Family camping activities from Jellystone Parks: Never run out of things to do on your next trip!

Family Camping Activities

Although summer is winding down, there's still plenty of time to take a camping trip! If you need some inspiration for your next adventure, read on for some family-friendly, kid-approved activities!

Twig castles 

Your kids enjoy making sandcastles at the beach, so why not make some out of twigs they collect all around your campsite? Because you may have some difficulty keeping the sticks together, make sure to bring some glue, strings, and scissors along.

Stories around the campfire 

This old classic is a tried and true favorite. The stories can range from childhood laughs to scary ghost stories; you can even have the group collaborate on a story! Have one person start, then ask the next person to contribute a sentence, and so on and so forth.

Scavenger hunt with a nature walk 

Mix two activities into one! Go on a nature walk or hike and have a list of things to find Some ideas include:
  • A heart-shaped leaf
  • A feather
  • A pinecone
  • Something a raccoon would like to eat
  • Something of every color of the rainbow
  • Something fuzzy
  • Something that makes noise
  • Two pieces of garbage (to throw out, of course!)
  • A piece of treasure
Whoever gets the most on the list wins a prize!

Fairy Houses 

Make houses for homeless fairies! Collect wood, twigs, rocks, and feathers for your construction materials, and place a little door next to a tree trunk - this will let the fairy know she is welcome there! Remember to make it as beautiful as you possibly can, because fairies are picky, and obviously only deserve the best!
