Camping with Kids – The Alphabet Game

There are many variations to this, choose the best one for all participants. As suggested by the name the goal is to make your way from A to Z. You can play utilizing signs and billboards or another variation uses license plates.

If using signs you need to decide if the letter you are searching for must be the first letter in a word or can be found any where in the word. For example if you are looking for the letter “E” and it must be the first letter you should look for “exit” or “Exxon”. My family used to use the first letter of the word except for certain letters such as “Q”. If you are playing with younger children or are in an area where there are not as many signs you may want to allow the letter to be any where in the word. Also once the word on the sign is used no one else can use it. If the word is on a different sign it can be used again or someone can use a different word on the same sign but they can’t use the exact sign and word combination that has already been called.

The Camper's Guide to California!

Get the Guide

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!


Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
