How to Play Camping In

What You'll Need:

  • Tent,
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Charcoal Grill (with adult help)

Step One: Camping out miles from home might seem a little scary for beginners. Camping in can be a great first step. Set up everything you'd normally use for outdoor camping and do your best to pretend you're really in the wild.

Step Two: Cook on the grill. No TV, no electricity. (You can use the bathroom facilities inside; that's the only shortcut you'll take.) This is Camping 101, just to get you ready for the real thing.
