Camping Selfie + Emoji Photo Scavenger Hunt [Free Printable PDFs]

Whether it’s summer camp, the family camp trip, or just something fun to do as a family, these camping selfie and emoji scavenger hunts are sure to change up the “traditional” camping scavenger hunt!

We all know kids get to a certain age where cutesty things aren’t cool, so I thought I’d make a “cooler” scavenger hunt to try out at your next campground!

Don’t forget to check out my full guide that includes 27 Camping Activities Your Teen WANTS to Do if you’re trying to brainstorm things to do together this summer!

Camping Selfies Photo Scavenger Hunt (Perfect for Teens or Summer Camp!)

By this time, you probably know technology has advanced since we were kids, and that now almost every teen has a phone. Alot of people like to make a “no tech” rule or something, but I do think it’s possible to merge the two in a fun way!

This selfie challenge is just that – you can even further modify it by having it be a competition such as silliest faces, most beautiful shots, etc.

Emojis Outdoors and Emojis Camping Scavenger Hunt!

Emojis are everywhere… and they’re pretty darn cute! It’s become a way of adding emotion to just the written word, and again, I’m all about embracing technology and changing times!

This camp scavenger hunt can be used a couple of ways

  • Photo version – For each category, challenge the kids to take a picture that, to them, represents the emoji shown! A short description to remember it later can be written on the actual scavenger hunt paper
  • Selfie version – Take a selfie that matches the mood of each emoji. The faces they make are almost meme worthy alot of times, especially if they coordinate it with a super funny thing that happened to them at camp. IE, the “EW” emoji could be a selfie in front of the backed up black water tank LOL
  • No phone version – Don’t worry, phones aren’t NEEDED for this! Just writing in what made them feel like the emoji is fun too! There is a blank and lined version of the scavenger hunt =)
