The Group Building Games

In order for camp and service project to run smoothly. It is important that at the beginning of the week, we are put into situations where team work and communication are necessary. The way that we do this on SOUL is through group building games. These are games that make the participants, chaperones, and staff all have to work together to accomplish the task set before them.

One of our games was blanket volleyball, which is a lot of fun, but can be very hard if your team doesn't work together.

Another game that we played involved working as a team to get everyone across a set of cones laid out on the ground. Again, these tasks are meant to get everyone to work together and create a sense of team among the participants.

These games can be frustrating, but Sunday afternoon is always a time of fun and bonding as we get ready for the week.
