Halloween Camping Games

Add a Halloween holiday twist to ordinary games. Here are a few ideas…

Eyeball Egg Toss

Create an eerie feel to an egg toss game by using black electrical tape or magic markers to draw an eyeball on the egg.

You can use raw eggs to add an extra-gross feel to the competition when an egg is dropped … or just use hard-boiled eggs to keep clean-up to a minimum.

Each team of two people toss their egg back and forth, when a team drops their egg … they are out of the game.


Glow Stick Pumpkin Bowling

Make 10 glowing bowling ball pins from bottled drinking water by activating the glow stick and dropping it into the bottle … then replacing the screw-on lid.

Now, use a mini-pumpkin as the bowling ball and play a game fit for the Halloween holiday!

Wicked Witch Ring Toss

Place a Halloween costume witch hat on the ground and use glow stick necklaces as rings to toss around the hat.

The camper with the most rings around the hat is the winner.

Hot Pumpkin Toss

Just like a game of Hot Potato, toss a mini pumpkin around a circle while playing music, when the music stops, the player holding the pumpkin is out of the game.


Candy Bar Bingo

Play a game of bingo but replace the board chip markers with mini bite-sized Halloween candy.
