Camp Songs for kids

"Singing around the Campfire"

Camp songs for kids are great fun, and a free way to unite the family when camping. Camping is a time when you are away from home, away from all (or most) of the "mod cons' and therefore a great opportunity to spend quality time with your kids. Camping songs not only bring the family together, they can create family rituals that your kids can then pass on to their own one day.

Just imagine sitting around a camp fire, taking it in turns of picking your favorite camping song.

Guitar for camping songs

We love it.

And if you're fortunate enough to have a family member who plays a musical instrument, even better, but if not, certainly don't let it deter you.

We've put together a small list of popular camping songs for your family to consider.

Why not check them out and put them to the test on your next camping vacation or weekender.

Encourage everyone in the family to express themselves by trying out new instruments during your singing sessions.

Instruments to offer could be harmonica, drums, maracas, or even spoons, since these are easy for traveling.
