Hi Campers! Do you ever get bored of playing the same old games every time you go to the beach or the pool? We sure do! That’s why we’ve come up with a whole list of games you can play this summer no matter where you’re spending time. Try them out and have a parent tag us on Instagram @bumpclubandbeyond #Campbeyond so we can share with other campers too!
Water Volleyball: cool off by taking your game of volleyball to the water. Use the same rules as you would on land but try to spike the ball, so it splashes your friends!
Beach Bowling: Set up empty bottles or cups like bowling pins. Using a ball, take turns trying to get a strike! Make sure you don't set up too close to the water or your entire game could be washed away!
Water Bucket Relay: grab a couple of buckets, a couple of cups, and some friends and divide into teams. Each team should form a line. Place the bucket in front of the first person in line. The first person runs to the water with a cup, fills the cup, brings it back, and dumps it in the bucket. Try not to spill! Once the first person has emptied their cup in the bucket, the next person does the same thing. The first team to get through their line first wins!
Pool Eye Spy: Before you head to the pool, make a list of things you might see. A blue bathing suit, a clear pair of goggles, a bird trying to steal a potato chip, you get the gist. During swim breaks, see if you can spot any of the items on your list. If you find one, tell your group you found it but don’t point it out to them. Let them see if they can find it too. If they find it, compare answers and see if you found the same item or different items!
Sand Art: take some time to collect a few things you see on the beach like shells and small pieces of driftwood. Use those items to draw a picture in the sand!
