Camping is a great way for friends to joke around and doesn't require fancy party supplies or girly party games.

How to Have a Camping Party

Ask your teen to call or email a few good friends and let them know you're camping outside for his birthday. In case it rains, you might want to pick a rain date for your party. Everyone can camp in the backyard or at a nearby camping ground. Here are some suggested camping supplies your guests may need:

  • Sleeping bags and pillows
  • A tent
  • A small grill and frozen hotdogs, hamburgers or chicken
  • A cooler with ice and drinks
  • Flashlights
  • Toilet Paper
  • Matches
  • A pocket knife
  • Sport equipment such as a football or baseball and glove
  • Fishing equipment (if you plan to fish)
  • A change of clothes

Camping Party Game and Activity Ideas

Aside from sitting back and enjoying the wilderness (or the backyard) here are some ways to keep your guests entertained at a camping party.
  • Capture the Flag: Form two teams and see who can capture the other team's flag first. This game can also be played at night with flashlights.
  • Ghost Stories: Gather around the campfire and tell ghost stories with your friends. Each person can take a turn making up their own story or you make up one story together. This is a good game to play while roasting marshmallows or hotdogs.
  • Horseshoes: Form teams and see who can score the most points.
  • Outdoor sports: Depending on the location of your camping grounds you may be able to go fishing, canoeing or hike.
  • Can Toss: Set up a row of empty soda cans and see who can knock the most down by throwing pebbles.
  • Tent pitch: Divide into even teams and see who can pitch their tent the fastest!
  • Make S'mores: Roast a marshmallow over a campfire and then put it between two graham crackers with a chocolate bar. Yum!
