Have fun participating in activities such as rock climbing, swinging on jungle vines, spelunking, rowing a boat, tree climbing, making s’mores and more. With customization options and collectible play, Camping Mama lets everyone go wild in the great outdoors!

This game is right up my alley! My husband and I both have DS's (we are truly kids at heart) and our game selections are very different. He's really into the racing and brain games, while I prefer the  more virtual reality games. I like to feel productive and this game allows you to do that. I also like to feel like every day is something new. Where you're not driving the same race track, but rather exploring a new area or taking part in a new challenge... and this is the game for that.

While playing as one of the children, you face tasks and challenges while exploring your surroundings. You can find treasure, make recipes, decorate your camp and so much more. You can collect bugs and fish to keep in your scrapbook. The game holds endless hours of new and exciting activities for children (and some adults... hehe).
