Camping Activities That Are Anything But Boring!

Find a site that offers camping with activities and banish the boredom on your next trip!

You may have it in your mind that camping is a sedate and relaxing way to spend your time, and this can certainly be true. However, not everyone is content to sit back and relax for their whole break. The good news is that if you are looking for camping activities that are anything but boring, there are Campsites that have activities suitable for the whole family that you can choose to spice up a camping trip and make it fun. Read on to find out what they are.

Canoe Hire

One of the best options for injecting some excitement into a camping trip is to hire canoes and explore the local waterways. Of course, there are various different types of canoes on the market, and some like traditional Kayaks require some extra safety training before use. The reason being that you need to be able to right the canoe if it turns over in the water, something known as an ‘Eskimo Roll.’

 

 

However, there are other kinds like the ones we have on offer at Fourwinds Bed and Breakfast. Indeed, our Mackinaw Canadian canoes (sits up to 3 people) and our Mazzif Fisha sit-on kayaks, (sits one) allow you to swim free if they roll. It is because of this that we choose these types to offer for our canoe hire service and not only are they perfect for exploring the placid 26 miles of Old River Nene that runs adjacent to our campsite, but you can also safely operate them after a short briefing. Just remember to bring a packed lunch to store in the provided cool box and you can make a whole day of canoeing on the Old River Nene!

Coarse Fishing

Fishing is another activity that sits perfectly with camping, and depending on your location you may be able to try sea fishing or coarse fishing (angling for freshwater fish). The great thing about fishing is that it often combines both periods of calm and contemplation, with a burst of activity and excitement, once you have a bite! Not to mention the thrill of the competition when you are engaged in match fishing.

 

Happily, for any keen anglers, there are all kinds of wonderful fishing spots all over the UK, and Cambridge in particular. Although, with the Old River Nene running along the southeastern boundary of our land, (and free of charge to use for our guests) you won’t find a more convenient camping spot if angling for Rudd, Roach, Bream, and Tench is on your agenda!

Archery & Air Rifles

If watery pursuits aren’t your thing, then how about trying your hand at some marksmanship?

We are talking about activities such as archery and air rifles, which can prove a fun challenge for all ages of campers. Indeed, those well versed in video games where their aim is tested all the time are bound to enjoy a chance to see whether their skills measure up in real life.

Of course, when it comes to shooting of any kind, making sure you practice with the correct safety supervision and instruction is crucial. Indeed, that is why we offer both Air Rifles in March Cambridgeshire private group sessions (open to all) as well as archery ‘have a go’ and air rifles ‘have a go’ sessions exclusively for our campsite guests, run by John, our resident expert.
