Throw a Camp Out Party your kids will love.

What better way to celebrate summer than with a Camp Out Party. Kids will love the excitement of camping under the stars with their friends.

A Camping Party is a hit with both boys and girls and can be done relatively inexpensively. If you do not have a tent, ask your family and friends if they have a tent or two to lend you. If you can not find a tent, you can just bring the camp out inside and set up a Blanket Tent.

Start with fun camping themed invitations. You can design your own or purchase downloadable ones. Remind your party guests to bring a sleeping bag and pillow.

Camp Out Party Food

Keep it simple for dinner and serve burgers and hot dogs along with some cute party snacks. Pretzels (twigs), Goldfish crackers, Cheese Puffs (flames), Chocolate pudding (sprinkle with crushed oreo biscuits and call it a cup of dirt), fruit kabobs (arrows) and cupcakes (with red and yellow icing to look like flames) are all great party snack ideas.

Serve Juice (Bug Juice) and Water as your drinks, having plastic or bamboo cups are best and eco-friendly drinking straws, you can write the kids names on the cups so they do not get them confused.

To make the snacks fun, give them some creative names such as Twigs, Flames, Cup of Dirt, match sticks and Bear Poop. Use these awesome printable camping food cards to display the fun names you made for the food.

A great thing about a camping party is you do not need many decorations as your food table and tent will be the focal points. If you are camping inside, add some balloons or even a balloon garland for that extra wow factor. Set up a pretend campfire in the center of the room and have glow sticks handy for when it gets dark.

Camping Party Decorations

You can also make your own DIY lanterns by cleaning and removing the label on glass jars and putting a couple of glow sticks inside. These can be dotted around your ‘campsite’. Or paint a few rocks with glow in the dark paint and set them up in a pathway. Hang up bunting flags between trees, which are easy and simple decorations.

S’mores

And what is a camp out without S’mores? Set up a smores station. If you do not want to make them on a real fire you can use an Indoor electric stainless steel smores maker.

Teenage parties are great for having a backyard camping party and a fire as they are that little bit more responsible around a camp fire. For young kids a pretend fire would be best.
