Make a Game Plan – Literally! Our Favorite Camping Games

Ready to turn your camping trip from “meh” into “marvelous”? All you need is a few great camping games that everyone in your family will enjoy! Here are some of our favorite camping games below.

Nature Scavenger Hunts

Find some free online nature scavenger hunt printables or design your own. Include different animals (indigenous to your camping locale, of course!), animal scat, or leaves, pinecones, acorns, and more. You might even add in other campground iconic visuals like campfires, trail guide signs, bicycles, or camp chairs. The sky is the limit!

Camping Games

Campfire Races

Got teens? Fuel their competitive edge by putting them in charge of building the campfire. Give them a couple sets of flint fire starters and safe fire building parameters. Let them race to see who can build a campfire without a lighter or other traditional fire starting tricks.

Camping Games

Board Games

Make a plan for days the weather keeps you inside. Scout board game forums and YouTube video reviews/tutorials for new board games. If you’re more of the classic board gamer like Monopoly or Sorry!, pack them along, but you may want to consider some newer games that take cooperative effort (that is, everyone wins or loses together). Some of our family favorites include:

  • Mysterium
  • Forbidden Desert
  • Forbidden Island
  • Pandemic (might be stressful during this time, but also enlightening and educational as well!)

Competitive but friendly games our entire family enjoys include:

  • Splendor
  • Lanterns
  • Battle Sheep
  • Hey, That’s My Fish
  • Boh-nanza
  • Loot

Having a literal game plan for your camping trip helps ensure you make the most of the time you have with your family. We hope to see you soon at Holly Shores Camping Resort, enjoying making memories with your kids.
