Fun Camping Activities

While you might not be able to wait to go camping for some peace and quiet, that very same peace and quiet will bore the kids to death. Before you leave, you might want to come up with some games to keep the kids occupied – and you might even have fun with some of these games. Since you are going camping to relax, you’ll most like have a few days where you’ll stay at the camp site instead of going sightseeing.

No matter the size of the RV you bought – or are thinking of buying – from Leisure Time RV, the supplies for these games should fit in basement storage or under bed storage and won’t take up a ton of space.

  • Noah’s Ark: This is a memory game and is fun for the entire family. It’s a great game to play around a campfire, too. Sit in a circle, and then take turns listing the animals in Noah’s Ark – in alphabetical order. The first person says, “I’m going on Noah’s Ark and I’m bringing two apes.” The next person has to say the animals the previous people did, plus add his or her animals. For example, the next person would have to say, “I’m going on Noah’s ark and I’m bringing two apes and two birds.” If a person makes a mistake, he or she is out of the game. The last one in the circle wins the game.
  • SPUD: You’ll need a soft ball for this – a sponge ball will work perfectly. Form a circle with one person in the middle. Each camper is assigned a number. The person in the middle throws the ball straight up and yells a number. Everyone scatters except the person whose number was called. That person has to catch or pick up the ball. As soon as that person gets the ball, he or she yells “Spud.” Everyone freezes. That person can take three huge steps toward any other person and throws the ball at the other person. The other person must avoid the ball by moving any part of his or her body – except the feet. If the person gets hit, he or she gets an “S.” If not, the thrower gets the “S.” When a person gets all four letters (S-P-U-D), he or she is out of the game. The person with the least letters or the last person left is the winner.

There are many other games you can play with children of all ages – even the “adult children.” Make camping in your Leisure Time RV fun and relaxing for everyone – and be sure to stop by to pick up any supplies or to show us pictures of your trip.
