Fun and Easy Camping

A camping adventure can be an excellent opportunity to take the family out for fresh air and bonding.

Outdoor Movies

Most people love camping but have no idea what to do on their next camping trip. Below are a few activities for those who want camping but don’t know what to do when they get there. These can be fun and allow you to burn off some pent-up energy.

Your Area

Find out if there are any outdoor movies in your area or if you have a projector and movies you can borrow from a friend, then set up a tent in the backyard or camp out under the stars.

Scavenger Hunt

You can make your scavenger hunt or get a pre-made one. These are fun to share with friends and family. They can be free if made yourself, or you can purchase these online, at camping stores, or through subscription-based websites.

Campfire Cooking

Even if you weren’t planning on camping when you left home and didn’t have any supplies, you could still cook. There are a variety of recipes online for campfire cooking that can be done with just sticks and some hot coals. 

Music and Dance

These aren’t necessarily healthy meals, but they certainly are delicious. This activity may be a bit risky to do with others. But if you want to try, get a portable CD player and some CDs you know everyone will like. 

Outdoor Sports

Then turn off the lights and dance around the campfire or tent. This should be fun for everyone and shouldn’t be too difficult to do without falling over, so long as you can find your balance. There are many different activities that you can do outdoors that don’t require any gear. If you have a ball or Frisbee, playing catch while dangling over a creek or on the beach is a great way to get in shape and enjoy the fresh air.

Camping Charades

This game is like regular charades but is done outside and with camping supplies around the campsite instead of acting out words or phrases by using people in your group as objects. If you have a large group, you could form a circle and take turns acting out phrases for each person in the circle to guess.

Many people might choose a camping trip because they want to unplug their electronics, but if you aren’t ready for that, you can always play board games. There are even camping versions of popular board games that you can purchase at camping stores.

Marshmallow Roasting

You can get marshmallows at most grocery stores, but if you don't have any nearby, you can hunt for them in the woods and make yourself a campfire. This is a great way to roast marshmallows because the sticks work to heat them evenly and evenly cook them
