When you come to Roaring Camp Gold, the prospecting can keep you and your kids busy for the majority of the daylight hours.  However, for those hours spent camping around your campsite, you may want to consider some of the items that could keep your youngsters happy and entertained.

Camera We definitely recommend bringing cameras.  Whether they are disposable or otherwise, they will provide the child the opportunity to document his or her travels.  Pictures can be taken on the gold that you find, but also of the time spent around the campfire, of your car journey coming and going, as well as the other special moments that will undoubtedly occur.

Bikes There is much to be explored when camping and bicycles can provide a great mode of travel while being adventurous.  They can also provide hours of entertainment for the kids, who are often just as happy to drive back and forth on the same strip of dirt road.

Balls Of multiples shapes and sizes, balls will undoubtedly be a big hit at the campground, for pickup games of throw and catch, kickball, or soccer.  Give a kid a ball and a nice place to play, and you will be amazed at how much fun he or she can come up with.

Magnifying Glass There is a lot to be seen at Roaring Camp Gold.  Some of those items are tiny and may be best enjoyed with a little magnification.  Kids can explore the tiny rocks, the small gold nuggets, as well as various insects while camping.

Cards On the occasional rainy day, it is nice to have a pack of cards.  You will very likely that you enjoy the experience of teaching the various games as your child has learning them.  Remember, the camping experience is all about building a stronger bond.
