Fun, active team building games keep scouts energized and interested. Whether you play a great outdoor game while camping with your entire troop or an indoor game with a small den, remember Scouting is a Game with a Purpose. Most games can be played by cub scouts and boy scouts, but some require activity not suitable for younger boys. When you use a scout game that the boys like, you'll know because it will be requested over and over and subsequent meetings. Please let us know if you have a favorite we missed or if you use one you found here and it is a big hit. Have fun building your group of boys into a team of scouts through games and camping.

This site itself is immensely helpful.  What a great place to start building the camaraderie of our small but growing pack!

There are some awesome ideas here!  Thanks for the great resource.

Can you recommend an indoor game for a Pack of 100 boys (1st - 6th grade) for 15 minutes? The theme is coopertation. The space is pretty small so I don't want anything overly active. Maybe an ice breaker to get to know one another better. Or to learn more about camping?

Lesley - 100 scouts in a small space and you don't want them overly active? :-)  good luck!
Maybe try "Line Up" - tell them all to line up by birthday from January over here to December over there.  Once they're done have them line up alphabetically by first name.  Then, by number of pets.  Then, by ... whatever.  There's no winners, but they all have to work together.
