10 Things Your Kids Can Learn While Camping

In our family we like to say that learning is not just for school time, but rather learning is a lifestyle. My husband and I take advantage of opportunities to teach our children as we go about our daily lives.
"You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up."
One of our favorite family activities is camping. I posted about our most recent camping trip at Ramblin' Roads... but for this post I thought it would be neat to share a few of the educational benefits we have discovered while camping:
  1. Nature Studies
  2. Survival Skills
  3. Primitive Cooking
  4. Physical Education (hiking, biking, pumping and carrying water...)
  5. Exploration and Discovery
  6. Socialization (They always meet any other kids whose families are camping at the same time!)
  7. Reading (A very relaxing way to spend a lazy afternoon at the campground, when electronics aren't an option!)
  8. Photography
  9. Astronomy
  10. Meteorology
And that's not mention the great family relationships we are building in the process!

What does your family like to do for fun and education?
