Family Camping Activities

When you arrive at camp, you'll want to unpack and settle in. You will also need to plan activities for you and your family. Activities families can participate in together include:

  • Backpack
  • Fishing
  • Kayaking
  • Swimming
  • Local Attractions

If you have young children who can't yet walk or teenagers, you'll need to find activities they want to participate in. Young children are happy to play in kindergarten or take a walk with their parents. Teens will want to see the sights, meet other teens, or spend time alone. You'll need to balance your teen by planning activities ahead of time and allowing them time to be alone.


Backpacking with your family is one of the best ways to see nature's beauty together. Depending on the age of your children, you may only want to spend an hour or two in the woods. It will be enough time to see birds, animals, rocks, scenic views and other magical sights that children and adults will enjoy.

Before leaving the camping area, you must pack the following items:

  • Lunch for the trip
  • Extra clothes
  • Water
  • Additional shoes
  • a map
  • Snacks
  • Binoculars
  • Camera
  • sunglasses
  • First aid kit
  • Hats
  • Insect repellent
  • Handheld GPS tracking device
  • Cellphone

If your children have allergies, you will also need to bring their medications.

After packing your bag, you should stop by the camp office and pick up a map of the various trails and roads found in the area. If you are going to a national park, stop at the ranger's office and pick up a map.

Choose trails that are not too long or difficult. Most of the trails on national park property are rated in terms of difficulty. Choose kid-friendly trails that don't have sharp turns, steep inclines, or rough terrain where they can trip and fall. It is important to hold hands when walking down the aisles so that children do not fall.

During your hike, you should talk to your children and share the joy of what they see. If you are going to pass a waterfall or scenic view you should tell them. Young children are usually mesmerized by these natural wonders, while older children will enjoy being outdoors.

During your vacation, you can have as many backpacking adventures as you want, as long as the weather permits. It's a great way to bond with your family, get some exercise, and see some of the most beautiful sights nature has to offer.


Hunting is another activity that families will do together when camping. Many campgrounds are located near streams, lakes or the ocean. Young children and teens will enjoy using the fishing rod to catch fish for dinner.

The equipment you will need on a fishing trip includes:

  • Fishing rod
  • Taste
  • Hang
  • Fishing limits
  • Bucket
  • Network
  • Clothes
  • Shoe

You can fish in saltwater or freshwater, and you will need to know which is which in order to bring the right gear. Also, depending on where you are fishing, you may need a temporary fishing license. When looking for a place to camp, you should find out about hunting requirements. Kids can usually fish for free at most state parks.

Young children who have never fished before will be a little nervous at first and probably won't want to help hook the bait. You have to prepare the fishing rod and show them how to put the line in the water. You will probably have to vomit the first few times until your baby gets used to it.

Fishing is a great way to spend a quiet afternoon or morning with this family. If you or your kids hit something, you can cook fish for dinner.

Canoe Kayak

If you have kids over the age of seven, you might want to sign the family up for a canoe or canoe trip. These are day trips that allow your family to spend time on the water enjoying the scenery and wildlife.

Canoe trips can be arranged in advance so you don't have to spend half a day booking a canoe or booking places on a catamaran.

When you take a boat trip, you should bring the following:

  • Dry clothes
  • Solar cream
  • Hats
  • Sunglasses
  • Insect repellent
  • snacks
  • Waterproof camera
  • plastic bags

Even if you take a boat trip, you probably won't get very wet, so having plastic bags handy for your camera, sunglasses and clothes will help keep them dry just in case. If you're kayaking you're definitely going to get wet, so you should leave most of your stuff in the lockers or in the car until you get back.

Kids enjoy boat trips because it's quiet and there's lots to see, including trees, fish, birds, sunshine, and other canoes and boats.

Most canoe trips last only a few hours. Once you're done, you can return to camp to rest. It's a great way to spend time outdoors and see other types of wildlife.


If your camp has a swimming pool, your children can swim every day if they wish. You can also take them swimming in lakes, streams and oceans. As with other activities, you will need to check on your children often to make sure they are safe.

Items to bring when swimming include:

  • Swimsuit
  • Bath shoes
  • Flotation devices
  • Towels
  • Solar cream

Make sure the campsite swimming pool is supervised. Otherwise, you should always accompany your children when swimming.

If you want to take your kids to the lake, you will need to be mindful of the following:

  • Snakes
  • Mosquitoes
  • Animals
  • Algae
  • Polluted water

Although swimming in the lake seems very natural, it can be dangerous places as there are no lifeguards on duty, animals and other creatures live in the lake and unfortunately many lakes are polluted and should not be used for bathing purposes.

Swimming is a good activity for your family as long as you know it will be safe. You may want to take a first aid course so you can save your child's life before you go on vacation.

Local attractions

Children and teenagers will enjoy a day of sightseeing. You should research places that might interest you and ask your children for their opinion. Although you don't have to spend all day going from place to place, if you pick one or two places to visit and stick around for a while, you'll have a great time.

When researching attractions to visit, you should note the following:

  • Distance from camp
  • Business hours
  • Reservations required
  • Family interest
  • Souvenir shop
  • Lunch spots
  • Special Features

Sightseeing is what many families do when their family's activities run out. You should try to find attractions that will interest your family. Don't spend time in an uninteresting place, it will bore and stress your family.

Try to make reservations in advance so you can plan the day and see the attraction as a family
