First Day Of Camp Icebreaker Activity

It’s the first day of camp; for some kids it may be a new experience and they are nervous about now knowing anyone. Having an icebreaker activity on the first day of camp is a great way for campers to get to know each other in a fun and silly way. It’s important for the counsellors to engage each camper and encourage everyone to participate. The following activity is always fun and can be geared towards younger and older campers. To add a bit of a challenge, counsellors may add in the rule that campers must find a different person for each clue or that they can only use the same person for 2 or 3 clues depending on the size of the group.
