If you’ve never gone camping before or if you’ve never even camped in your own backyard, then you’re about to learn the best of the best when it comes to outdoor camping activities. Not only are there more things to do than ever before, but you can do it without any special camping equipment! Here’s ten Outdoor Camping Activities for Teenagers:
Who says it has to be burgers, hot dogs and nachos? You’ve really made it now! You are in the outdoors, with no tents, no stoves and no grills. The camping trip is well under way and you are in the woods. Suddenly you hear the dreaded “I am tired” from deep inside. You decide to take a break for a little bit while the kids come back from their camping trip and now you have to make a quick sandwich and take the kids to the park.
Playing Hide and Seek
This is a fun activity for a group of children. The idea is that you take some small toys out of the playroom and set up a tent nearby. Then each child hides, hoping to be discovered by their sibling.
Pin the Trail
This is definitely one of those games where the fun is in having fun! In order to play, all you need to do is get someone to start walking around in circles with the ball between his/her legs. If he/she falls, he/she has to start over and the next person to fall gets to keep the ball. When everyone has finished, whoever gets to keep the ball has to take it to his/her house. There, it’s put back into play until someone loses it.
With the world being as dry as it is, there’s no doubt that water sports will become more popular in the future. But before you get too far ahead of yourself, take a moment to consider that you may not want to be on the open water if you have small children. If that’s the case, why not try water skiing, wakeboarding, canoeing or wake boarding instead? Or maybe even kayaking? There are a variety of water sports you can do that don’t involve boats or anything else boating related and still provide some fun.
