Our Favourite Camping Activities for this October’s Time for Kids Camp Out

Have you signed up for the Time for Kids Camp Out? Not sure how to keep yourself busy during the long weekend? 

You’re in luck! We’ve put together a list of our favourite camping activities and boredom busters below… 

Did someone say s’mores? 

S’mores are a camping staple. Who doesn’t love roasting marshmallows by the fire? So simple, but so delicious. Learn how to make s’mores in our Camp Out Guidebook. 

Bird watching 

Here in South Australia, we are lucky to have so much native wildlife. We have an abundance of native bird species here in SA, and one of our favourites things to do is to simply take a breather, sit in silence and watch the skies around us. How many birds can we see? How many birds can we hear? Make a game out of it and between your campmates, compare how many birds you see/hear during your camping trip. The winner gets to choose the playlist on the car ride home! 

Stories by the campfire 

Another classic camping activity. Nothing beats scary (or funny) stories by the campfire. Once the sun sets, go around the circle and take turns telling your best stories.  


 Nothing beats yoga in the outback. Get up early and find a quiet spot to do your best downward dog. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to start your day of adventure. 

These are just some of our favourite activities to do while camping. For a full list of boredom busters and challenges, check out our Camp Out Guidebook.
