Camping activities for non-athletic kids

Category: News, Date: 20 April 2022

Sometimes we all just want to relax on our camping trips; and well… With kids, sometimes it’s a little difficult.

And sometimes, it isn’t as easy as telling them to go out and kick a ball.

In an attempt to give you a hand, we’ve listed some of the best ways to keep the kiddos pre-occupied so you can enjoy your trip to the fullest.

Go on a kid friendly scavenger hunt

Get your kids thinking and out in nature and set up a fun scavenger hunt for them.

Set up some cheap items around the campsite that if don’t get found, won’t put a damper on the budget.

Study plants and bugs

Before heading off on your trip, invest in a botany / insect book for your kids to study.

They can walk around the campsite and identify all different types of plants and bugs which they will love.


If you’re camping in a coastal spot, head down to your local general store and pick up a cheap snorkel.

Normally no more than $10, this is a great way to keep the kids entertainment. Through shallow reefs, peeking into rockpools or simply just swimming around- it’ll keep the kids occupied for hours.

Geocaching / Treasure hunt

Geocaching is a free app that allows people to put down items or activities and put in it’s exact coordinates for people to find.

If there’s nothing around you, why not leave a little treasure and add it to the map so someone else may find it later?

Not only is it unique, but it’ll definitely bring a thrill for the kids (and maybe for the parents too!).
