Explore nature around you

Once camping, you cannot miss the most important and greatest part that is being closer to nature. For me, it is the core activity on every camping trip. This is priceless chance for you to explore nature around you.

It would be a great idea for you to go with your sibling, your friends or your parents and to find a nearby stream or a big tree to set up a tent. Female can go for catching fireflies, leaf collecting, or go in search for nuts, edible plants, and wild berries. Hunting for a scavenger and collecting dry wood are likely suitable for male guys. Taking notice of the time, do not go too far from assembly point.

After finishing these activities, everyone should come back to assembly place and relax in the green. You can lie down on the green, take a nap under the sun, and get fresh air, reading books, or set up a camp chair as well as camping tent, etc. This is time for you to relax your mind, connecting with nature. Remember to be always happy while camping

Go for Geocaching

You may find “Geocaching” rather new but it is really interesting. Let’s try it once and you will be addicted to it. In Geocaching game, the players will use a mobile device or a GPS-enabled device or other navigational methods to hide and seek “geocaches” (you can call it “caches”) anywhere.

A cache means a small waterproof container, which contains a logbook for geocachers to write the date they found it and sign their code name in it. Make sure that the player's place back the cache exactly after signing in the log.

This game is an adventuring and interesting way for you to explore the surroundings. With the simple rules and available devices, it is so regretful if you don’t insert Geocaching into your camping plan. Here is really one of the best things to do while camping you should enjoy.

Making campfire and play some games



Of course, you cannot go camping without a campfire. It will be a terrible mistake. Easily, from the dry wood, you collect, order it together and then light a fire. A campfire not only helps you easily see everything but also makes you warm at night.

In the daylight, you are able to use a campfire to organize a game of cooking food, for instance, cooking baked beans, corn fritters, beef, pork, fish, potatoes, etc. It would be the most awesome experience of your camp trip; you can eat the food you made, so wonderful!

At night, everyone will gather around the campfire and can have more fun with interesting games such as singing, dancing, playing guitar, tell scary stories each other or playing truth or dare game. Really, it is extremely fantastic, you just feel free to dive in music and games. Put this activity on your list of important things to do while camping.

Play outdoor games

By these active games, you are also able to test your ability of physical fitness, sportsmanship and coordination in a team. So, no need too much thought, just grab a ball and go for it. Have fun!
