One of the best ways to relax and rejuvenate is to reconnect with the nature around you and going camping or glamping is an excellent way to do that! When you’re out enjoying the backwoods for a nature adventure, there’s plenty to keep you busy, including exploring, fishing, hiking or biking. But when the sun begins to set and you gather your friends and family around the campfire, you might want a few options for some entertainment to keep you or the kids busy! It can be intimidating to take the kids glamping if they get bored easily, but we’re here to tell you it’s impossible to run out of activities to keep their little brains busy! Here are some fun ideas to keep you entertained, for kids and adults alike, on your next glamping adventure!
The best parts of camping can be the shenanigans had around the fire at night! A game of campfire charades is a great way to stay entertained, as well as singing campfire songs. If you play guitar or ukulele, camping or glamping is the perfect time to bust out your instrument and play some songs to sing along to! Games like telephone, one word stories, 20 questions, I spy, name that tune, two truths and a lie and plenty of other word games or games that don’t require anything but your minds are perfect for the commute to the campsite, to play around the campfire or before going to bed. Family love is another great game to play before bed! Going around in a circle and sharing one or two things each person loves about their family can become a family tradition and a lovely way to end the night feeling warm and cozy as a family!
Board Games, Card Games, Lawn Games
Be sure to check if the glamping or camping site you’re staying at has any kind of board games or other sorts of games you can borrow for the duration of your stay to keep occupied. For example, our glamping resorts provide cards, some board games and puzzles for you to enjoy while you stay with us! Come armed with your favourite card games, such as crazy eights, war, go fish, slapjack or snap. Of course, if it’s a girl’s or guy’s weekend, poker, rummy, blackjack or cribbage are fair game. If you want to bring board games with you, we encourage this! Apples to Apples, Monopoly, Clue, Uno, Jenga, Snakes and Ladders, Catan, Scrabble, Scategories, Sorry!, Trivial Pursuit or Guess Who are some fantastic board games to get you started and some of our favourites to play with the kids! If you’re looking for lawn games, think bocce ball, croquet, ladder ball toss, cornhole, spikeball or ring toss to bring along with you. These are not essential items to bring with you on your glamping excursion, but they can be a fun addition to your packing list!
There are plenty of ways to stay occupied during your glamping adventure and these are just a few of the ideas we have to keep you and the kids entertained! More fun ideas of things to prepare for your trip are activities like scavenger hunts that you can customize to search for local flora and fauna. This can be a great way for the kids to learn something new about where they’re staying! Flashlight tag, hide and seek in the dark or telling ghost stories are more great ways to stay entertained, but sometimes the most novel thing to do is bring along a projector and a sheet to have an outdoor movie night, paired with popcorn and snacks made over the fire. When you’re glamping, you don’t have to sacrifice the pleasures and comforts of our modern lifestyles and that’s why you can be assured you’ll be falling asleep on the most luxurious bed with the most breathtaking views to wake up to.
