The Best Group Games for Camping

I was chatting with my mom about summer camping trips, and she suggested this blog post.  We play a lot of games on our camping trips, and encourage people who camp with us to bring their favorites.  There is always a lot variety, since we try to stay "unplugged" during our trips.  Below, I'm sharing group game ideas that wash easily, pack down small, and involve the whole body.



Stormy Day Games
We always hope for beautiful, sunny days when we're camping, but we don't always get them.  Great rainy day games are ones that won't blow away in the wind and that can be cleaned if they get muddy/gritty.  Most of these games have some form of tiles.

Best Cards Games
We also play quite a few card games when we go camping.  While these don't always work well at the picnic table, they're great for recreation vehicles and tents.  They don't take up very much room so you can pack a lot of them.

Full Body Games
When the weather is nice, but it's not time for swimming, these action games will get everyone moving and participating.  Many of these are classics, but there are a few old favorites.
