Glowing camping activities


Have you been looking for something a little more unique than a campfire? Your group may benefit from glowing games. You will be able to get up and move even in the dark with these games.

The Flashlight Tag

Played at night and combining the fun of tag and hide-and-seek, this game will delight people of all ages. This game can be played in a variety of ways, but the basic idea is to remain hidden and avoid being caught by the flashlight.

Hunt for glowing eggs

Easter is not the only time of year to have an egg hunt. There is something fun about a glowing egg hunt regardless of the time of year.

A number of plastic eggs are required in order to play this game. Each egg should be prepared by inserting an activated mini glow stick. Before allowing all players to hunt for the eggs, one person should hide the eggs.

Repeat the game as many times as necessary until everyone has been exhausted or the glow sticks have stopped glowing.

Bowling with a glow in the dark

Using glow sticks for glow bowling is another great activity. There is some planning and preparation involved in this activity, but it is well worth the effort due to the amount of fun you can have.

Playing this game requires six empty 2-liter soda bottles, six glow sticks, and a ball. Set up the bottles similarly to a triangle of bowling pins (without the back row) when you are ready to play. Place an activated glow stick in each bottle. The ball is rolled toward the pins by each player, and they are encouraged to knock down as many as they can.

The Shadow Puppets

It is also possible to put on a show using any glow that you are able to come up with. Shadow puppets are a lot of fun and do not require a great deal of preparation or set up. An RV or tent can be used as a backdrop for making puppets using a flashlight. Explore the possibilities of creating animals by using different shapes, or make more intricate puppets by using paper cutouts. The entertainment value of this activity might surprise you.

The stargazing experience

The night sky is one of the most enjoyable aspects of heading out of the city and into nature. In the wilderness, the stars and moon appear much brighter due to a lack of light pollution, making stargazing particularly enjoyable.

Take a telescope along to observe the stars up close, or grab a constellation book and try to identify a few. The beauty of our universe will leave you speechless, no matter what you do.
