I was super excited to review Camp because we are an outdoorsy, nature loving family so I knew it would be a perfect game for our family. My most favorite thing about Camp is that it is designed to grow with the players. There are level 1 questions which deal mostly with the identification of animals. As a player increases their knowledge about the great outdoors they grow into higher level questions. I also love that the answers require the use of a decoder. It makes it much easier to assist little ones with reading the questions without worrying you will get a glimpse of the answer.
As the company name suggests this is a very educational game. Children will learn all about the great outdoors, animals, nature and more.

I teach a summer camp for children in grades 1st through 5th. I introduced Camp to the kids during our Great Outdoors Theme week. The children absolutely LOVED it! They loved learning all the fun facts about animals and loved the challenge of racing to see who could get to camp first! One child asked ”What do we do once we reach camp” and another child responded ” We roast marshmellows and eat smores of course!´´ . Camp is now the favorite game of our classroom and all the kids can´t wait to have a turn to play it. It was so awesome as a teacher to see the children have so much fun playing this game and learning so much! Another thing that I absolutly loved about this game was that children of all ages can play it. Some of the children could not read some of the bigger words yet and so the older children would help them read the words or help them to sound it out! How awesome to see them working together and helping eachother learn and grow in their reading fluency!! Thank you so much for creating such a fun and educational game that gets children to excited about animals and nature as well as inspires them to read and learn more about nature!!

CAMP is a fabulous new outdoor education board game featuring four unique levels of play in one game.You can play with the grandkids, kids and other adults all at the same time without anyone getting bored or frustrated. It plays much like Trivial Pursuit, but when you draw a question card, the level 1 question might be a picture of a Canada Goose and the question asks what bird it is. But the same level 4 question is how many sub-species of Canada Goose there are. The answer is 7, and only someone pretty knowledgeable about waterfowl would know that. CAMP’s design and production are top quality, rivaling that of Milton Bradley or Parker Brothers. And the average time required to play a game with four players is about twenty minutes. It is being heralded by educators and parents as the best family-oriented and outdoor education game they have ever played. CAMP makes an excellent gift or addition to your family, resort or lodge game library.

We got “Camp” as a gift. The first day we opened it, our kids ended up playing for 3 hours straight! They even got up early the next day so they could play it before school. I love this game because my kids can play at one level, and my husband and I can play at another level at the same time. It covers all generations. Every time I play I learn something new. This is definitely a game that I will be giving as a gift this Christmas!
We heard about the game by reading the article in the Antrim Ct. News. We own 2 hotel rooms at Schuss and get the paper at our home in Southern Michigan. As for the packaging of the game the colors are perfect and the outside of the box is interesting. I like the size as it is hardy and should last for many years. The directions were easy to follow and getting a card with a compass is a challenge and that adds interest. The cards are well thought out to include such a wide variety of ages. The girls keep asking to try the next level. They were easy enough for the 9 year old to read. We played with our two Granddaughters ages 5 & 9 and they had so much fun they didn’t want to go to bed. We all learned some interesting animal facts and they were really wanted to keep playing and playing. They called to tell me they are bringing it over when they come to our home at the lake for Cousins Weekend. We have 5 grandchildren from ages 3 to 9 & they all come to sleep over night. The shipping was done in a timely efficient manner. The entire purchase, shipping and game have been very satisfactory. I am retired but have a degree in Marketing, so nice work!
I love the CAMP game! I can’t wait to play this game with my kids. I purchased three of you games already(for Christmas gifts) from a local store and I need to purchase three more! Thanks so much.
Thank you for sending my game so quickly. My students are really enjoying the outdoors/nature questions. Thank again!

I bought the CAMP game at Scheel ’s Sporting Goods in Fargo. I brought it home to my wife and 2 boys and the first night we played it 8 times. The kids loved it and didn’t want to quit playing!
Our families have enjoyed hours of playing CAMP together. From grandparents to grandchildren! The questions and fun facts spur great conversation. It’s a blast!
As a family-oriented outdoor magazine, we were extremely excited to see CAMP at the Wisconsin Deer Classic in Green Bay. The different skill levels mean that there’s always an opportunity to learn more about the great outdoors – and to become closer as a family. I would highly recommend CAMP to anyone who wants to share their love for the outdoors, especially with the younger generation.
