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

    3. I’m Going on a Camping Trip


    This game of wits shows how closely you can listen and pay attention to signals. It’s absolutely infuriating when you don’t understand, and euphoric once you get it.

    The Rules: Player A starts the game by saying “I’m going on a camping trip, and I’m going to bring…” and listing two items. The items follow a grammatical rule, such as both have double letters, both start and end with the same letters, the items start with the initials of your name, etc.

    Player B then tries to guess the grammatical rule during their turn. Player B says “I’m going on a camping trip, and I’m going to bring…” and lists two items that haven’t been said yet. If they get it right and their two items follow Player A’s rule, Player A tells them that they can come. If not, they’re not invited. Players take turns saying their two items, without revealing the rule when/if they figure it out. The game ends when everyone lists two items correctly and are allowed to come camping.

    Example: I’m going on a camping trip, and I’m going to bring sheets and socks.
