Camping Games Can Be Full Of Tips!
Did you ever pick up a camp tip and wonder to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
Every camper wants to think they can “MacGyver” their way out of a bind after forgetting to pack something for a camp weekend.
We found ourselves sharing crazy camping tips around late-night campfires and knew we could not be alone.
That is when we created the Camping For Foodies® Super Hero Camper Game.
It’s clean, fun, low-tech and creates lots of laughter and memories.
We had so much fun with it that we wanted to share it with our fellow camping enthusiasts.
But, we didn’t stop there … Share your story with us and if we publish it on CampingForFoodies.com we’ll send you one of our cool camping products as a gift!
This is one of those great campfire games for large groups that consists of people who don’t know each other well … it makes a fun ice-breaker game.
