Scout Games and Activities

Whether your activity's purpose is to teach, reinforce, demonstrate, or simply to entertain, you will find great activity ideas in's activity library.

Activities and Games can be an important teaching tool. Whether you are teaching kids, teenagers, or adults, people learn best when they have the opportunity to do, to participate, and to experience the principles being taught. Research indicates we learn best when more senses are involved in the learning process. When groups participate in an activity, they have the opportunity to reinforce learning through hearing, seeing, touching, and the brain is further stimulated through social interaction and strategy. Most importantly, activities and games are FUN, so the learners want to participate.

Even when the purpose of a game or activity is merely to entertain, participants gain significant benefits through social interaction, team building, stress relief, and problem solving.

Enjoy using the activity library, and be sure to add your favorite activities and games for others to read!
