    Don't do these on a camping trip, that's for sure. Then it'll be just like being at home, but more uncomfortable.

    Assuming you're "real camping" and not driving up to a lame camp lot with washrooms and picnic benches and people everywhere...go hiking and explore the area around. Rent a canoe if you're near water (hopefully). But more important is to go with awesome people since it's more about them than anything...card games, drinking, guitars, cooking stuff on fires, etc. I can't say that I'd ever go camping with my family for that reason, lol.

    If you're going "lame camp lot" camping, you'll have to be creative. Maybe bring back the laptop there, at least then you won't be bored out of your skull (I hate those places).

    Well, I'm going with my adult siblings. Do you guys know any sneeky ways of getting them to play a week long "epic RPG adventure" where we have fake sword fights and construct a story about defeating the big bad guy?

    I’m not fond of fishing (Never liked the taste of fish, it makes me physically ill) and besides, there are no lakes anywhere near my camp site.

    The fort idea is pretty cool, although I’d have to bring my own materials (there’s a strict “no fucking with the trees and landscape” policy that will get me ticketed if I chop up lumber [already fallen trees] or tie weighted ropes to trees or dig holes). I could make a pillow fort or bring cardboard boxes.

    I’m definitely going hiking.

    I was actually thinking of Legend Of Zelda, but I didn't say it. I'm impressed that you were able to figure out what I was eluding to. How did you know?
    ---
    So I should collect LoZ[Legend of Zelda] type items (red lantern, shields, swords, masks, hand drawn paper maps, etc.) before my camping trip?

    Should there be a prize at the end of each adventure? Should part of the adventure include playing a D&D game that tells the story of what we're doing and why we're about to go out on a quest?

    Sorry, I misread that as Ganindorf who was the main villan in Legend of Zelda.

    1. For Pete's sake, don't bring a laptop. Or an iPod or anything of the sort.

    2. Go hiking at night without a flashlight (carry one, in case you get lost, but don't use it in a non-emergency.) Your eyes will adjust and it's a great way to feel at home in the woods.

    3. Use the coals of your campfire to cook. Wrap everything you want (meat, potatoes, veggies, anything) up all together in aluminum foil and bury it in the coals for 20 minutes.

    4. Sit or lay down and just watch a small patch of nature for a while. Birds, insects, wind, small animals. It can be fascinating like an aquarium is.

    5. If you have dead trees and it's allowed, chop down a few small trees or at least chop your own firewood from fallen trees. It's very cathartic and gives you a nice sense of accomplishment.

    6. Definitely tell jokes and stories around the campfire (and toast marshmallows!)

    The lap top is to keep my siblings sain. I can go on a camping trip without a computer and enjoy myslef. My sister and my two brothers can't. Within 2 days, they'd take the key's to the car, pack up, leave for town, and spend the entire time in a hotel room.

    Good idea, I hadn't thought of this one. This would probobly play right into the Week-long-Legend-of-Zelda type game I was thinking about doing. I could set up a dimly lit "evil castle" at an empty campsite and lead my siblings all around until we found it.

    Eficenct use of coals. I'm so used to cooking food over those grimy metal racks that I might try the tinfoil idea just for a change of method.

    I usually do this, but you're the first to sugest it.

    There's a strict policy where I'm not alowed to mess with even the trees that have fallen.

    Okay, I'd like to get your opinion/ advice on these:

    Buy cheep treasure chests ($5 each) and place them all around the campground. Have clue hunts or scavenger hunts to find them. The chests can be filled with chocolate coins, clues to the next chest, or "key items" that (if this was a video game) would trigger the next story event.

    Practice survival skills such as living out a backpack and a tent that I can carry over my shoulder.

    Psychoanalyze each other (the "you are walking in a forest" one is popular)

    Playing board games like candy land, play question games like "20 questions," make impromptu poetry or songs where the lyrics involve a topic that one of us suggest (example: make up a song about being eaten by a werewolf)

    Flashlight tag (they probably won't go for it)

    Madlibs (for the car or when we're not up to walking around the mountain)
