Youth Group Games

Boy Scout Group Games

Action, competition, and rough play are what boys are about but there are times when a more quiet large group game may be needed. Whether you have an entire forest or a small room, find games here to use in your scouting program. We've included our favorite group games for you to try. Remember, Scouting is a Game with a Purpose.
Choose your scout group for a list of games just for them, or search for games of a specific type or name.

Most of these ideas make great Christian youth group games also. These group games for kids are fun for a small group indoors or a large group outdoors. The games range from quiet to loud and are arranged by appropriate age groups.
