Camping Activity Book for Kids
Get ready for adventure in the great outdoors! There’s so much to see and do when you’re out camping or hiking― even in your own backyard. Encourage kids to explore the world around them and learn important wilderness skills with this activity book. It’s full of projects and ideas to spark a love of nature and help kids have tons of fun outdoors.
Kids will learn to tackle survival challenges like
- building a shelter
- making a compass
- tying a bowline knot.
They can get creative with fun outdoor projects like
- designing a treasure hunt
- crafting a walking stick
- making a sundial
They’ll need an adult’s help for some of the activities but can also do many on their own. Sized perfectly for a kid’s backpack, this is everything camping books for kids should be.
- 35 fun outdoor activities―Kids will sign an oath promising to protect nature and then dive into activities. Everything from how to tell which way is true North to how to tell good campfire stories.
- Helpful organization―Activities are ordered so that one skill builds on the next and many can be done by kids on their own. Icons make it easy to quickly see which activities require the assistance of a parent or trusted adult.
- Camping tips and checklists for parents―Sometimes getting out the door is the hardest part of camping and hiking. You’ll get useful supply checklists and suggestions to make sure your child has everything they need for their outdoor adventures.
What others are saying:
"Our daughter Juniper just turned 5 and while we know she cannot read it herself just yet we are thrilled to add this book to our outdoor adventure collection. We were going to keep it in our camper but I’d rather keep it handy in our everyday backpack instead. There a lot of great activities with no supplies required and the ones that do need materials ask for basic household items that most have readily available. Looking forward to many years of use and fun. I’ve recommended it to a few friends already."
"This is a great book that your kids can use to enjoy camping more, or you can look at the ideas in it and introduce them to cultivate a love for camping and a desire to enjoy and preserve the environment in your kids. Here are a few of the many activities, ideas and information: instructions to use a head lamp and an empty milk jug to create an easily carried lantern, 8 versions of s'mores, information on identifying animal prints and excrement, instructions for a simple sundial, and so much more! This book is a great resource. Use it yourself or give a copy to each of your kids a week before your trip and let them tell you the things they learn and the things they want to do/make. A great resource!"

I love the ideas in this book! I honestly cannot wait to get outdoors with my kids, rain or shine, come what may. Because I can. This book is so empowering!!
Also, it might be the new book I gift friends who are on the fence about getting outside with their kids...
We got two copies, one to keep and one for a friend! Love the activities in this book and it gives the kids a reason to get outdoors, usually ending in hours of play.
This book is jammed packed with awesome activities. They are creative, easy to follow and easy to expand upon. We highly recommend this book!
Even as an experienced camping family, this book is already treasured! A valuable resource that has so many wonderful activities to help keep your kids occupied and entertained on any camping trip! A staple to any family wishing to keep fresh excitement in all their outdoor adventures! My kids from 3-12 have been able to enjoy many of the activities in this book and look forward to each and every time we pull it out!
The Camping Activity Book for Kids is a delightful read for families with accessible activities for families while camping and adventuring! Favorite activities our family has enjoyed include recipes for a variety of s'mores flavors, making a compass, and singing a silly song (think Mad Libs). Our kids have loved trying a new activity each time we camp or take an adventure day, so much so that this book lives in our car so it's always accessible! I absolutely appreciate that every activity is well-thought out to leave no trace and to be a good steward of the land. This book would make a great gift for families seeking new adventures or for those who need some fresh ideas!
