Camping is adventurous. It’s unpredictable and fun. It takes you out of your comfort zone and helps you see the world in different ways. There are many directions your camping trip can take. That’s what makes it so exciting!

Here are some of the most fun activities you can enjoy while camping:


Explore all the wonderful things that nature has in store for you. It changes minute-by-minute with the seasons so you’re sure to discover new things each day that you camp. Set out on a hike and unearth a world of possibilities at the campground. You’ll see things you never saw before because of the ever-changing environment you’re in.


If you love the idea of hunting for treasure, you’ll enjoy this activity thoroughly. People known as geocachers hide plastic and metal caches in various sizes in different locations for others to find. The geocaches contain a paper log and writing tool as well as prizes. Joining the geocaching website allows you to discover new caches as well as to record your finds.

Taking photos.

Capture the beauty and majesty that you discover while camping. You’ll be able to do so with ease with the right camera. You can use a DSLR, an action camera or even the camera feature on your phone to document your experience. An app like Snapseed or VSCO can help you edit your photos so they’re perfect for social media.


Check out the beautiful sky above you. Stargazing is a free activity that is incredibly rewarding to do. Buy or borrow a book from the library that helps you identify the constellations. Then take turns trying to guess which are prominent in the sky.
