Camping is a vital part of American life that many families and friends can hardly get enough of.

In recent years, many campgrounds have added to the fun with the addition of themed weekends such as Christmas in July, Pirate’s weekend, Halloween weekend and more.

To make things even more entertaining and engaging campersAPP, a company that provides campground owners with the chance to create a custom app, has released Augmented Reality Themed Weekend Experience Bundles, according to a press release.

Parks who utilize campersAPP can now launch a variety of augmented reality scavenger hunts and experiences, which are played through the app and across their parks, giving campers another way to explore the park and enjoy their stay.

Augmented reality functionality is expected to help campgrounds enhance their marketing capabilities with experiences that can be deployed at their park, online and in their local communities. Parks who are not using campersAPP are encouraged to come on board and be part of the tech-enhanced future of camping, notes the release.

“At campersAPP we are striving to create something campers have never seen before while providing parks with experiences that “wow” their guests, noted Heather Gere, cofounder of campersAPP. “This is a core part of our mission and we believe these new games will do just that. Our AR games provide a digital twist to traditional scavenger hunts, can provide educational value and reveal hidden surprises at every turn.”

Guests who visit campersAPP enabled parks can partake in these scavenger hunts and earn digital badges at the completion of each game. The games can be played multiple times to earn a higher-level badge with every win.

campersAPP’s current Augmented Reality Experience Bundles include:

  • Pirate’s Loot, an adventurous scavenger hunt featuring 3D animated doubloons, pirate music and pirate phrases throughout. Also available for Pirate’s Weekend are two character visits. An animated pirate and flying parrot can be launched at the park encouraging photo taking and sharing. Pirate’s Loot video preview: https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/552587859
