Beanbag toss

The game of bean bag toss has been a camping and BBQing favorite for decades. Perfect for families with a wide age range, this game can include your toddlers and your teens. The wooden platforms, each with a hole cut in it, are placed a reasonable distance from each other. While there are traditionally two colors of bean bags, more colors may be added for each player, or the players may separate into teams.

The team that earns the most points by getting their bean bag through the platform hole or landing their bag on the platform wins the game.


Bocce ball

This uproarious game allows for tons of laughter and many players. The intent of the game is to get your bocce ball (a large weighted and colored ball) closest to the small white ball (the pallino). Each player takes turns throwing their ball in an effort to get closest to the pallino.

This game is extremely compact, making for easy travel and loads of fun.



This ancient game, supposedly originating in ancient Rome in the form of the game “Quoits,” has entertained people for centuries. The game consists of numerous horseshoes and two stakes. At your campsite, place each stake into the ground a reasonable distance from each other. Each player will take turns throwing the horseshoes at the stakes. Points are given for those horseshoes that hook around the stake. The player or team with the most points wins!
