Camping Tips: 3 Camping Staycation Ideas

Getting tired of spending all your time indoors?  Check out these easy camping tips for a staycation in your own backyard!  You and the kids will love getting out of the house to enjoy these fun, fresh activities that help to fight the cabin fever.  So, set up your Keystone Avalanche fifth wheel from Plattsburgh RV Store, gather a few supplies that you have in your home, and head out to the back yard with the kids for a weekend of fun!


Outdoor Movie Night

Set up some lawn chairs and hang a large white sheet from your fence, over the side of your RV, or from your roof.  There are tutorials online for building your own projector from a shoebox, black paint, and a magnifying glass.  Set up your projector, build a fire, and wait for sunset!  After it gets dark, you and the family can enjoy s’mores and your favorite movies in the comfort of your backyard.

Spa Day Fun

If you’re ready for a private retreat, look no further than your own RV.  All you need to turn your camper into a spa retreat are a few simple things you can find in your home.  Start by setting the mood in your space with scented candles or an essential oil diffuser.  Connect your smartphone to the surround sound system in your RV and fill your space with soothing sounds.  Fluffy towels, a hot shower, a cleansing face mask, and some time alone is just what you need to recuperate.

Game Night Tournament

This staycation idea is great for kids of all ages.  Gather everyone’s favorite games and head out to the camper for a night of fun!  Pick an short game that is quick-to-play and host a mini tournament with a prize at the end!  The kids will love the change of scenery, and the games will be a great change of pace for the whole family.
