Camping is an opportunity for great fun and activities. Additionally, it is an experience you can customize your family’s interests according to the season and destination. To avoid brain storm times with your family, here is our excellent checklist for camping activities
- CATCH THE FLAG
You will need brain, speed and strength to win this. In case you don’t remember the rules: Divide into two groups and choose a location for each group. Each group hides the flag in its place, and the goal is to retrieve the other team’s flag and return it to your group’s location. Any player in the opposition area can be marked and placed in “prison,” and his teammates will have to come and mark to save them. Get ready to hone those skills!
Charades are simple: People write clues on a piece of paper, and players have to imitate and make their teammates guess their trail without saying a word.
Round 1: Players can encourage their teammates to guess their direction using words as advice, as long as the words are not written on paper.
Round 2: Once all the tracks from Round 1 are guessed, the same papers go back to the Round 2 container. At this point, players can only use one word as advice to their teammates.
Round 3: The same paper goes back to the container again, and the last round is wordless charades around. Not to mention!
- SCAVENGER HUNT
Make children aware of the environment by challenging them to see different animals, trees, leaves and plants. If you want, you can distribute paper bags and have kids collect some of the items, and then make an art project on their findings.
- MAD LIBS
Mad Libs has been around forever, but it never grows old. Young and old alike find themselves giggling at the ridiculous stories of filling in stories caused by random naming, verbs, or adjectives.
- SPOTTING THE STARS
You don’t even need a telescope to try to look at the stars. If you’re not used to identifying different planets and constellations, there are plenty of apps that can tell you where you’ve been – and most of them are free.
- CONTEST OF S’MORES
There is nothing wrong with a good old marshmallow, graham recipe and recipe, but this is your chance to try it. Try salted caramel s’mores, Thin Mint s’mores, or come up with your own crazy combinations. See who can come up with the most beautiful creations.
- CAMP TALK
This activity comes with 50 cards, each containing a stimulating question for the children to think about – you have to choose one, and everyone can take turns giving your answer. Best of all, this game packs a little and comes with a carabineer to stick it in your bag, so it’s not a packing problem.
- FRISBEE – GLOW IN THE DARK
Darkness adds another layer of challenge to some simple outdoor games. You can make a target game with a bright frisbee, or try the final game.
