The Smart Camper’s Voice: Have Fun in the Outdoors
Fun Activities to Do While Camping
Camping is a lot of fun by itself, regardless of our age! Sleeping outdoors and getting away from the day-to-day routine can be very relaxing, but you also have much more free time than usual, so it is important to think about fun things to do, like water activities, sports, or even table and traditional games. Here’s what we would do for a fun and memorable camping.
Water Camping Activities
There are tons of interesting things you can do in water, especially if your campsite is near a lake, river, or pool. Some of these activities may be energizing, while others can be a little bit more relaxing. Some of the relaxing options available are skipping stones, building a sand castle, fishing, and swimming. You can ride a boat, a canoe, a wave runner, or a kayak. Also, there are more challenging sports like water skiing, water volleyball or basketball, snorkeling, zorbing, and more. Even if your campsite is not near a lake or a river, you can still play with water. There are many ways to cool off a hot day. For example, you can have a water balloon fight, play with squirt guns, build water slides, etc.
Physical Activities and Sports
Of course, since you are in nature, there are a lot of sports and physical activities that you can do while camping. Pick the sport that suits your style and have fun playing it. You can play Frisbee golf, horseshoes, ring toss, corn hole, lawn bowling, etc. There are also more traditional ones like soccer, football, kickball, and baseball. Some are a little bit more challenging like biking, hiking, and rock climbing.
Play Store-Bought Games
- Spot it! One of our favorites. It is fun, exciting, and challenging.
- Regular Card Deck. This is also a great article to have with you, as there are many options for how to use it.
- Other card games appropriate for camping are Uno, Old Maid, Phase 10, Five Crowns, Fluxx, Rook, Quiddler, and Apples to Apples. Another good option is to bring some cool board games, especially if you have a picnic table or any other flat surface to play on. Even a simple piece of paper and a pencil can be useful at a campsite, as it gives you the possibility to play Hangman, Tic-Tac-Toe, and Dots.
- Last but not least, there is the all-time favorite, Charades. This ensures laughter every time.
