Camping Party Games and Activities

My two youngest boys have summer birthdays one week apart, so joint birthday parties are perfect for us. However, it's always a challenge to come up with a party theme that works for everyone, but "camping" party games and activities are fun for ALL ages. Today I am sharing the details of the camping party games and activities from our party.


All of my boys' often get called "Bellzie" (because our last name is Bell), so the name of our camp was "Camp Bellzie", and I posted a simple camp schedule. Our schedule included: a scavenger hunt, games, a prize bunch, supper, cake, making s'mores, and crafting a candy kabob.


The scavenger hunt was a highlight for the party guests. I set it up before the guest arrived, and broke the kids into teams. The scavenger hunt had puzzles to solve, clues to find, and challenges to do. It was a lot of fun!



In the end, everyone got a prize... and the first people back got first picks of the prizes.


The kids also played a variety of games. I put a bunch of balls and Frisbees on the lawn, and the kids made up their own games. I also had a booth for "guess the number of jellybeans in the jar".


Of course, a camp out wouldn't be complete without some toasted marshmallows and s'mores. I set up a little s'more bar stand by the fire pit, and the kids loved it! 


The kids also enjoyed making their own candy kabobs and playing chocolate bar bingo.



Finally, the kids were all able to try their luck with our prize punch. Prize punches are staples at all our parties, and you can read all about them here.


There are so many fun ways to entertain kids at birthday parties, but I think these camping party games and activities are extra fun. Have you ever hosted a "camping" party for your kids? What were your favourite games and activities?
