Best 5 Fun Camping Games to Play Rain or Shine (without any materials)

    Camping is an adventure for the senses. From the first breath of fresh, pine-infused air to a cool afternoon dip in a nearby lake, just being alive in the great outdoors is invigorating.

    But sometimes, lazing around without cell service, Netflix or scheduled activities can get—dare I say it—a little boring. When the weather turns to rain and the sun dips below the horizon, outdoor exploring can be put on hold, leaving you and your fellow campers with little to do. Here are five games to keep you occupied by the light of a campfire or lantern in your tent. All you need is a friend or two and a little imagination.

    1. Two Truths and a Lie


    How well do you really know your fellow campers? This ice-breaker game will reveal who knows you best. The Rules: Player A makes three statements about themselves: two true and one false. The rest of the players then take turns guessing which statement is false. Once everyone guesses, the player reveals the truth. Every player takes a turn.

    Example: I’ve had three surgeries, I’ve been skydiving in Australia, and I’ve been bungee jumping in New Zealand. (The lie: I’ve never been skydiving in Australia.)

    2. Make Me Laugh


    Who had the last laugh doesn’t matter in this game: it’s all about not laughing first.

    The Rules: Player A goes into the middle of the circle and tried to make another player laugh. Player A can do just about anything they want to get a giggle—but no touching or tickling. When another player laughs, they replace Player A in the middle of the circle.

    Example: Crack puns, tell funny stories, sing a song, dance around, etc.
