31 Camping Themed Bulletin Board Ideas

Make learning adventurous with these camping themed bulletin board ideas. 

Every school year, most teachers are looking for a new theme to deck out their classroom with. Some teachers may switch it up halfway through the year or keep the same theme through the entire year. Either way, you want your theme to be a big hit with your students!

A camping theme or nature theme always does well in a classroom – from second grade to a 5th grade classroom! Whatever age you work with will love it, and both boys and girls can really get into a theme like this. Especially if you have a corner decked with a tent for pretend play or a reading nook!

In addition to classroom tents, a camping chair,  paper fires, and cute lanterns, you may also need some ideas for your walls.

Camping bulletin boards can help tie the room together! Here are a few different types of boards for your camping themed classroom.
