Funny Elf on the Shelf Camping Ideas

Did you know that the Elf on the Shelf loves to camp?  Here are some funny elf camping ideas to add to your elf’s repertoire.

Fun Camping Ideas for the Elf

Love them or hate them, the elves are coming.  The sooner you come to terms with that notion, the better.  We have actually had the Elf on the Shelf for close to a decade at this point.  I can remember when we were one of the only families that had an elf and the internet hadn’t yet been taken over by those little red minions.  And while we have never camped with our elf (our camper is always winterized and enjoying a long winter’s rest by November), our elf does appear from time to time in some sort of camping themed adventure.

That got us thinking about what camping fun the elf could have.

We searched the internet and here are the elf camping ideas that we found!

Elf Camping Themed Ideas

No matter where the elf goes, he must make sure to bring along with his North Pole Direction-ator, er, special Christmas themed compass!  Get your own printable compass and point your elf in the right direction.

Who says the elf that wanders is lost?  Sometimes an elf just likes to pitch a tent in the great outdoors and get back to nature! Print this fun Not All Elves Who Wander Are Lost sign for your elf’s wilderness adventure.
