40 Camping Learning Activities

As a former classroom teacher, I have been putting together unit studies for years! I love finding hands-on activities that families can do with minimal preparation and NO worksheets. Children learn best through discovery and play, and these camping activities will help you all have fun learning together!

Best of all, our Camping Family Activity Guide isn’t just something you download and forget about!

The camping activities are part of our membership program, The Play School Club.

By joining The Play School Club community, you get access to:

  • our seasonal activity guides, filled with hands-on learning ideas for your toddlers, preschoolers, and primary grade students.
  • a trained teacher who can walk you through homework battles or attention struggles. A teacher who loves helping parents prepare their kiddos for Kindergarten in a fun way!
  • other moms, who can understand, encourage, and support you through the hardest moments of parenting.

You also get a chance to nourish your own growth, through trainings, book club discussions and mini-classes about flexible family schedules, age-appropriate learning, and more.
