Keep reading this section to come across a couple of great camp games for youth.
Camp Games For Youth Ideas
The Real Treasure Hunt!
There probably isn’t a single person that hasn’t participated in a treasure hunt! No doubt, the game is heaps of fun but that doesn’t mean it comes without a saturation point! Nevertheless, setting off on a camping trip provides youngsters with the terrific opportunity of playing ‘the real treasure hunt”! What does one mean by real? Imagine traversing jungles and mountains to seek hidden treasures. Thrilling, isn’t it? Divide the players into four or five groups and equip each group with an itinerary or a list of things to hunt for. Sketch each object in terms of underlying properties. For example, head southwards and use your third eye to spot something that’s pokey and green or head towards the big apple tree and lend your ears to a sound that is infinitely pleasant. Assign each group with about six to seven tasks until they arrive at their final destination and dig up the most desirable treasure. This can be immeasurable fun and very knowledgeable as the youth learn a lot about nature!
Jump the Rope!
This game is incredibly exhilarating and quite challenging! You need to appoint any two facilitators who will opt to swing the rope while participants attempt to hop over it. Facilitators have the liberty to make their own rules which every player must follow before jumping the rope. For instance, the first person to jump will do so with his hands on the head while the next will have to do so with his hands on the buttocks! Depending on the number of participants, groups will be made. If any one participant fails to abide by the rules, the entire group will have to restart or their points will be deducted! The group with minimal error will be declared winners. This is a great way to build appetite after which the youth can treat themselves to some delicious hot snacks.
Hide & Seek
This is a game that has sailed through centuries and never gets boring. The differences between playing ‘hide and seek’ at home and that on an isolated campsite are manifold! Nothing can outshine the splendor of hiding under the wilderness of a remote marsh and waiting for your best friend to track you down. In the process, kids are likely to encounter several mysterious and exotic things. However, bear in mind that continuous supervision is mandatory!
The objective here is to discover the different beautiful sounds created by inanimate objects of Mother Nature! Give each player about fifteen minutes to chance upon objects that produce sounds when banged together or rubbed against surfaces. Soon after, each player brings back a selected item or instrument and a chosen conductor organizes an unusual orchestra. The conductor ideally chooses a tune with an easy rhythm and leads the orchestra into a rapture of unconventional melody!
