3 Fun Campsite Games you probably haven’t tried.

We enjoy lounging around the campsite, sometimes doing nothing, relaxing in our camping hammock, and often enjoying an adult beverage. But we like to be active and have fun with the family as well. Here are a few of our favorite games to play at the campsite.

Glow in the dark bocce ball: This is definitely a modern twist on an old classic. This game is traditionally played during the day,and on dirt or asphalt courts. The game starts by tossing a small ball or “jack” out onto the court. Then each opponent “bowls” their ball in attempt to be the closest one to the jack. Bocce traditionalists would probably cringe at our campsite style of play, but the mixed surface and terrain of a campsite, the orbs glowing at night, and potential obstacles such as tree trunks and fire pits add a to the excitement.    LED Bocce sets are available online for around 50 bucks, and can provide hours of entertainment for both kids and adults.


Giant Jenga: Jenga is usually an indoor game played on a small table out countertop.   The game is often exciting and filled with tension as the tower grows, and become increasingly unstable.   But you know what really adds to the tension and the fun? Making it giant! Giant Jenga is a hit at almost any campsite.   You an buy Giant Jenga online for around $30 or if you are the handy type, you can get some extra satisfaction from building your own.



Potato Sack Races: Remember these from when you were a kid? You basically hop to the finish line with your entire body in sack. The obvious question is? Where do i find a potato sack? Well it might not be a bag that actually carried potatoes, but the internet can deliver a set of “racing” bags to your door for under $20, and it will be money well spent. You’ll get some good laughs, and you’ll get your blood pumping. Be careful, or the kids will definitely out hop you on this one.

  1. A great game to play when new folks are around is, “I’m going camping and I’m taking , , ,”. Start off naming anything you want and follow the pattern.
    “I’m going on a camping trip/picnic and I’m taking an aardvark.” Everyone (well, people that know) together says, “You can go camping.”
    Next person says, “I’m going on a camping trip and I’m taking a balloon.”
    Everyone together says, “You can go camping.”
    The new person is scratching their head, wondering why someone would take an aardvark camping. “I’m going on a camping trip and I’m taking a tent!” Who can argue with taking a tent camping.
    Everyone together, “You can’t go camping.” Next!!!

    You can go A-Z, every other letter, go backwards, skip three letters. It’s cool because before anyone figures out the pattern, everyone is clueless!!!
