It’s been said that necessity is the mother of invention, and with ever-shrinking budgets and little time for vacations, sometimes we need to get creative when it comes to an occasional three-day weekend or odd day off.
The term “glamping” has been used to describe the act of camping with added luxuries instead of just the essentials, and the word “staycation” has nearly worn out its welcome describing the act of taking a few days off and just relaxing at home.
Today’s roundup combines the two with some whimsical inspiration points for camping at home… or, rather, taking a “glamping staycation,” from old-fashioned teepees to ultramodern personal pods.
Whether it’s welcoming an overnight guest and wanting to give them more privacy than an air mattress in the middle of the living room, a safe yet adventurous way to spend a Friday night with the kiddos or just an inventive idea for a cozy night in with a loved one, these ten indoor camping ideas are full of childlike creativity and — the most important part fun.

Luxury Tipi for Indoor Reading
- 💗 CAMPFIRE WITH S’MORES! This luxuriously handcrafted tee pee set comes with a fabric campfire set with enough s’mores pieces for 2, which means that your little one can share treats with others! And what that really means is they will develop vital social skills while bonding with a friend! And what that ultimately means is they will learn one of life’s most essential skills: roasting s’mores with friends while camping!
- 💗 LIGHTS UP FOR PRETEND CAMPING Children will have open-ended play time with a campfire and s’mores under the stars when they turn off the room light and turn on the “Twinkle Lit Teepee”! They can snuggle up with their stuffies under the soft glow from the twinkle fairy lights while they read a book or play pretend and make-believe. It’s among the best gifts to promote imagination and dramatic play with young children ages 3, 4, 5, 6, and up!
- 💗 READING NOOK For those that need an independent space for cooling down in the classroom or in the home, this teepee provides a peaceful, cozy corner to read in and relax. Designed by a former first grade teacher turned mompreneur, this tent offers a quiet reading space that can be used to foster early childhood development in literacy and creativity! It is an ideal gift for toddler preschool, kindergarten, and other elementary school classrooms.
- 💗 CUTE FOR PHOTOS Whether you’re a parent or a photographer looking for a prop, this teepee tent for kids will help make your photos come to life! You can record a child’s precious fleeting moments of innocence that the whole family can cherish – they’re only little for a very short time!
- 💗 EASY ASSEMBLY: Unlike other teepees that offer a frustrating experience of threading a shoestring through tiny holes, the Twinkle Lit Teepee comes with cute pole top covers that are permanently attached and make setup easy! The poles simply slide all the way up to the top of the teepee and you’re done! The illustrated instructions provided show exactly how to do it, but many people prefer watching a demo on video – so point your phone’s camera at the booklet and it will take you to a video!
