What better way to keep your own summer outdoor adventure going than by entering into the Camping Mama “Write Your Own Verse” contest? Majesco Entertainment is asking fans to channel their favorite campfire songs and reimagine some new lyrics for the official Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures trailer. You can check out the official trailer here:
Set to the tune of Stephen Foster’s classic “Camptown Races”, the trailer shows off many of the exciting activities featured in the game, the first in the best-selling Mama franchise that allows gamers to play as Mama’s children. Majesco is looking for creative entrants to submit their own lyrics set to the tune and theme for a chance to win their verse recut into a new version of the trailer, as well as a Camping Mama-branded “survival kit”, including everything you’ll need for your own outdoor camping adventure!
The official site for the contest is, where you can also check out the official rules, view the prizes and submit your own entry for your chance to win.

Launched on September 13 exclusively for the Nintendo DS, Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures allows players to navigate the wilderness, live off the land and master their survival skills to thrive in the great outdoors! From adventurous activities like rock climbing and spelunking to necessities like foraging for food and cooking your meal, you’ll explore the island and interact with the wildlife as you create lasting memories with Mama and her family – and get inspired for a brand new campfire tune!
• Based on the best-selling Cooking Mama franchise that has sold more than 8 and a half million units in North America alone, Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures allows players to explore the camp site and island as they play a mix of stylus-based cooking, crafting, treasure hunting, and action mini-games in the signature Mama format.

• Participate in activities including rock climbing, swinging on jungle vines, spelunking, rowing a boat, tree climbing, and more.
• Use items in mini-games to survive in the woods - craft a fishing pole to fish, sharpen knives and axes with stones you’ve collected, make a fire to cook shellfish you’ve caught, cook the eggs collected from captured chickens to eat, set up your camping tent to sleep in, construct a net to catch butterflies, and much more!
• Experience nature in a variety of settings, such as the Forest, Mountains, and Seas in day, night, snow, and more!
• Find treasure that you can use in further adventures, or even to decorate your camp.

• Perfect mini games you’ve unlocked in Challenge Mode.

My Thoughts on Camping Mama:
I have been in love with Cooking Mama for years.  My kids have developed a love for her games too but it as initially MY game.  So I was excited to hear that a new game was coming to the line, but with a different spin.  Camping Mama is a fun new game that my boys actually enjoyed more than the other 'Mama" games we have because there is more game going on in between the typical challenges "Mama" has.  You work your way through the different scenes, being careful to avoid thinks like snakes as you make your way to the camping themed mini games.    Enjoy camping without the bugs in your sleeping bag with Camping Mama for Nintendo DS.
