Camping Birthday Party Ideas

This camping party theme is ideal for any age boy or girl! You can really turn it into a sleepover, or you can just “pretend,” it’s a sleepover, with the younger little guys and gals.

Can you imagine how excited the kiddos would be if they were able to wear their pj’s to a birthday party!?

Shopping online the other day, I fell in LOVE with Pottery Barn Kids, and the tents and sleeping bags that they had and I knew a camp-in sleepover HAD to be my next party theme.

Camping Birthday Cake

My creative juices started flowing, and I knew I wanted to create a “fire,” as a cake topper, to carry on with the camping theme.

Various candies and sweets made a yummy, perfect topper.

I used:

and just layered them on top of a pre-made cake! You could easily use any flavor of cake that you want, but I used a white cake with coconut frosting to match the theme of the table!

Camping Party Foods

Carrot Cake Cookies, stuffed with vanilla icing perfectly complimented the sugar rush I was well on my way to creating. But hey, you have to have cookies at a camp-in, right?

Right when the kids were coming down from the thrill of “TENTS! TENTS in the living room!”

S’Mores Trail Mix

I brought out these trail mix s’ mores cups with teddy grahams, chocolate, and marshmallows., and served them in cute little kraft bowls!

And see this deliciousness? The kids had a blast mixing chocolate milk, which I quickly zapped in the microwave and turned in to hot chocolate, perfect telling (and reading) stories around the campfire!

Camping Birthday Party Activity + Party Favors

Every party needs a little hands-on activity, right?

But turning a hands-on activity into a party favor works even better!

Allowing the guests to paint their own birdhouses, and take home, is the perfect all-around party idea!

Camping Party Games & Fun

A room FULL of tents can lead to a crazy amount of fun for the kids.

But so can hours and hours of games like Hide and Seek, and getting cozy in the sleeping bags…. cuddling up around the “fire,” for storytime, is something the kiddos also love!

We get SOOO many compliments on this fun tent from Pottery Barn Kids.

The color, the window, the tent poles… they all go crazy over it!

Talk about hours and hours of entertainment for the kids. (During the party, and stored in the playroom, after the party!)

    Hi! Where can I find the blue and white starred beaded kaleidoscope?

      Hi Sarah! I found that at Pottery Barn a couple of years ago, but I can’t seem to find it online anymore. They must not carry it anymore, I’m sorry!
