference. To help give you some ideas, we have put together a  list of ways to keep your children entertained on your next camping trip!

Junior Ranger Programs
There are many junior Ranger programs offered in both federal and state parks. These programs take place throughout the summer season, with activities that vary from park to park and state to state. All of the programs are tailored towards kids of all ages.

With these programs your child will be able to participate in many activities that teach ecology, geology, history, wildlife, plants, safety and other topics revolving around camping and the great outdoors. These events usually last for about one hour each day. Some parks even feature programs designed specifically for teens and tweens.

Water Fun
Water fun is something that children of all ages can appreciate. It is worth camping near a lake, river or an ocean (or bring an inflatable pool if these are not available) when kids are along for the trip. They’ll love being so close to water and you can be sure there will never be a dull moment.

Scavenger Hunts
Scavenger Hunts are fun for the whole family, taking an ordinary hike and turning it into something extraordinary. The possibilities are endless for your scavenger hunt, and there are ideas that are suitable for children of all ages. Ideas include looking for things along the hike that start with the letter “L” or taking pictures of all of the insects that you can find for an insect scrapbook. There are many possibilities, and this encourages the kids in so many ways.

Books
Although not technically a camping specific adventure, taking a few books on trip with you for the kids is a good idea. If your child enjoys reading they’ll certainly enjoy a bit of rest and  relaxation after a day filled with adventure.

Tossing Games
There are plenty of fun tossing games for you to choose from that will certainly bring out all of the camping fun for your family. Horseshoes are one game to consider that will have the whole family up in arms. You can create your own game by making a circle in the dirt by either drawing one with a stick or making a circle out of pebbles. Then take turns tossing pine cones and who ever gets closest to the middle wins!

Ghost Stories
Where better to tell a scary haunting tale than on a camping site? This is a sure way to spook the whole family while providing endless fun. Make sure to keep stories age appropriate.

Yahtzee
Although a bit unconventional, Yahtzee is a fun dice game that keeps the conversation going and lets everyone spend time together next to the campfire. There are now even travel Yahtzee games which are smaller and a bit easier to transport. Of course, any board game of your choosing can be a lot of fun too!

As you can see there are a ton of ways that you can ensure that your kids are enjoying the camping adventure that your family is taking.  Make sure that you use as many of these methods as possible to plan the perfect camping trip for your family.

If you have any ideas that you would like to share, please let us know in the comments and have fun camping with your kids! If you like www.KidsDesk.net, please share this article and others on your favorite social media account, we couldn't do it without you!
