Group Competition Games

Game: Bonkers

I have been involved in our Diocesan summer camp now for about 14 years.  As a youth, a volunteer, and now the coordinator of the camp, this is always the favorite. What You Need This game only works with a larger group of people.  We have about 80-100 youth and about 30 counselors.  You could

Game: Brain Fry

2019-09-29T13:22:53-06:00

This is one of the weirdest/craziest youth ministry games that requires no set up, no supplies, and typically 5-20 people. The more people the better I think. Everyone sits in a circle and everyone works as a team to stack as many "layers of chaos" as they can and can handle before your brains are

Game: Larry, Curly, and Moe

2019-09-29T12:45:04-06:00

This is a youth ministry game that we started playing about two years ago and is always a great game because it is quick to put together, the supplies are minimal and it is extremely competitive and engaging. The Ideal Setting This game works if you have anywhere from 12-99 people.  Those may seem like

Game: Pin Guard

2019-09-29T12:31:53-06:00

I am coming to the realization that the game that our youth group played more than anything is not well known by other youth leaders.  Luckily I have a platform to tell the world about it.  So here it is! Pin Guard = Dodge ball With Pins It really is that simple.  If you know

Game: Bigger or Better

2019-09-29T05:55:24-06:00

This is a community youth ministry game where the youth will be going door to door.  It is best to send the kids in groups and have an adult with each group.  It is very simple. Start everyone at the parish with a small item like a rubberband or paper clip.  Give them one hour

Game: Poop the Potato

2019-09-28T19:54:46-06:00

Grab some potatoes and some buckets and you are good to go!  Divide your youth into groups or run it individually.  The person takes a potato, puts it between their legs, takes the potato to the bucket and drops it.  If they drop the potato anywhere else on accident, they must go back to the

Game: Buzz

2019-09-28T06:56:26-06:00

You should split up into groups of 3-6 people. You can have more than six, but not seven people. This game is unique in that the group(s) will work together to win. The goal of the game is to count to 50. One person starts by saying “1.” The next person continues with “2.” You

Game: Egg Russian Roulette

2019-09-27T18:20:18-06:00

This game was a huge success at our summer camps. To start you will need one dozen eggs for every two teams.  Seven of the eggs in each dozen should be boiled and five should not.  Mix them up in the carton so you can't tell which ones are which. We had the teams (small groups)

Game: Stack-O-Cups Relay

2019-09-22T13:16:24-06:00

Supplies Needed Lots of Plastic Cups. 15-20 of one color per team and one of another color per team. This is a quick and easy youth ministry game that can be used as a relay or if you have a smaller group can be done with everyone against everyone. I actually got this idea from
