Here in Australia, we’re blessed with beautiful campgrounds which allow us to surround ourselves with nature. There’s nothing quite like kicking back around a campfire, switching off from technology, and enjoying precious time with family or friends.
In order to create an unforgettable camping experience, however, there’s one item you simply can’t leave off your list: a Pixxie portable projector.
Keep reading to find out how Pixxie can transform your next camping trip into a magical, outdoor cinema experience!
One of the most popular uses for the Pixxie portable projector when camping is to enjoy an outdoor cinema experience surrounded by nature. After all, who wouldn’t love to watch their favourite movies under the stars? The days of “roughing it” while camping are long gone, as modern technology makes way for a whole-new era of glamping. That means you and your family or friends can gather around the campfire, toast marshmallows, and watch a much-loved movie—complete on the big screen.
You can simply pair your Pixxie with a roll-down projector screen or get creative by draping a white sheet over one side of your camper. Your outdoor cinema setup can be as extensive or as simple as you’d like!
Prevent any potential boredom among younger campers by using your portable projector for a games night. You can use your projector to accompany games such as charades, virtual escape rooms, or any other puzzle-themed games which require group participation. You can also create your own camping trivia night using Kahoot, then project the questions and answers onto a large screen.
The best part is that the Pixxie portable projector is battery-operated, so you don’t need a power source to use it. This is something which is very beneficial when camping outdoors!
Education Among Nature
A camping projector also lets you turn a fun night among nature into an educational experience. You can use it to watch relevant documentaries about our planet, national parks, or even outer space. If you’ve got littlies in-tow, then you can even stream some of their favourite educational TV shows to keep them both entertained and learning new things. It’s a win-win!
Pixxie makes this easy for campers, as it’s already preloaded with popular apps such as Disney+, Netflix, AmazonPrime, YouTube, Spotify, KODI and more.
Here are some popular ideas for documentaries to get you started:
- Our Planet by David Attenborough
- Our Great National Parks
- Tiny Creatures
- Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet
- Absurd! Planet
If you find yourself isolated in a big and beautiful national park, then it may be the perfect time for some campsite karaoke. This is a serious upgrade to the traditional rendition of “Kumbaya” around the campfire. Plus, thanks to the lyrics being projected onto a large screen, it allows everyone to join in!
Although campsite karaoke has a different vibe to it than party karaoke, that doesn’t mean you can’t let loose with your vocal cords and have some fun—providing no other campers are within vicinity, of course.
Think of some great songs you and your fellow campmates would love to sing around the fire, then create a YouTube playlist complete with lyric music videos. Here are some popular ideas to help you get started:
- Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver
- Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd
- Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond
- Hotel California by Eagles
- Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen
Camp Photo Slideshow
If you love capturing your surroundings while camping, then you can also use your portable projector to put on a slideshow of your finest work each day or night. Your campmates will love reliving the day’s events through your images, plus it gives you a chance to review them on a big screen.
This isn’t just reserved for photography, either. If you or one of your campmates is a budding videographer, then it can be really fun to watch their work and reflect on your favourite moments of the trip so far.
