Egg-citing activities to do on an Easter family camping trip

If you're looking for some fun activities to do on an Easter family camping trip, we've got you covered. Here are a few of our favourite ideas:

1. Easter egg hunt: Hide chocolate eggs or small toys around your campsite for the kids (and adults!) to find. Make sure to keep track of every hidden egg – these could be dangerous for dogs if left behind! If you're feeling extra creative, you can even dye some eggs at your campspace.

2. Campfire cooking: Make some delicious s'mores or smoky hot dogs over the campfire for a classic camping treat. Make sure your campspace is equipped to create a campfire safely by booking a campspace with a campfire.

3. Hiking and nature walks: Take advantage of the beautiful spring weather and go for a hike or nature walk. Keep your eyes peeled for signs of spring like blooming flowers and chirping birds. Take along a bird, animal or plant identification guide and see how many different species you can spot!

4. Stargazing: After the sun goes down, lay back and enjoy the clear night sky. See how many constellations you can spot!
