Tag Games

Tag Games

Tag Games are great, fast-paced chasing activities that get campers moving. Tag games are a great tool for camp staff since you can play them quickly, without props or preparation.

Traditionally, tag games meant anyone who got tagged (or "tigged" for our friends in the UK) was out. You can, of course, still play that way - but why bother? The best tag games give participants a way to get back into the game, or provide them with an alternative role until the game is over.

We encourage you to play tag games, and all camp games, using the "everybody plays - everybody wins" philosophy. Whenever possible, don't keep score, change the rules, and most of all - have fun!
