Camping Games for Kids


Campsite Bingo

Kids can play this campsite bingo game with friends to see who can win B-4 everyone else.

What You'll Need:

  • Paper
  • Pencil or pen
  • Edible game pieces (like popcorn, animal crackers, or red-hot candies)

How to Play Campsite Bingo:

Step 1: Take a blank piece of paper and write B-I-N-G-O in big letters all the way across it. Have kids pair up with partners. (The buddy system is especially important in the wilderness.)

Step 2: Making sure they stay close enough to camp to hear each other, have kids search for something that begins with a "B." It can be a bug, a piece of birch, a baseball you packed, or anything else that starts with "B."

Step 3: Do the same with the rest of the letters in the word "BINGO," using the game pieces on the paper to help kids keep track of what they've found. The first team to find all five objects wins the game.
