RVing as a family is all about having fun and bonding in the great outdoors. In addition to hiking and exploring, one of the best ways to get everyone excited about the trip is to play some camping games together! Whether you’re camping with young children, teens or adults, this list of clever camping games will keep your group endlessly entertained. All of them are family-friendly, and many of them can be adjusted for levels of difficulty. You can find them all at your local General RV Supercenter.
1. Camp: The Board Game is a fun and educational game where both children and adults can play and learn fun facts about the great outdoors.
For two to eight players, Camp includes 200 game cards and is designed to grow with the player, starting with level one questions and progressing to higher-level questions. Perfect for a rainy day, camping trip, or just some time outside, Camp: The Board Game educates everyone playing in an entertaining and interesting game. “A vibrant earth tone color palette, full-color photos, interesting playing characters and a cute Camp card decoder” were incorporated to make this family game appealing to both children and adults.
2. Welcome to the wild! 10 Essentials is a fun, fast-paced card game that is based on the experience of back-country hiking.
While playing you will learn the 10 basic essentials you need to survive in the wild and the dangers they negate. Have fun playing danger cards on opponents, while protecting yourself with essential item cards and accumulating miles, scenic and wildlife cards.
Dangers lurk throughout this card game! You have the ability to place dangers on your opponents and stagnate their progress. They include things like Hypothermia, Dehydration and Dark. You can negate danger placed by opponents with the Essential Item needed. Water protects you from Dehydration. You need a Shelter if someone places a storm on you. Be prepared for the dangers!
This simple game will fuel friendly competition and learning in families, hiking friends and scouts. Enjoy the trail! Remember – It’s best to know before you GO!
3. Toasted or Roasted is an offensive/defensive camping game in which players try to be the first to start their campfire and toast three marshmallows.
But watch out for Roasty because he will burn the marshmallows to a crisp!
To get your fire lit, you must collect a fire starter card, which you can then lay on your firewood disk to start the flames flickering. The next challenge will be securing a marshmallow for your roasting stick. Take turns flipping cards until you get a raw marshmallow. Finally, be on the lookout for a toasted card to add to your stack. You need it to complete one of the three toasted marshmallows you need to make. But be careful because if your opponents turn over a rain, wind or roasted card, they can put out your fire or burn your marshmallow and you’ll have to begin again!
Toasted or Roasted comes packaged in a unique, resealable and waterproof “take-along” bag. This ensures years of wonderful RV travel memories and fun on the go.
4. An unbelievably entertaining camping game for family and friends, Freestyle Chicken Disk Battle is packed with clucking-good fun.

This game is perfect for enjoying at the campsite with old or new friends! The target bases can be weighted with water or sand for added stability. And the chickens squeak!
