What to do when you’ve reached your campsite

My husband and I love tripping together and always have a great time.  Once we make it to our sight if we have any extra time in the day here are some of the things we like to do:

  • climb trees
  • play cards (strip poker for two is great)
  • get up in the middle of the night and star gaze
  • build a shelter out of things you can gather and then decide if we want to try sleeping in it
  • bring a good book and read to each other
  • build a nice fire and roast marshmallows
  • go on a “wild things hike” (look for all the little bugs and insects you can find and observe them as they go about)
  • feed the birds/squirrels/chipmunks
  • go fishing
  • go swimming
  • bring binoculars and spy on your camping neighbors without getting caught
  • build a sand/dirt/mud castle
  • play hide and seek in the woods

So next time you’re going on a trip be creative once you reach your campsite and try some of my ideas!
