Nothing beats beating a parent at a board game and any child will vouch for it. Take along easy to pack board games like scrabbles, monopoly etc. For a twist of the wild, you could take some camping fun games too.


Register yourselves at any of the geocaches websites and use a GPS system to locate the caches created and finding the small trinkets kept there to be found out. A technologically advanced version of the Treasure Hunt, this one is sure to be a success with the kids today.


Turn your camping expedition more exciting by adding a hike on a nature trail to it. There are hordes of things you can do while you go hiking, ranging from photography to collecting leaf samples. Just be creative and do as you please to make the most of the hike.


Who has heard of a camping trip without a campfire? Build a roaring campfire with bits of twigs and firewood collected by all in the family and sit around it doing nothing or chatting up a storm. If music is what moves you then join in a full throated concert in the wild where the stars are all your family members.

Telling Stories

And while you are near that campfire, regale your kids with your story telling talents. The children will love it.
