How to Stay Entertained On A Wet Camping Trip

When you set out on your camping adventure the hopes are that it will be a great success, you’ll have fabulous weather, enjoy some beautiful scenery, get away from the hustle and bustle, and truly relax. And while that may be the case the majority of your camping trip, sometimes the weather is not in our favor. So what happens if you’re suddenly stuck with a wet few hours, or even worse, a whole day of rain? What can you do to stay entertained? We’ve got some great suggestions for you that will also help you to pack in a smart way.

Time To Bring Out The Board Games And Deck Of Cards

One great way to pass the time and keep yourself entertained is to break out the board game or deck of cards once the rain starts. Everyone can set up inside the tent to stay dry, and you can literally spend hours on these styles of games.

Some classic board games to pack can include Scrabble, Monopoly, Connect Four, The Game of Life, and Cranium.

Online Gaming Can Keep You Entertained

If you’ve got your smartphone with you, and you have data, then you can stay entertained with a little online gaming. Whether you just have a little time to spare, or you’ve got a whole day stuck in your tent while you wait for the rain to taper off, this can be the perfect activity. You can visit an online casino Canada or play your favorite app game. 

Word Searches And Crossword Puzzles Keep The Brain Busy

You can also toss a few word search and crossword puzzle books in with your camping gear, as these will keep your brain busy and occupied while the rain continues.

If you’re camping with kids, be sure to pack some of these puzzles that are appropriate for their age group and aren’t too difficult. Typically, the kid versions have larger print, easier words, and fewer words.

Catch Up On All Your Reading

A day stuck in your tent is also the perfect opportunity to catch up on your reading. It’s quiet, peaceful, and the sound of the rain can be quite soothing and relaxing. All of this makes for the perfect environment for reading. 

Pack Your Rain Gear And Embrace The Weather

Then there is the fact that a little rain doesn’t have to mean the end of a good time.

If you pack the appropriate rain gear then there is no reason you can’t get out there, explore, do a little light hiking, and just take in the sounds of nature.

This is especially true if camping during the summer months, as that rain may actually feel cooling and refreshing.

Ensuring Your Camping Trip Is A Success

While it would be great if you could get a weather guarantee for your camping trip the fact is that you just never know what you’re going to end up with.

Being prepared for all types of weather means you’re ensuring that your camping trip will be a success.
