Camping in a conversion van is the perfect family-friendly vacation for those who are traveling on a budget and would like to get away from the stress of everyday city-living. At first thought, children may feel uncertain about camping if it means that they will have to be away from the technology that they use in everyday life. It is important to assure your children that there are still many different ways to have fun together without gaming devices, televisions and electricity. Camping is a great way to spend some quality time together without any distractions. These family camping games give you some great ideas of just how to have fun while out in the wilderness.

I Spy
The classic game of I Spy has been a family favorite for ages. Children and parents will use their thinking and looking skills to determine just what the other one has “spied”. One family member will start off the game by saying, “I spy with my little eye, something..” and then choose the color of the thing that they are thinking of. This object must be something that is clearly visible to all players. For example, if you’re thinking of the sky you may say, “I spy with my little eye, something blue”. Players will then take turns guessing what you are thinking of until one is correct. The player who guesses correctly will then have their turn to spy something. This game is a great way to pass time while taking in all of the things that are around you.

Scavenger Hunt
Plan a scavenger hunt around your campsite. Create a list that each member of the family will receive. Each person can have the same list or a list with different objects on it. These should be things that are commonly found while out camping such as different sizes or colors of rocks, types of leaves, sticks, creatures and more. Set a time limit for the scavenger hunt and send everyone out to start looking for their objects. Small children should always stay with adult so that they do not get lost. The first person who collects all of their scavenger hunt items is the winner. This camping game provides lots of fun while looking around to see what everyone was able to gather up.

Hide and Seek
A game of hide and seek is always fun for the whole family. When playing it in the wilderness, be sure to set boundaries so that children do not wander too far away from camp. Select the first person who will be the counter and have them cover their eyes while the rest of the group goes to find hiding spots. This may be behind a tree, inside a log or in the tent. Let your imagination run wild while trying to find a hiding spot that they are sure not to find. Take turns counting and hiding and see what kind of silly spots you find your family hiding in.
