Glamping, or glamorous camping, has become quite the trend in recent years. This alternative is perfect for brides who love the great outdoors but don’t want to give up their comforts. Glamping could involve staying in luxuriously equipped safari-style tents, cozy cabins, or unique yurts.
This means you can easily access mother nature while enjoying amenities like comfortable beds, stylish decor, and even private bathrooms. Use this glamorous setting for a professional photoshoot to capture lasting memories.
The fun doesn’t have to end when the sun sets. Set up a game night around the campfire. Traditional camping games like flashlight tag can be mixed with bachelorette favorites like the newlywed game or dare cards. This is a fun activity that keeps the party going into the night.

A good hike offers the chance to admire stunning views and plenty of opportunities for group photos. Choose a trail that matches the group’s fitness level and enjoy the beauty that mother nature has to offer.
This is one of our favorite camping bachelorette party ideas. A scavenger hunt is a fun way to get everyone to explore the campsite or nearby national park. Provide a list of items or landmarks to find, and set everyone off in teams.
The scavenger hunt could include finding certain flowers, identifying bird calls, or even light-hearted items like finding a four-leaf clover. This could easily become one of the bride’s favorite bachelorette party activities.
Nothing compares to food cooked over an open fire. An outdoor cooking class could include a variety of traditional camping dishes like hot dogs and baked beans, to more gourmet options like skewered prawns or even a sour cream-loaded baked potato.
This hands-on cooking experience won’t just provide a delicious meal but will also provide a fun, shared experience for everyone.
If the camping spot allows for it, organize a horseback riding adventure. A guided trail ride through lush forests or along tranquil beaches can be a serene and memorable experience. Don’t forget to capture the moment with plenty of group photos along the trail.
Hiring a professional photographer ensures all the special moments are captured. From candid shots of laughter around the campfire, to a group photo on a beautiful hiking trail, these memories can be cherished for years to come. Plus, the bride will appreciate a well-shot album of her special day with her best friends.
Luxury Pop-Up Picnic
A luxury pop-up picnic can turn a simple meal into a grand event. Set up a picturesque picnic spot with comfortable blankets, colorful cushions, and a large umbrella for shade.
A basket filled with gourmet sandwiches, fresh fruit, artisan cheeses, and chilled champagne will take this picnic to the next level.
Themed Bachelorette Party
Adding a theme to the bachelorette party can make it even more memorable. The theme could be anything from “Woodland Fairy” to “Wild West,” which can be incorporated into everything from invitations, party favors, decorations, and even attire. This can also make for great group photo opportunities.
For the adventurous bride, outdoor sports can add a dose of adrenaline to the party. Depending on the location, this could include rock climbing, white water rafting, or zip-lining. Remember to put safety first and hire experienced guides for these activities.
Outdoor Movie Night
An outdoor movie night can be a magical experience. Set up a projector and screen, pop some popcorn, and get everyone settled in their sleeping bags under the stars. Pick a favorite movie of the bride to make it extra special.
DIY Spa Day
A DIY spa day is a relaxing way to unwind after an active day outdoors. Provide natural, eco-friendly face masks, a selection of nail polishes, and scented hand creams. Don’t forget the cucumber slices for your eyes! Arrange a serene corner at the campsite with soft music and scented candles for that perfect spa atmosphere.
This setting is also a great opportunity for the bridal party to bond and relax before the big day.
Bachelorette Party Gifts
Show appreciation to the bridal party with thoughtful gifts. Tote bags filled with camping essentials like a flashlight, trail mix, a reusable water bottle, and a personalized memento like a bracelet or keychain can make for unique bachelorette party gifts.
Nothing beats the simple joy of sharing stories, or singing around a campfire. This can be a time to share funny or heartfelt stories about the bride, roast marshmallows for s’mores, and enjoy the calm of the night around the fire.
DIY Craft Session
Last, but not least, organize a DIY craft session. This could involve creating friendship bracelets, decorating picture frames, or painting a canvas. This adds a creative element to the party and provides everyone with a personalized keepsake to remember the trip.
One of the best things about being in the great outdoors, far away from the city lights, is the opportunity to stargaze. For a magical evening, plan a stargazing night. Bring along a telescope if you have one and some star maps (or a stargazing app). Lay back on cozy blankets and search for constellations, shooting stars, and planets. It’s a serene and unforgettable experience.
Kick off a day of festivities with a refreshing yoga session. If someone in the group is skilled at yoga, they could lead the session, or you could hire a local yoga teacher. Yoga is a wonderful way to relax, recharge, and bond as a group. It’s also an excellent start to a day of celebrations.
A wine tasting is a great idea for a camping bachelorette party. You could bring a selection of the bride’s favorite wines and gourmet pairings. You can make it even more fun by making it a blind tasting. This is an elegant and fun activity that everyone will surely enjoy.
Capture the Flag
Organize a Capture the Flag game if your bride loves a good competitive game. Divide the bridal party into two teams and have each hide their flag on their side of the campsite. The goal is to capture the opposing team’s flag and bring it back to your base without getting tagged. This is a fun way to stir up friendly competition and create unforgettable experiences.
DIY Flower Crown Workshop
What better way to feel the festival vibes than with DIY flower crowns? This can be a fun and creative activity for the bridal crew. Gather some beautiful wildflowers from around your campsite (if it’s allowed and sustainable) or bring some from a local flower shop. Everyone will love crafting their unique flower crown, which will make for some lovely photos, too.
Canoeing or Kayaking Adventure
If your campsite is near a lake or river, renting canoes or kayaks for a day can be an adventurous and fun activity. This is a great way to explore the scenery while also getting some exercise. Be sure to bring along some waterproof cameras for those action shots!
DIY S’mores Bar
Create a DIY S’mores bar for a fun and delicious treat. Set up a variety of chocolates, graham crackers, and marshmallows. You can add some unexpected items like peanut butter, strawberries, or cookies to make gourmet s’mores. This gives everyone the chance to create their own unique dessert and adds to the camping experience.
Photo Scavenger Hunt
A photo scavenger hunt is fun to capture memories and explore the campsite. Create a list of items or scenes the bridal party needs to capture with their cameras or phones. This can range from someone setting up the tent, a shot of a specific animal or plant, to a picture of the whole group jumping in the air.
Organize a sunset celebration on one of your camping nights. Find a good spot to watch the sunset, bring some snacks and drinks, and toast to the bride as the sun goes down. This is a beautiful moment to share and a great photo opportunity.
Guided Nature Walk
Hire a local guide to take you on a nature walk around your campsite or nearby trails. This is a great way to learn more about the area’s local flora, fauna, and natural history. It can be an educational and interesting activity, especially if the bride-to-be is a nature lover.
From glamping to hiking, spa days to game nights, these are some of the best camping bachelorette party ideas for a camping-themed celebration. The aim is to create an unforgettable experience for the bride and her best friends before she takes her next big step into married life.
