When you and your family decide to take a camping trip, many fun and exciting activities can be pursued. When deciding on what activities that you and your family will enjoy on your camping trip, you should ensure that you are creative and open to the creativity of others. The wild is a place to explore, enjoy, and share in the delight of each otherís company. Here, you will find some of the many popular camping activities that you can enjoy on your trip.

 

While on a camping trip, one of the most popular camping activities that you can enjoy is creating songs and singing them together. Many families simply enjoy singing traditional camping songs. Many families will work together to create new and interesting instruments out of the items that surround them. You can make guitars and drums out of sticks and twigs that are lying around on the ground. Many people may choose to make a set of drums out of some nearby rocks. You may decide to allow each member of the family to perform a song that they like. Each member can take a turn singing and performing a song that they enjoy. One member of the family may be designated as a judge and the winner can get a special reward for their performance. Dance should be encouraged during these performances to ensure that the family is getting the proper amount of exercise.

One of the most popular camping activities is fishing and swimming. Usually, when a family chooses a camping site, they select a location where there is a body of water nearby. Many will select to participate in a wide array of water sports, such as boating and water skiing. Others may simply choose to have a variety of swimming contests. Many may select to make a day out of fishing and consuming their fish at the end of the day. Having a body of water close to your campsite will provide hours of entertainment and joy to all members of the family.

One of the last popular activities that many people participate in when it comes to camping trips is creating a family scrapbook. There are many ways that a family may choose to do this, but one of the best ways is to purchase at least two disposable cameras for each person in the family Ė even the youngest family members. Each family member should be informed that they are to take a variety of pictures that represent the events of the camping trip. It is important to be able to see each personís point of view on the trip, not just the adults. Once you return from the trip, you can take your cameras to a one-hour photo shop and have each set of film developed. When you are waiting for the film to process, the family can select and purchase a photo album that will hold the pictures. Later, when everything is unpacked and settled, you may all sit down together and create a photo scrapbook of your camping trip.
