Most of these 30 ideas for fun outdoors are free or inexpensive. When any of these summer activities does involve materials that cost money, try first to borrow them from a friend or neighbor (tent, binoculars, etc).

There are so many fun ideas to try, you're sure to find a few the fit your plans.
