Camping with teenagers can either be super enjoyable or feel like you’re pulling teeth anytime you try to get them to do something.

Don’t worry, I’ve got ‘ya covered! Here are 27 fun teenage camping activities and camp games. I’m sure you’ll find AT LEAST one they love!

If the campground you’re headed to doesn’t have much riding space, you can make the most out of it by whipping up some easy “jumps”, obstacle courses, or balance beams!

Until you know how cool rocks are, they all look the same. But once your kids can identify a few rocks (pick up a local geology identification guide/book), they will be way more interested in the nature around them!
