    6 Fun Camping Activities

    July 20, 2017

    Camping is fun: sleeping under the stars, making s'mores, taking in nature, but there's only so much sitting around a campfire that you can do before becoming bored. Here are six camping activities to keep the fun times rolling.

    1. Glow in the Dark Games

    Make your favorite outdoor party games night-ready with glow in the dark paint. You can paint Corn Hole boards, the rings for ring toss, and discs for Frisbee golf.

    2. A Classic Scavenger Hunt

    Comb the surrounding camp site in search of yellow leaves, rocks in funny shapes, or pine cones. Get creative with the list, but not too unrealistic.

    3. Enjoy the Water

    If you're lucky enough to be camping alongside a body of water, let the water be your entertainment. Have a rock skipping contest, go fishing, swimming, or canoeing. Consider bringing along some water balloons or water guns to make a game of tag more exciting.

    4. Storytelling and Singing

    For many people, reminiscing about camping trips includes hearing stories or singing around a glowing campfire. Sit back, relax, and do the same. You can even make some of the stories scary to get everyone's adrenaline pumping.

    5. Rainy Day Fun

    We all hope for beautiful weather during a camping trip, but you might get stuck inside your tent for a few hours during a rain storm. Pack playing cards or travel board games to help pass the time.

    6. Go for a Night Walk

    It takes our eyes about 15 minutes to adjust to complete darkness. Once adjusted, we can actually see very well. Take advantage of this skill with a night time walk. Check out the stars, you're bound to see a twinkling sky away from the city lights.
