Here are ten fantastic pool noodle games inspired by the spirit of summer camp, guaranteed to bring smiles and laughter to campers of all ages.

 

#1 Noodle Sword Fights

Transform pool noodles into soft, safe swords for epic duels. Kids can challenge each other in friendly, supervised battles. Add a bit of creativity by making shields from cardboard to enhance the experience.

Set up a challenging obstacle course using pool noodles. Bend and secure them into arches to crawl under, weave them into zig-zag paths, or use them as hurdles. This game promotes physical activity and coordination.

 

#3 Noodle Relay Races

Incorporate pool noodles into relay races. Campers can balance a noodle on their head, use it as a baton, or even race while hopping with a noodle between their knees. It’s a great way to encourage teamwork and have a blast.

Create a fun version of floor hockey using pool noodles as sticks and a lightweight ball or balloon as the puck. Set up goals with cones or other markers and let the games begin!

Cut pool noodles into rings and set up targets at varying distances. Campers can take turns tossing the rings, aiming to land them over the targets. This game helps improve aim and focus.

 

#6 Noodle Tag

Give each camper a pool noodle and play a game of tag where players can only tag each other using the noodles. This adds an exciting twist to the classic game of tag and ensures everyone is active and engaged.

 

#7 Noodle Jousting

Create a jousting arena with two balance beams or lines on the ground. Campers can stand on these lines and use pool noodles to try to knock each other off balance. It’s a safe and hilarious game that tests balance and strategy.

 

#8 Noodle Limbo

Use a pool noodle as the limbo stick and see how low campers can go! Gradually lower the noodle as the game progresses, and see who can bend the furthest without falling.

 

#9 Noodle Tunnel Ball

Form tunnels with pool noodles and have campers roll balls through them. This game can be turned into a team competition to see who can get their ball through the tunnel the fastest.

 

#10 Noodle Tower Building

Challenge campers to build the tallest tower they can using pool noodles. They can stack, balance, and connect noodles in creative ways. This activity promotes teamwork, engineering skills, and creativity.

Pool noodles are more than just flotation devices; they’re gateways to a world of imaginative play. These ten games are just the beginning of what you can create with pool noodles at summer camp. Encourage campers to come up with their own noodle-inspired games and watch as they dive into hours of fun and creativity.
