We all know that going on a camping trip is a great way to spend time outdoors and with friends and family. It’s a lot of fun! Camping can be very romantic for couples, and it’s also a great way to have fun with your partner.
If you’re looking for some new ways to have even more fun, here are 5 fun camping games for couples that will make your trip the best yet!
1) Tell Me Five Things
What you’ll need: A pencil and paper
This game is great because it can be played anywhere, and the only thing you need to play this game is your partner. To start, one person asks five questions about their partner. The goal of this game is for the answerer to answer honestly (but still kind), and for the asker to listen closely. This game can be used to get to know your partner better, or just have some fun.
This is a great camping game for couples in the early stages of their relationship, because it can be challenging if you’ve been with your partner for years. Here are some questions to help get you started:
1) If you could trade places with someone for a day, who would you choose and why?
2) What’s your biggest pet peeve about me?
3) If we could go back in time and change something, what would it be and why?
4) What is one of my best qualities?
5) If you could describe me in three words, what would they be?
How to play: One person starts off the game by naming four things that are currently around them, and the other person tries to guess what they are. For example, if you were playing this game with your partner in a car, you could name four things that are around you right now. The first one might be the steering wheel. The second one might be the gearshift.
The next person names four things that are currently around them, and their partner tries to guess what they are. For example, you could say “car, truck, building, grass.”
2) 20 Questions
What you’ll need: An object or a location
This is another great game for couples in the early stages of their relationship. In this game, one person picks an object or a location, and the other person gets 20 questions to try to figure out what it is. The answerer must only answer with yes or no questions. If they ask any open-ended questions, they lose.
To make this game more challenging for advanced couples, you can extend the amount of time that your partner has to guess by five seconds for every question that they get wrong.
Here are some example questions:
Is it smaller than a breadbox?
Is it made of metal?
If you could change one thing about me, what would it be and why?
Does this object have any moving parts?
Is the size of this object larger than a breadbox?
3) Two Truths and a Lie
What you’ll need: A pencil and paper for each person
This is another great camping game that can be played, and all you need to play this game is your partner. To start, each person writes three short sentences about themselves. Two of these sentences should be true, and one should be false. The goal of this game is for the other person to correctly guess which sentence is a lie.
For example, two true sentences would be: “I’m married,” and “I’ve never been to Africa.” A false sentence would be: “I swam with sharks when I was in Hawaii last summer.”
The next person follows the same format, and so on until someone guesses wrong.
4) I Never
This game is usually played in a group, but it can also be played with just two people. One player thinks of an activity or action that they have never done before, and says “I’ve never…” The other players then finish the sentence with a phrase that starts with “I’ve never…” For example, you could say:
“I’ve never been to France.”
The next person says “I’ve never been to France, but I have been to Spain.” The next player would respond by saying “I’ve never been to Spain, but I have been to Italy.”
This game can be played until someone messes up, and then the group starts over.
5) Never Have I Ever
This is a fun drinking game that you can play with your partner.
For this game, players take turns saying things that they have never done before. If another player has done that activity or action, they take a drink.
To make this camping game more challenging, you can play with special rules like “never have I ____ while intoxicated” or “never have I ____ in public.” Those types of rules are not necessary, but they can make the game more interesting for advanced players.
Some additional camping games for couples
Hide and Seek
Hide and seek is a classic camping game that not only couples can play, but families as well. Everyone will have fun hiding behind the trees or even trying to trick others into thinking they’re hiding somewhere else entirely! Camping lends itself to this sort of game because there are often lots of places to hide near your campsite. This also provides a great way to explore the area and do a little more sightseeing.
Knot Tying Contest
For this game, you’ll need a few pieces of rope and some knowledge on how to tie them together. The goal is to make the best knot possible in the least amount of time, or with the fewest number of tries. You can also add a second challenge: who can tie the most knots in one minute?
This is a great way to pass some quiet time and show off your skills.
Tent Pitching Contest
Another great way to spend time outside is pitching tents! But here’s a twist: the faster you can pitch your tent, or even if it takes you longer but looks better when it’s done, the winner is…YOU! This might be a good idea to research in advance and see if there are any tips you can learn. Even if there aren’t, this is a great opportunity to show off your skills, and who knows? Maybe you’ll find some new ones!
This will be especially fun for couples because it’s a good way to bond together. It shows that you’re willing to work as a team and accomplish something big.
Camping is a fun activity for couples! And camping games for couples provide a great way to bond with your significant other! Whether you’re pitching tents or playing games, your time spent outside will be cherished memories that last forever.
