Young Women Activity Ideas

August 11th, 2014 in Parties

I brought these games to do at our girls camp. But I know they would work well for a Young Women Activity Idea or as a 10 minute opening to an activity. Most of these are getting to know you friendship type ideas.

Getting to Know You Better VolleyBall

So basically you sharpie up a white volleyball with random questions. When the girls toss it back and forth wherever their left thumb lands, they have to answer that question!

Me TOO! String Game

So for this game you need to think up more simple questions. For example: favorite music, favorite color, last book you read, your favorite social media app, last place you went on vacation, etc. Questions that the girls can answer in a second and that they could have other people have the same answer. So when a girl answer the questions if other girls have the same answer they raise their hand and say me too. Then you pass the string around. It soon creates a big spiderweb and you see how much everyone has in common with each other.

The last thing I brought to camp was a print out of…

Jump Roping Rhymes, Hand Clapping Rhymes, and Hopscotch Layouts

It is fun for the girls to do old school playground games!


Also I’m not sure where to put this. But during camp I had up a bulletin board with the girls’ pictures on it. Every night I put up a new sticky note thanking them for something they did that day. One day I wrote down 3 amazing things about them. AND!! LISTEN!! I did not say anything about looks or use the word sweet. The girls need to know REAL things that are wonderful about them that are on the inside of them.



Those are my random Young Women Activity Ideas that you could use for girls camp or just a weekday activity.

Sorry I didn’t save the exact list of questions on any of these activities, you can think them up, makes it more fun that way.
