We’ve compiled a list of our favorite camp games and activities that need little to NO supplies! Some have written instructions, some have video instructions, and some have both. At camp, we always open our activity classes in prayer. Before each class, you can pray for safety, fun and for God to reveal something about Himself through the activity.
Pro-Tip: One of our favorite things to do is to look at each activity and see if any of the principles we used or learned can apply to our understanding of the Gospel. After each class, ask your family if they can find how the game you just played relates back to a spiritual truth!
Create your own skit and perform it during lunch!
Just roll up a few pairs of socks to use as your “dodgeballs” and have the best activity class ever!
The goal of the game is to pass the watermelon around the circle without getting any strikes. This game is a blast and you even need a watermelon to play! Watch the video below from our Men’s Director, “Squawks” over at the Outback.
Let our Ridge team show you how to play an awesome game of Demis! This outdoor basketball game is such a blast – just watch the video below for instructions. If you don’t have a basketball or basketball goal at home, no worries! At the end of the video, our instructors will show you how this game can be played with alternate supplies.
The object of the game is to be the last person with an arm or leg left at the end of the rounds. You will be trying to get other people out by tapping their arms in the positions they land in. Once an opponent hits your arm then that arm is “out.” You must put that arm behind your back. The last person who has an arm left wins. Click the video below to watch our staff explain and play a round!
It’s time for a Nerf War! Follow along in the video below as one of our Silverado staffers shows us how to have a nerf activity class at home.
This is a family camp classic that is so fun and easy to play at home!
This fun and easy game can be played with no supplies at all! Just grab a few family members and play this hilarious game that will have you screaming with laughter… seriously!
A poisonous frog is on the loose! In this game, somebody is a poisonous frog who causes everyone who they stick their tongue out at to fall asleep. The poisonous frog’s identity is hidden, so a detective must be chosen to find the frog amidst the rest of the people in the circle before everyone falls asleep! If the detective finds the poisonous frog before it’s too late, the poisonous frog becomes the detective and the detective tells the town to fall asleep so he/she can choose the next poisonous frog (but the detective cannot reveal the frog’s identity).
