Name Games

Name Games

Name Games are designed to help participants learn each other's names, begin conversations, and set everyone in the group at ease. It is always best to do a couple of these activities first before beginning other ice breakers or team building activities.

A good name game not only reinforces names with faces, it helps associate participants with their personal interests or talents. Although all activities and ice breakers are fun, many people find new settings to be stressful, and these activities help establish basic introductions in a fun way.

These name games are perfect for camp counselors, resident assistants, teachers, or business meeting facilitators.
