Many parents get into camping or convert their tent camping adventures into RV journeys to pass their love of travel and the outdoors along to their kids. Here are a few outdoor gifts for kids to help you share your love of the outdoors and have some fun together on your next trip.

There’s nothing quite like the mystery of discovering lost treasure! With this metal detector, the kids will love scouring the beach or investigating the campground for what others have left behind. The odds are good that you’ll be surprised by what they find, which is why it has an integrated ‘Discrimination Control’ feature to keep them from finding items you might think are better left undiscovered.

- Side table for toys and snacks
- Powder-coated steel frame

While the kids will undoubtedly spend more time on their feet than sitting down, they still deserve their own dedicated chair when they need a little break. For the little director of your camping adventures, this director’s chair is durable, weather-resistant, and easy to store between trips.

Beach camping is so much better with the right gear for exploring the beach and the watery world beyond. Some of our fondest early beach camping memories involve snorkeling to look for aquatic life. But a snorkel set isn’t just useful for beach camping. The odds are good the kids will use it in the pool or the lake as well.
Huffy Green Machine Drift Trike
- Ergonomic high-tensile steel frame
- Redesigned seat with tool-free adjustability
- Dual steering levers with comfortable hand grips
- Injection-molded rear wheels for a longer life
- LED lights accent under the seat and in the rear wheels
Ideal for the smaller kids you’re shopping for, an LED-lighted trike is sure to turn heads in the campground. The design of this “Green Machine” is sure to cause a little campground envy, but the kids will love drifting, spinning, and trying other thrills while exploring their camp setting. The more they ride, the more tired they’ll be when you’re ready to put them to bed and enjoy a little quiet time around the campfire.
Raven 2 Foldable Drone with GPS and Wi-Fi
- Six-axis gyroscope
- Adjustable-angle Wi-Fi camera
- GPS compatible
- Three speeds
Keeping the remote out of the parent’s hands might be tough with this outdoor gift for kids. The Raven 2 Drone has integrated GPS and Wi-Fi capability, dramatically reducing the chances of it getting lost if the kids try to fly above the trees and over to the next campground down the road. It has ‘Return Home’ and ‘Follow Me’ technology, and you can set the maximum distance and height for safe operation. *Check local drone regulations before flying!
Performance Tool LED Headlamp
- Four wide-angle LEDs
- Includes 3 AAA batteries
- Flips down for specific illumination
- Chrome vanadium steel
- Adjustable headband
Nobody really likes moving around the campground at night without a quality headlamp or flashlight. Headlamps are a great outdoor gift for kids because they can keep their hands free to play or break their fall when they get moving a little too fast for their own good. Getting your kids a headlamp also allows you to task them with campsite tasks they wouldn’t be able to do if they had to hold a flashlight in one hand too.
