Beat the Summer Heat with these Campsite Toys & Activities


We all wish for clear skies and plenty of sun when camping. However, be careful of going overboard!

After all, too much sun exposure can make the rest of vacation awfully uncomfortable for youngsters.


Consider taking a break from the sun while still having fun with these outdoor activities:


Worried about getting too much sun at the beach? How about bringing the beach to you! A campsite sandbox is a great outdoor activity kids can enjoy right on-site while being placed in the shade to limit sun exposure. The Little Tikes Big Digger Sandbox allows kids to dig, build, and sculpt a construction site. Or, create your own RV-friendly sandbox. Who knew a bag of sand in a bin and a few toys could entertain for HOURS?!

On scorching days, shade is a must! The Little Tikes Easy Store Picnic Table with Umbrella folds for portability and storage. Keep them entertained and paint rocks, play games, or do campsite crafts.



Relax under a canopy that keeps you sheltered from the sun, wind, and rain. Portable and easy to assemble products like Sport-Brella and Clam Venture Screen Shelter offers quick set up and folds for on-the-go.




For babies, sun tents, domes, and shaded activity seats are ideal when outside. As you’ll see in The Best Baby Gear For Your RV, the Fisher-Price On-the-Go Baby Dome and the Beach Baby Pop-Up are two go-to products that provide a protected area for babies to play or nap outside. The closing canopies shelter them from the sun and also protect them from bugs while collapsing flat for hauling in the RV.



The Summer Pop ‘N Jump may also look familiar! It provides a shaded activity center for growing babies to enjoy while getting fresh air outside. It folds similar to a camp chair for easy storage.

Relax in the shade in a comfortable hammock! It’s lightweight, easy to pack, and is a hit with the whole family.





Don’t forget:

  • 2-Way Y Valve: Connect this to the campground water spigot to instantly create two tap outlets. Odds are, you’ll need a water valve for your fresh water RV hose. Use a 2-way connector to eliminate having to unhook your RV water line in order to fill up squirt guns for the kids! The adjustable flow control makes it easy to regulate water and adjust pressure levels for any water activity.  
  • Expanding Hose: The Flexi Hose’s lightweight and expanding design makes it incredibly RV-friendly. After use, the hose shrinks to conveniently stow in the RV cargo for next time.
  • Water Shoes: Hot summer days can lead to burning hot surfaces– especially if your RV is parked on a concrete site. Make sure the kids have water shoes on to protect them from any dangerously hot surfaces. 
  • Sunscreen: Don’t forget the sunscreen and to reapply accordingly! 
  • After Sun Care: Don’t let a sunburn ruin your vacation. Make sure to have some after sun care on-hand for those scorching summer days! 







RVING IS BEING ready for some fun in the sun!
