NOTE: I use the term party loosely. All of these ideas work well whether you just want to have a fun themed family night, a big blowout summer party, or a super small group gathering with just a few friends. The ideas can all be used with whatever level of get together you’re most comfortable with!
Camping Themed Party Food
One of my favorite parts about camping is the food. Unfortunately a lot of actual camping food items (e.g., tinfoil dinners) likely aren’t going to be possible at your camping birthday party. So instead, these are all delicious camping themed party food ideas – so ideas that incorporate the camping themed in a fun way!
By the end, you’re going to be craving s’more camping food guaranteed!

Camping has its own set of activities that are super unique to camping! While many of those activities may not be possible for your celebration, you can still have a ton of fun with these camping games and other things to do! You may not even miss the campfire at all!
Camping Party Decorations & Favors
Now last but not least, let’s talk about how to make it look and feel like a camping birthday party! Plus, a few ideas for some camping party favors for guests to take home at the end of the big “campout.”
