Play a classic game of tag
We all played this game as a kid and not only was it thoroughly entertaining it was a great workout. You can still play this game as a group of adults and have a hilarious time. It is best played on a plain field with lots of grass to hop, duck and run.
a scavenger hunt is a great outdoor activity that can bring out the detective in you. You can enjoy this activity with your friends or family in the great outdoors. Simply begin creating lists of ambiguous descriptions of items. After that, provide all the participants with a copy of the list. Then you can all go exploring and try to discover the items on the list. You can do this in open fields, bushy areas or even on the beach.
Engage in some geocaching
This is essentially a more technologically advanced version of the scavenger hunt. To go geocaching, you start by downloading a dedicated application of the same name. After that you can use it to register on their website and start participating.
There are caches of items that are distributed all over the world. They are all logged by use of Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates. Each cache has some clues that give hints to its location that were written by the person who created it. It also has a small piece of paper where finders can write their name and details to prove they found it.
A great feature of the geocaching app is that you can keep records of the caches that you find. This activity is superb for those that love to explore the outdoors. It can keep you occupied all weekend and have you exploring the world around you alongside other explorers.
The outdoors are great for some adventures if you love spending time in nature. These are some of the activities that you can try out over a weekend. Invite friends and family along, it is a great way to hang out and spend some time together. It can also have you feeling like a kid again.
