Camping Games

A Camping Scavenger Hunt is Sure "fire" Fun!

Looking for fun camping games to take with you as you plan to head to the woods for a weekend getaway with the family or the youth group? 

A camping scavenger hunt is a must to bring along. It's a great camping activity ready-made for the outdoors.

Here's a list of items that I've compiled that are typically found at a campground and/or in the pile of camping items that most folks bring along in their car. Feel free to add your own when you get to your campsite and delete those that don't work for your location. 

As safe and enjoy the hunt!

(Please visit our scavenger hunt rules page for some safety guidelines to think about.)
