Finding tabletop RPGs that capture the vibe of camping and scouts
I started seeing a lot of cool camping and scouts themed tabletop RPGs pop up and have loved trying them out with my kid. They’ve gotten him excited to try scouts once he’s old enough, and they’ve been a great throwback to camping trips I went on growing up and my time in scouts. So, this list consists of tabletop RPGs that have that outdoorsy cozy camp feel for you to use at home, on a camping trip, at a scout meet, or anywhere!
I’m hoping this help parents, teachers, caregivers, and anyone wanting to share some adventures focused on camping and scouting with their kids, but, with that in mind, I also know that everyone is different. I did my best to sort through the games here so you can have an easier time reviewing and picking some options that will work for your particular players without having to search around, but please do make sure to check the games yourself to see how they will fit you and your particular players’ needs.
Suggestions for adding to this scout and camping themed tabletop RPGs list
If you have a recommendation for a game to add, please let me know through the TTRPGkids contact form so I can consider adding it to this list or my big game list! I’ll be adding to this list as I come across more games, so stay tuned! For recommendations, I’m looking for games that are set at a campground, involve scouts, or give off a general camping/scouting vibe that are geared at kids or are intended for all-ages as they are currently published.
