Outdoors activities, like overnight camping, are one of the things children really look forward to at camp. Getting together with friends, hiking into the woods, setting up a campsite, having dinner around a campfire, making s’mores, and sleeping in a tent are all so much fun. Just being outdoors like this is so different that ordinary life, children really enjoy it. Gosh, just playing with your flashlight in the tent can be a thrill, and think of the shadow puppets you can make!
All of this in addition to the benefits of genuine outdoor experience— no wonder children like it.
