Your kids will love looking around for the items listed in the free camping scavenger hunt as you pitch the tent and unpack the car. Just make sure you have one adult watching the preschoolers and elementary-aged kids so they don’t get lost running around in the wild. Safety first!
Scavenger hunts are a great way for your kids to learn camping-related vocabulary and problem-solving skills. For kids who just want to sit around the camp-fire, a camping scavenger hunt will motivate them to exercise and run from place to place to find the items. If you are going with other families or if you have multiple kids, you can divide the kids up into teams and have them work together for the objects.
Camping Scavenger Hunt for Kids
I incorporated pictures next to the words for each item in the camping scavenger hunt for the early readers. Toddlers and preschoolers can use the illustrations to explore nature. Kindergarteners and elementary school kids can read the words by sounding them out and using the pictures as hints.
Feel free to add more items to the list. You can even use this camping scavenger hunt as a packing list when you are preparing for the trip. Here are the items in this printable:
- Hot chocolate
- Animal tracks
- Sleeping bag
