    The boys attending are youth ages 10 and older. We will be camping out on a rural farm.

    Shooting guns seems to always be popular. Maybe taking them squirrel hunting as well.

    Primitive fire starting training can be interesting, corn hole board competition, show the kids how to make a simple hammock.

    Have them build a debris shelter and sleep in it

    Someone kill a deer a few days before. Then have roasted blackstrap over an open fire. A 22 rifle and shorts is fun for all, too.

    Forget cornhole, go old school and have them play washers or horseshoes:)

    All good options above, but, sometimes the best thing you can do is just spend quality time with your son, you can fill the day and night with activities, but in the end the best times ( or from my experience camping with my son) was the times we just sat by the fire talking.
