We may all be stuck inside for the time being, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still pitch a tent and enjoy a night of camping! Follow along with our 6 steps to plan the perfect family Camp from Home Night. PLUS, all at-home campers will have a chance to win $250 (check out our Instagram page for details)!
Step 1: Build your tent or fort
Whether you want pitch an actual tent in your living room (or back yard) or you’d rather build a comfy fort out of pillows and blankets, your shelter is essential for a “camping” getaway!
Step 2: Gather your camping snacks
We suggest s’mores, chips, veggies, and anything else you’d like to snack on! These will definitely come in handy.
Step 3: “Light” a virtual fire
Camping wouldn’t be camping without a fire! If you’re unable to light a real fire outside because you don’t have the equipment or because your area is experiencing a burn ban, “fire” up the TV, iPad, or cut up some construction paper to get the feeling of a cozy fire!
Step 4: Play a camping game
Cards, board games, and more! Keep yourselves occupied and have a family game night with any of your favorites. Need ideas? Check out our indoor games here.
Step 5: Tell a campfire (or ghost) story
Gather round your “fire” and regale your favorite family stories or come up with your own! Just make sure they’re not TOO spooky!
Step 6: Call someone you wish you were camping with
Social distancing has made us all miss our friends and family a little extra! Give your loved ones a call and pretend like you’re all camping together again. We’re counting down the days until we reunite with you all!
