Camping Word Search


Baltimore Area Council

Find the CAPITALIZED words from the story in the puzzle.

It’s fun to go camping in the summertime. We Pack our CAR and drive to our favorite campsite near a LAKE. FIRST we pitch our TENT and gather WOOD. Someone must get drinking WATER in a PAIL

When our camp is ready, we go for a SWIM or launch our BOAT and try to catch some FISH for dinner. We HIKE in the woods and find a good climbing TREE.

We build a blazing CAMPFIRE and cook dinner in a POT. For dessert there are MARSH MALLOWS to roast. When the sun goes down we light our LANTERN and sit around the warm fire and SING. The MOON and STARS always seem brighter when we’re far from town.

Soon it is time for each of us to curl up in a SLEEPING BAG and let the gentle night sounds lull us to sleep.

Touch and Tell

Baltimore Area Council

Number 10 brown paper bags from one to ten. Put a familiar article in each bag (preferably an article related to campfires, nature or outdoors) and staple the bag shut. Each boy is given a pencil and paper on which he lists numbers one through ten. He tries to guess what is in each bag by feeling through the paper, and records on his paper his guess. Boy with greatest number of correct answers is winner.

Find the Words

Baltimore Area Council

The Leader gives each Cub Scout a pencil and piece of paper and asks him to write as many smaller words as he can find in the word “Camp Fire Traditions”. Score one point for each word.
