Bring the joy of the outdoors into your Camping Birthday Themed Party!  This idea makes for a perfect outdoor venue party, giving you a chance to incorporate the sweet elements of nature into your whole celebration.




You can use trees to hang little camping decorations like a flag banner with the special child’s name so everyone can see who the party is all about. Using your camping gear as part of your decor you can set up a pup-tent, layout fishing gear, even using a small canoe or kayak as a fun piece of your look. Decorating your tables can be a breeze, if you use wooden picnic benches you can use either burlap or no cover at all, to showcase a natural style. This is also a fun theme for using picnic baskets for centerpieces, you can fill them with beautiful plant life, or delicious snacks for guests to munch on. Also, using birdhouses and feeders that have been painted bright colors will bring in an adorable touch.

Food Ideas

To feed your guests, you can use fun camping trays to hold the edibles, creating a rustic charm that goes beautifully with the theme.  Create camping favorites like s’mores will make your event feel like a mini-camping trip.  Give a twist to hotdogs, by making pigs in a blanket. Use a tackle box to hold a range of gummy worms for a cute treat. You can even bring the veggies by putting sticks in a dixie cup with some dip. For your celebration cake, you can make a unique cake by covering a sheet cake with green frosting and covering with fun details like a tent, campfire and more.  Make some cupcakes too, frosting with white and then you can top them with any fun detail, like a gummy worm, or a graham cracker and hershey chocolate bar.

Games and Activities

Have some fun with your Camping Birthday Party activities, have a scavenger hunt for a fantastic treat, encouraging all the kids to participate. You can have your guests pan for gold, letting them learn about rocks and minerals as they play, and that creates a fun gift they can keep forever. Another fantastic camping activity would be to let all of the kids decorate a birdhouse or create a foam smores using the kit below or by preparing your own.

Party Bags

There are all sorts of wonderful things you can send your happy party attendees home with that are sure to be remembered. One of my favorites is a s’more in a jar, put graham cracker pieces in the bottom of a mason jar, put some small marshmallows over it, add some chocolate chips and top with a sprinkle of oats to look cute.  Tie the jar with a pretty ribbon and add a personalized tag, finishing off the perfect gift for your guests.

Another fun idea would be to set up a “Take a hike trail mix bar” and get all of the kids to make their own mixtures to take home.  It is a wonderful personalized option for each guest to take home to eat later!
