School Camp Games

school camp games and activities

Having lots of fun on great school camps in South Australia and some interactive games in between scheduled activities can be lots of fun and help with the bonding of students.

Camps build integral parts of development including self esteem, leadership, self respect and self identity and camp games can be designed within your program to help nurture and develop these things which lead to the child's future success.

Not to mention that these games are best done with fun and energetic camp songs to make it more exciting. Here are some of the best camp games to do during a school camp.

Balloon Battle
Inflate balloons and tie on a string for each team member. Each player ties the other end of the string to their ankle.

There are two teams - the teams try to burst the others first by stepping on them.

Team with the last balloon wins.

As your balloon is burst you withdraw from the game.

Shark and Octopus Tag
Everyone begins the game as an octopus and stands on one side of the playing field.

One person is chosen to be a shark and they will stand in the middle of the playing field. Play begins when the shark calls out, "Octopus, Octopus, swim in my ocean!"

All players must run across the playing field trying to get to the other side without getting tagged by the shark. Anyone who is tagged must sit down where they are tagged. They now become the shark's helpers.

When the shark calls out "Octopus, Octopus, swim in my ocean!" again, the players will try to run back to the other side. Anyone who runs within arms reach of the sitting players and gets tagged must sit down. The game continues until there is only one person left.

Sausage
Everyone sits in a circle.

The person who is it stands in the centre of the circle.

Each person asks the person who is "it" an appropriate question.

The only answer to every question can be "Sausage."

The first person to make the center person laugh wins a try in the middle.

Ex: What color is your hair? Sausage.

What do you brush your teeth with? Sausage.

(Obviously other words can be used for variety)
