Camping Party Ideas

Decorating for a camping party is easy because nature does all of the work for you! The great outdoors is full of all of the campout essentials: trees, crickets chirping, starry skies... Try to set up your campsite so that it seems as remote as possible.

The main thing that you will need to do is create a campsite. Even camping in the basement can be fun, it you create a camp like atmosphere.

If your camper's will be sleeping over, make sure that you have a tent big enough to sleep all of the kids that are coming. If you don't have a large tent borrow one from a neighbor or Scout leader or rent one if necessary.

If your local laws allow it, set up a stone campfire or fire pit area. (If indoor and you have a fireplace, use that.) Keep a bucket of water handy in case your fire needs to be doused.

Set out large logs to sit on around the campfire.

Hang lanterns from poles.

Use fun signs (like "Don't feed the bears") and place them around the campsite.

Ask a friend to play guitar and lead the group in favorite campfire songs when it gets dark.

Gather large pointed sticks (for ages 7 and up) to roast marshmallows or hot dogs.

Have plenty of flashlights on hand (and check batteries ahead of time).

Never underestimate the power of music to set the tone for your party. Look in the library or a nature store for a tape or CD of nature sounds such as frogs croaking and birds singing, and play it near the tent for atmosphere.

To avoid having insects crash your party, have plenty of bug repellent available and offer it to guests as they arrive. Place citronella coils or torches at the edges of the party area.

Party Activities

Build a campfire:
Have the kids help you gather sticks and wood to help you build a campfire. They get a HUGE kick out of this, feeling like they really accomplished something terrific!

Camping Scavenger Hunt:
Fill a pillowcase with lots of camping goodies (glow sticks, glow necklaces, flashlights, midnight snacks, matching bandannas, water bottles, fans, etc.), and tie it to a tree hidden in the woods. Map out coordinates in your yard, give them each a compass, and as a team have them go on a hunt for "camping loot" that you've hidden. They'll love finding camping goodies that they can enjoy through the night!

Flashlight Tag:
A good, old-fashioned favorite for when it gets dark outside! Played at night, this game mixes the popular games, hide and seek with tag. The person who is "it" waits at the "jail" counting to a high number while everyone else hides. Then, armed with a flashlight, this person searches for the others who may be switching hiding spots. The flashlight must remain on at all times and may not be covered. When "it " spots someone, s/he must use the flashlight to get a close enough look at the person to identify him/her and call out his/her name.

What happens when a person gets caught, gives rise to variations of this exciting game. One variation is to pass the flashlight to the caught person, so s/he becomes "it." Another version is to send each caught person to "jail" to wait until everyone is caught. The first person caught then becomes "it."

Beanbag Relay:
Walk/run/hop with beanbag on head/between knees/between feet.

Spooky Campfire Stories:
Have everyone come prepared with a spooky story to share, or get a book of spooky stories that you can read to them. The KOA website has some fun stories, games, activities, and recipes.

Roasting Marshmallows:
What campout would be complete without roasting marshmallows?

Seeing Stars
Ages: 8 and up

What you need:

Large, clean tin cans (such as coffee cans)
Metal file
Permanent markers
Hammer
Large household nails
Pictures of simple constellations (such as the Big Dipper), and simple shapes (like a house or a five-pointed star)
Flashlight

Before the party:

1. Remove lid from one end of each can and file the edges smooth.

Depending on the ages of guests, you may wish to do steps 2 and 3 yourself before the party. Older kids should be able to follow safety rules for careful use of hammer and nails; an adult should help each child by either holding the can steady or doing the hammering while the child holds the can.

At the party:

2. Mark the location of the stars in a constellation, or draw a simple shape, on the end of each can.
3. Using hammer and a nail, punch a hole through each star's position. For other designs, punch a hole every half-inch and at each point or corner, dot-to-dot style.
4. Turn out the lights and shine a flashlight up through each tin can onto the wall, ceiling or tent top.

Piņatas are always fun, I've never seen a child turn down a chance to take a swing for a sweet treat.

Camp Rations

For delicious food that ties into the party theme, try these suggestions:

Hot dogs (for ages 4 and up): If you have a campfire, let guests roast their own hot dogs on sticks. Be sure that the dogs are allowed to cool before they're eaten.

S'mores: Place a few squares of a Hershey's chocolate bar on a graham cracker. Roast two marshmallows and place on top of the chocolate. Top with another graham cracker and let the chocolate melt a little bit before eating.

Drinks: Any beverage is fun when served from canteens.

Ants on a log: Stuff celery sticks with peanut butter and top with raisins.

Mud: Serve chocolate pudding ("mud") sprinkled with crushed chocolate sandwich cookies ("dirt") and topped with gummy worms.

Trail mix: Mix together food such as candy coated chocolates, peanuts, raisins or dried cranberries, and unsweetened cereal.
