Camping Classroom Theme Ideas for Elementary Teachers in 2022

A camping classroom theme helps you create a nature-inspired elementary classroom. Your students will feel like they are going on a fun adventure in the summer to the forest whenever they enter your classroom! Teachers love this theme because it’s simple and can be done on a budget by pulling in natural elements like pinecones, acorns, leaves, and sticks. You can also bring camping items from home, which makes it so you won’t need to store your camping gear in your house during the school year. That’s a win-win! This theme works well for both lower and upper elementary classroom decor. Learn more about a camping classroom theme below and scoop up this camping classroom theme packet!

Camping Theme Bulletin Board Ideas

Below are some camping theme bulletin board ideas for elementary teachers.

Camping Bulletin Board Backgrounds

You can contact various parks and request trail maps that you can be used as bulletin board backgrounds. You can also use burlap, flannel and denim as bulletin board backings to create a rustic DIY vibe. If you choose to use fabric as your bulletin board background, natural tones like brown, green and beige provide a nice neutral backdrop.

In the newer version, we used all new clipart which includes much more diverse characters. Also, we made the entire bundle 100% editable so not only can you customize it with your students’ names and details specific to your classroom, you can now translate EVERYTHING into other languages too. This has long been a request from teachers of ELLs and immersion classrooms. Both versions are available in the Elementary Classroom Decor Collection.
