Planning a camping trip? Don’t forget the games!  I’ve rounded up 10 Fun Camping Games and Activities the whole family will love.

Camping Games and Activities

We spent a few days during spring break camping with a three other families and we all agreed that there would be no electronics allowed.  We were officially unplugged so we call all unwind and relax without any distractions.

Well, this meant that we needed ways to keep the kids entertained. They had a playground at the campground and hiking trails but we needed fun games and activities that we could all play together around the cabin we were staying in.  Not only am I sharing 10 games and activities to enjoy while camping, but they are perfect for kids of all ages – even the adults who still act like kids:)

Grab some sticks, rocks, and pine cones and play tic tac toe.  This is a classic game that will keep everyone busy.

This does require a cell phone and we declared our camping trip an electronics free vacation but using the Geocaching app was an exception because we love going on a treasure hunt.  You can also make your own Geocaching Swag to leave when you discover one.
