Ten Recommended Activities During Camping

Jul 15, 2008
Activities are an essential part during camping otherwise, it would only be boring and you will all go home frustrated. Camping usually involves long days and long nights if you plan to take two to three days off your city life and spend it in the wilds. We can split the activities into two groups. You can have one group being in day time and the other during night time.

Day time activities:

- Hiking. You and your camp mates would explore the camp area by doing hiking. This is especially true if someone in your group knows the area too well. Another alternative would be to hire someone from that place to accompany your adventure.

- Fishing. More often than not best camp sites are those that are near to lakes teeming with fish. Your group can make a contest of whoever gets the largest fish wins. This is a fun game not only to fish enthusiast but also to those who have no fishing background especially when the prize is tempting.

- Cooking fest. You can divide the group into two and let them cook the most delicious dish they could muster using only native ingredients. These ingredients may be been brought to the camp which are previously bought or those that can be found on the camp site because usually sites have many vegetables growing in those areas. You just have to make sure nothing poisonous is included for that matter though.

- Sack race. Again splitting the group into two, this can be a very fun game. Played like any normal racing would. However instead of silly prizes, you can have a prize like winners can relax for the night and losers will take care of everything from food to massage.

- Egg relay. The object of this game is still whoever first one who finishes wins. With just the addition that the egg used during relay should still be intact until the end otherwise the player who cracks the egg will go back to the starting point and will do it all over again.

Night time activities:

- Bon fire horror stories. Gather everyone around and let everyone take turns telling their horror stories. It is fun doing this not only to kill time but also to see who has strong bones and heart that could stand fear.

- Truth or dare game. This game is better played at night. I have experienced it during night time and it has been more fun than playing it during day. Each one should have questions and consequence ready for the one who is about to do them on each cycle of the bottle.

- Drinking game. I have put this during night time because it is just appropriate that participants could go directly to bed after the game. Otherwise, if you put this during day time, the participants could no longer be able to participate more activities because of too much alcohol consumption.

- Barbecue party. The most common activity where you will be able to socialize with each other.

- Getting to know bonfire. This is the kind of activity that will let you know each other if not well then relatively better by taking turns in introducing some likes and dislikes that each of you has.

There are still a lot of activities you can think of, however personally I find the above effective and fun.
