Capture the Flag
If you have a large group of campers at your site, have some fun playing a classic game of capture the flag. Stake a flag on each end of the camping area and protect it from the other team. First team to capture the opposing team’s flag wins. (This has to be our favorite outdoor game for larger groups!)
