15 Camping Books for Kids

This collection of camping books is apart of our summer learning series where we have activities, crafts, books and boredom busters for kids throughout the summer.

I have so many happy memories of camping as a child. Even above any expensive trips my family would go on, the camping memories tend to stand out the most. Hiking, fishing, s’more, looking at the stars and sleeping in a tent after a long day. How does it get better than that?

If you’re planning a campout this summer, reading these books with your kids is a fun way to get ready and get them more excited. Of course, these are fun books to read even if you aren’t planning a camping trip.
