Camping Scavenger Hunt Printable:

As a children’s program coordinator, I used scavenger hunts all the time in my activity planning.  They can be useful in pairing up older children with younger children to work on together or using as an individual activity. You can easily print out this nature scavenger hunt for the kids.  The checklist is meant for older, school aged kids but is great for having older siblings work with younger ones on finding each item!

More scavenger hunt ideas:

  • shells
  • insects
  • worms
  • moss
  • grass
  • nuts
  • seeds
  • animals
  • tracks

Have the kids simply find each item and check it off of the list or collect items in a container to bring inside and examine more closely.  I love these plastic storage containers (affiliate link) for our nature collections but empty egg cartons work great too!

Look for:

  • different colours
  • soft or hard textures
  • shapes
  • variety of sizes
  • number of birds or animals
  • signs of humans

The ideas are almost endless!  We often use these scavenger hunts when we’re out camping.  It’s the perfect boredom buster activity when out in the woods.  The boys bring their discoveries back to camp and we explore and discuss what they found.  Sometimes we make it a competition to see who can find all of the items the quickest.  Complete with prizes!
