Scavenger Hunts! Need I say more? It's a great tradition to pass down and fun to play while camping. See suggested lists to download and print before you go. You may want to bring either paper lunch bags or grocery bags or baskets for the kids to hold while gathering the goodies.
Suggested rules that work with our kids...
1) Kids must play in teams of two or more - safety first!
2) Invite your camping neighbor kids to play - no one likes to be left out, plus you get to meet your neighbors right away.
3) Set boundaries on how far they can scavenger.
4) It's not a race! I reward all players with yummy gummy bears from Sprouts.
