Camouflage Party Games



Hide & Seek

Hide & Seek can be a great game to play at a Camo party.  Paint the kids faces with camo paint and see who can hide the best from the other players.   At night flashlights are fun to use for a game of flashlight Camo Hide & Seek.


In Plain Site

For this party game you will need an item that is camouflage colored such as a piece of cloth, army man or plastic toy jeep.  The first player takes the item and "hides" it in the backyard - but the item cannot be completely hidden from view.  They must try to camouflage the item so that it blends in with the background. 

After the item is hidden the rest of the players come out to a designated spot and try and find the item.  They must stay within the spotting area and try to find it using only their eyes (or you can provide binoculars).    On "go" start a stop watch and see how long it takes the kids to spot the item.   The child who spots the item gets a point and the one who "hid" the item gets a point for every 15 seconds that their item is not found.   
   

Capture the Flag
Kids of all ages love to play capture the flag.

For complete instructions see Capture the Flag.

Treasure Hunt
A few hours before the birthday party begins hide small toys like army men or objects like plastic gold coins.  Send the kids out on a quest to recover the hidden items.  They can take home the items they find as party favors or turn them in for bigger prizes.

 

Camo Obstacle Course
Set up a big obstacle course that kids will run through or have relay style races in teams.  Teams compete to see who can finish the obstacle course first and individual players can compete with a stop watch.  Make a mud pit that they have to crawl through or step through tires or hula hoops while all the other players throw water balloons at them.  Stake several rows of string about 2 feet off the ground that they have to crawl underneath. Trampolines, swing sets and climbing gyms can all be used to make the course.

Water Relay Games
Teams complete to see which one can fill their water jug first.   You'll need a very large container filled with water for both teams to use and two plastic milk jugs - one for each team.  Teams are given a spoon, sponge or cup with holes in the bottom and on "go" race to see who can fill the milk jugs first.  

 

The large container and the teams jugs should be a good distance apart ... the farther apart the more water they will spill while running to fill their jugs. 

 

See our huge collection of Outdoor party games for kids parties.  Squirt gun games, water balloon games, pool noodle games and many more!  Perfect for a Camo party!
