Family Water Olympics
Updated: Dec 15, 2020
Water Olympics is a highlight for TrailHead and Tipi Village campers each week. These fun games and friendly competitions are a great way to beat the heat! While at home, Water Olympics are a great way to enjoy some camp fun while cooling down with your family and friends. So, grab your sunscreen and head outside!
Following the concept of “Duck, Duck, Goose”, this game adds a water element to the fun. Friends will sit in a circle and have one cuppie. The “it” person will circle dropping a drip onto each person’s head and choose the “goose” by dumping the remainder of the cup and calling “drop”!
Sponge Pass –
This is a relay to see who can fill a cuppie the fastest. In order to fill your cuppie each person must soak a sponge at starting point “a” before skipping across the field to squeeze out their sponge into a cuppie at point “b.” Participants must then waddle like a duck back to the starting point to re-soak the sponge. The winner is the first person to fill their cuppie.
Sponge Toss –
Much like the game of hot potato, the faster you toss the sponge the better. Soak a large sponge in water and begin tossing to your partner. Each time you successfully catch it you make take a step back. Once you miss the catch, stop, re-soak your sponge and begin again!
Simon Says – Water Edition
Add a twist to the classic Simon Says game by having Simon include various aquatic-themed directions such as: walk like a penguin, make a fish face, do your best mermaid impression. While calling out the directions, include “rain” and use a hose to shower the participants.
Have some water fun this weekend!
