Fun Games to Play Around a Camp

We have several games that we carry with us, just in case we need them. If it is rainy or we just want to get rested up and stay in camp. Here is a list of the games we have.

Cribbage, Uno, Phase ten, Skip BO, Jenga, Dominoes, Rummikub, Kismet, Sequence, Mexican train dominoes. Card games of all kinds. There are so many more that you can carry with you.

The Jenga game is a bunch of little pieces of wood that you stack up and try to remove one at a time until one makes the whole mess falls. It can be nerve wrecking. Rummikub is a game that is a cross between rummy and dominoes. Kismet is a dice game. Sequence is a card/ board game.

Now these are just a few of the games available and not all are suited for just two people. So then we ask our nearby campers if they would like to join us. We get to know our new neighbors that way and make new friends. You can pitch horseshoes, or play badminton. These will fit in your truck or camper easily.

These games are good games to have in any camper to pass the time away having fun. Hunters especially will want something to do when they can’t be in the woods hunting. So games are a good thing to have on hand all the time. Most hunters will have a poker deck with them anyway.

Some people will have a TV, and that is good but I prefer cards or games.

Another thing you can do is play a musical instrument. Lots of campers will play the guitar. I play the banjo, it does not play good alone so it makes good sense to get a guitar to play with.
We have met so many new friends out in the camps this way and we remain friends a long time.

Children have a good time playing with adults if it is a game they can understand, so get them involved. They will enjoy camping more if they are amused. They like to win also.

Women if they don’t like cards or games they can do crochet, knitting or cross-stitching. You can carry little projects with you and not get messed up. And, there is always reading a good book. So, with so many things to do there is no reason not to go camping even is bad weather.

Fun Games to Play on Cross Country Trips

RV Camping, Family Camping

When you set out on that first mile with your family on an RV camping trip, you are already committed to heading out into the wilderness and having the time of your life. You have spent months preparing for this trip including booking the slots, buying the food, de-winterizing your RV, maintaining the running condition of it, getting time off work and so much more. The one thing that could put the biggest damper on your trip is… Boredom.

In particular, boredom on the road to your family camping destination can spark irritability, impatience and moreover fighting. With a little creativity and willingness to go along, every potential boring moment on the road can be turned into something fun.

So put away the iPods, and turn off the movie and get ready to have some fun!

1. Roadside Bingo

This game can be particularly fun because of all the uncertainties you may see on the road. Roadside bingo consists of common roadside appearances such as cattle, railroad tracks or a tractor among many other things. These bingo cards can be picked up at many different kinds of stores that offer other fun roadbound games, but it can also be very fun to create your own bingo sheets before leaving on your family camping trip. When you’re playing roadside bingo, it’s important to call out when you see something on your sheet so that everyone else can verify the appearance and mark it off of their card as well. This game is always a good time and can still be on going while playing other games

2. 50 States

50 States is a game where you compete with fellow travelers to see who spots the most geographically unique license plates. As you’re driving down the road on the way to your family RV camping spot, keep a close eye on the cars going by to pay attention to what state the license plate is going by. Just like roadside bingo, players need to call out the state of the license plate that they see so that the other riders can verify the appearance. If multiple riders call out the same license plate, you can integrate other games such as rock paper scissors to battle for the claim of the land! You can play this game for limited periods of time such as between rest stops, the complete first way or you can play for the duration of the entire trip.

3. Mad Libs

Mad libs can bring on hours of entertainment and ridiculous laughter. Mad libs books can be bought at common stores with travel entertainment and are simply short one to two paragraph stories that allows participants to fill in blanks of the stories with their choice of nouns, verbs, adjectives and so on. The person that is filling in the blanks needs to keep the plot of the story a complete secret while asking around for random input for words. You will find yourself rolling with laughter as the most absurd and hilarious stories emerge from the collaborative imaginations of the riders.

4. Road Sign Alphabet

Road Sign Alphabet is a fun game to play on the road especially while passing through bigger cities. The objective of the game is to spot letters starting from the letter “A” and move alphabetically through the alphabet and the first one to cross off all of the letters wins. This game can be altered slightly to change up the rules including stipulations such as; only one letter per sign, only one person can claim the letter and so on. This game is also another that is more long winded and can be extended throughout the duration of the trip and played.

5. I Spy.. With My Little Eye…

It’s one of the simplest ideas and yet we always seem to forget about this one. “I spy with my little eye…something….. GREEN!” It may seem childish to play such a simplistic game, but throwing a few creative edges might make the game a little more energized and full of life. Give yourself a 60 second time limit to spout out as many chances as you get. Play in teams, have your partner guess as many items as you can before time runs out and keep the score then play to a certain number or as long as you want.

With a little openness and creativity, you can foster the environment to create laughter, conversation and most importantly togetherness. Family RV camping trips can sometimes be compromised with a long drive especially for those that are closer together like in a truck pulling a fifth wheel or even a class c conversion van. These traveling games can really help a long family RV camping trip go by faster and definitely more fun.

Fun Games to Play on the Trampoline

Trampolines are not only great for workouts but are also capable of giving you priceless moments of fun through the different games that you could play on it. You can now find trampolines in a number of gyms and fitness centers in the United States. However, not all of these trampolines are used for serious stuff like for example; working out. Some people use it like how it was supposed to be used: for the sheer fun of it.

There are lots of different trampoline games that are made specifically for you to enjoy. These trampoline games serve dual purposes that you would surely benefit from. It doesn’t only give you hours of fun but while at it, it works your body out giving you a great workout experience. It is also a proven fact that jumping on trampolines can help your body detoxify even better and quicker as well as improve the function of your lymphatic system.

It’s an all in one fun and exercise package that is why I don’t know what else would stop you from buying it.
Here is some of the list of trampoline games that you could play with it together with your friends:

1. Jump Rope – it’s like jump rope but you have to do it while bouncing on a trampoline.

2. Follow the leader – a player creates some sort of action while on the trampoline and the goal of the other player is to mimic it exactly. This game is best played with many people.

3. Crack the egg – Basically, the game is played like the normal Crack the Egg game but only on trampolines.

4. Dodge Ball – you need at least six players to be able to play this. There should be other players on the ground and they would try to throw a dodge ball on the people on the trampoline. The people on the trampoline should avoid being hit by the dodge ball.

5. Cold Potato – it’s like regular cold potato game but this one’s done on a trampoline.

There are lots of other games that you could do on the trampoline but basically it’s like regular games except for the fact that it is played on the trampoline. In my opinion, these games are much more fun to do on a trampoline because the fact that you could be able to bounce higher than you usually can do on your bed or the ground is very much fun. It gives you the temporary rush that you get when you feel the awesome weightlessness experience.
