I will be leaving on Saturday the 19th of June to go work at a summer camp in Big Bear. I will be working with groups of kids aged 9-17 years old at different time. There are a lots of activities for the kids to participate in during the day including horse-back riding, archery, rock-climbing and kayaking to name a few. However in the evening, is the casual hang-out time just before bedtime. I've been spending the last couple days learning scary stories and songs and stuff for the kids during these hours. Of course this is also a great time for games. So what to bring? Here's what I've come up so far. Let me know if you have any recomendations, keep in mind space is limited as I will be taking a guitar and cameras and of course, my clothes and toiletries.

Duh.

Actually I'll probably just play this one with the other councelors as the themes might be a little inapropriate for kids.

I will also be bringing along a deck of cards and a hoyle guide.

I picked Spoons to represent this because I've found that kids love fast and furious games. The crazier, louder, and more hectic the experience, the more they seem to enjoy it. That's why I'll also be bringing . . .

Story-telling games are especially fun with kids or extremely creative adults. This one is so compact that I will carry it with me in my mind! (wrap your head around that one.)

This is probably my favorite camping game: it's small, it's indestructible in rain and wind, and it scales well to all ages and number of players. Yes, it's simple, but there IS some strategy and it's just plain fun.

Makin' Bacon!!!
