Camping Activities for Kids
When planning camping activities for kids, it’s important to choose activities that will help students learn about the natural world and how to take care of it.
One great way to do this is to set up a “campfire” in your classroom using a small table or box. Place a few rocks around the edge of the “fire” to represent logs, and add some red and orange tissue paper for flames.
Students can take turns adding “wood” to the fire and talking about how different materials burn. You can also use this opportunity to teach students about “Leave No Trace” principles, such as packing out all trash and not disturbing plants or animals.
Other great camping activities include setting up a tent in your learning space, going on a nature hike, or playing games that teach about safety in the outdoors.
By choosing activities that are both fun and educational, you can help your students fall in love with the outdoors and develop a lifelong appreciation for nature.
