Pack up the tent, get your gear and head out of town for the great outdoors. You can't get campfire-cooked hot dogs at brunch at the Plaza, a sleeping bag isn't something you'll find at the Ritz, and the bathroom accessories won't quite be the same as the Four Seasons, but camping is a perfect way to mark Father's Day. Dad likes roughing it, so indulging in a weekend of sleeping under the stars gives you the chance to enjoy summer and show Dad you care.
2) Miniature Golfing
It's no Augusta National, but spending the day with Dad outside in June at a miniature golf course might make him feel like he's won the Masters. You might have a six-stroke limit in a game of nine holes, but the fun is limitless.
3) Build Something
Whether it's a birdhouse, kids' toys, or a tree house, building something with dad is a gift he won't forget. Quality time at the workbench is something he can't buy for himself, and the satisfaction of money and time spent well will make a happy Father's Day for everyone.
A family outing in the woods cries out for a camera. Celebrating Father's Day on the trail gives you time to be present with each other and with nature. A hike clears the head, clears the air, and gives your dad an experience that can't be duplicated.
5) Mountain Biking
Hitting the trail on two wheels on a summer Sunday afternoon is great. Hitting the trail on two wheels on Father's Day is amazing. Not only does Dad get close to nature and a challenging workout, but he also gets time with the family. Riding down gently sloping terrain will keep the whole family busy and Dad happy.
6) Fix Something
Helping Dad get his hands dirty is a great way to honor him. Maybe it's a broken toilet or a carburetor that needs to be fixed. Together, thinking strategically, deductively and creatively, you can enjoy the kind of bonding you can't wrap a ribbon around. Accomplishing something as a team is a memory that will last longer than soap on a rope.
7) Rock Climbing
For an adventurous dad, a great challenge might be the perfect gift. It takes skill and courage to scale a mountain, but starting small is always an option. Spending the day with the family at a climbing gym is a good start for more challenging experiences, and will still be a grand Father's Day.
8) Adventure Races
A thoughtful gift is a gift of mental and physical strength. Adventure races combine endurance challenges like cross-country running, paddling and orienteering to give participants a full mind and body workout. For the dad who's too evolved for a treadmill and too smart for a smart phone, there's no better way to spend Father's Day.
