Camping is a great way to teach your son tricks of the outdoor trade.

There's nothing like a couple of guys out on their own roughing it in the wild. Armed with nothing but your wits, a pair of sleeping bags, a tent and an ice chest full of meat and marshmallows, you and your son will abandon civilization for the weekend and depend on each other (and the campsite's bathroom) for survival. Of course, if it gets too cold or you encounter potentially hazardous wildlife -- such as bears or fire ants -- you can always go home, but no matter what happens, the two of you will have plenty of opportunity to talk, laugh and learn from each other.

Just be sure to bring extra s'mores fixings -- they tend to disappear pretty quickly whenever you mix campfires and father-son bonding.
