10+ Summer Camping Activities for Kids

Did you know June is National Camping Month? Camping is a fun way for the whole family to spend time together in nature and get away from technology – even if it’s just backyard camping! We put together a checklist of our favorite activities to ensure there’s never a dull moment – or a hungry camper.


  1. Tell stories or read a book together by the campfire.
  2. Make S’mores. Go for a classic graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallow combination. Try adding a Watermelon Organic Ring for a fun twist. For backyard camping, make this Campfire S’mores Fudge ahead of time.
  3. Play a boardgame. There’s nothing like a little competition to bring on the family bonding.
  4. Go for a nature hike. Explore a nearby park or trail that you haven’t been to before. Pack Organic DelishFish as a snack to re-energize.
  5. Go on a bike ride.
  6. Stargaze. Lay down some blankets and don’t forget the snacks!
  7. Try birdwatching.
  8. Test your drawing skills. Find a pretty nature backdrop and start sketching.
  9. Go on a scavenger hunt. Hide items around the campsite (or backyard) then give kids a list. Hide our Organic Fruity Bears for a sweet surprise.
  10. Play flashlight tag – a classic outdoor game.
  11. Blow bubbles.
  12. Make a camping-inspired craft.
  13. Go kayaking or swimming with adult supervision.
  14. Help the environment by picking up trash.
