As always it feels like the Summer is soaring by at the speed of lightning. Funny how that always happens, eh?
One of my families favourite things to do in the Summer is to either head to the cottage or camping. We are a very outdoorsy bunch, and have such an appreciation for Mother Nature.
Camping may not be all that glamorous, but it can be quite fun. It is a time to be offline and just enjoying living the the moment, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday.
If you are heading camping as a family, there a many family-friendly, fun camping activities that you can participate in that are sure to have you passing the time and ensuring that your camping excursion is one that is far from dull.
Here are a list of our top 5 favourite camping activities:
Explore Nature. A huge part of going camping is that you get to be up close and personal with nature. Consider going on a hike or nature scavenger hunt. You could even try geocaching. Bring some binoculars and enjoy checking out the various wildlife and birds from afar. Just remember to keep your distance and be respectable of their space.
Relax. Curl up in a camping chair or hammock with a great read. Enjoy the quiet and be sure to take in the sounds of the nature. There is nothing more peaceful than listening to waves crash ashore while the leaves rustle in the breeze and the birds sing.
Play Games. Tag, hide-and-seek, and red rover are some of our personal faves.
Enjoy water activities. Warranting you are camping near a body of water, pack your bathing suit and maybe some fishing gear. If you have access to a boat, you could even go tubing or water skiing. Skip rocks. Water activities could also involve a water balloon fight.
Have a campfire. Camp fires are the part I look forward to the most. A chance to wind down with friends and family, stargaze, tell scary stories, and roast marshmallows. Be sure to bring your Kandoo Kids Flushable Wipes for easy clean-up after enjoying those ‘Smores. We all know what a sticky mess they can create.
Another item you will often find close by when we head camping is our Boogie Wipes. The outdoors while beautiful, always brings out the sniffle for some of us that are allergy prone, but we manage.
So if you are heading camping this Summer, have fun, enjoy some participating in some of our favourite activities, but most of all relax and just enjoy all that nature has to offer!
