Have a Greystone girl you are shopping for this holiday season? Today, we are pairing up two of our favorite things: camp and games! Our Card Games class is so popular, and we know many of your families enjoy playing games over the holiday season. Why not get your Greystone girl a game-based gift that pairs up with her favorite part of camp? Check out our suggestions below!
Disclaimer: Make sure to check the ages on all of these games, as some are just for older campers.
Check out: Throw Throw Burrito
What’s better than mixing a little dodgeball with a card game? Throw Throw Burrito is a camp favorite for a reason, and we know your Greystone girl will love it too. If you’re looking for an outdoor version, check out their new Throw Throw Burrito Outdoor Extreme (a great way to get all of the children outside of the house!).
Check out: Unstable Unicorns
Every Greystone girl knows that a trunk full of costumes is essential to the Greystone experience. Add in a unicorn costume? Even better. This game is funny and great to play with a group. There is a version specifically for younger campers, and even a Christmas Expansion pack, if this game is up your ally.
Check out: Similo
Is it just me, or do the pigs look exactly alike? This card game is reminiscent of Codenames, in that you’re trying to find similarities amongst the cards. If animals are her thing, this is a fun, quick card game to pull out or throw in a stocking. There is also a Wild Animals, Fable, and History version.
Check out: Cat Chaos
Kitty Camp is a class suggestion we see time and time again, so why not lean into her feline obsession with a great game? This is a personal family favorite right now and is great for all ages (my 7 year old plays with his granddad). It’s better for groups (so more than 2 players) and can be played in about 2 minutes a round. Great stocking stuffer for the cat lover in your life.
Check out: What Do You Meme
This game will have your family laughing in no time! Light up that Christmas tree and play a few rounds of this game to fill some of those longer Christmas break times. Great to play with cousins and extended family.
Check out: Pindaloo
A fun outdoor game that works on your hand-eye coordination. Your Greystone girl can build up the coordination to be ready to take on Juggling class this summer! Or, if she already knows how to juggle, this is a fun way to vary those skills.
Check out: A Game of Cat and Mouth
This game was a hit at our Taco Cat themed event this past summer, and your Riflery-lover will appreciate this shooting-accuracy game. Good for all ages, this is a fun, more active game that is perfect to stick under the Christmas tree.
Check out: The Chameleon
Get into character in this game as your Greystone girl will try to blend in and not get caught. Fun for groups and families, this is a very popular game amongst our college-aged staff.
Check out: Laser Tag
A great family gift! This is the laser tag set we use at camp, and we’ve had great success with it over the years. It holds up well and has been so much fun! The lights are loads of fun at night, and with the early sunset time right now, it would be perfect for winter nights.
Check out: One Night Werewolf
For older campers, this game is essentially Mafia in card game form. Your Greystone girl will fondly remember rainy days in Landsports or Sunday afternoon cabin fun with this great Christmas gift!
Check out: Trekking the National Parks
Girls who love this game really do love this game, and it will remind your camper of taking a Hiking excursion at camp. This game is more of an investment (both time and money-wise), but it is fun for all ages.
Check out: The Crew
This card game will have her thinking of late nights at camp when the stars start to peek out. Fun for a group and easy to play, The Crew is a favorite of many of our staff.
Check out: Exploding Kittens Recipes for Disaster
This version of Exploding Kittens has Cooking class written all over it! This is a popular camp game for a reason, and our campers love many versions of this game: the original Exploding Kittens, the Party Pack (which our campers especially gravitate towards), and the Barking Kittens expansion pack.
Check out: Kubb
This backyard game is a fun addition for your Landsports-loving camper. It is great for casual fun, and we highly recommend this outdoor game for all ages! A perfect family gift.
Check out: Dominion
If camp history is exciting to her (or you!), this kingdom-building and family-centric game is really fun. This game takes a while to play, but if you can put in the time, it is a favorite amongst our staff for a reason. If you like this type of game, check out the Intrigue version or Seaside version.
Check out: Gravity Maze
Figuring out how to get from one level to another is a cinch for any High Ropes-loving camper, so Gravity Maze would be a fun one-player game to add to her Christmas list. Boost creativity and thinking skills while also having fun!
Check out: Hanabi
This unique game is perfect for the Greystone girl who loves the July 4th fireworks show! You work together with the other players in this game, making for a creative take on a card game. Different and fun!
Check out: Wingspan
What a beautiful game (it is a visual delight!). I don’t think I’ve met anyone who tried this game and didn’t like it; instead, once you play, you just want to find more people who want to play with you! This game takes more of a time commitment, but is perfect for the lazy Christmas holidays. Check out the expansion pack if this really is your thing.
Check out: BrainBolt
Every Zumba-loving camper knows that to keep up in Zumba class, you’ve got to move fast and follow the dance pattern. Same with BrainBolt! This memory-style game is quick, fast-paced, and will keep you thinking on your feet.
Check out: a Light-Up Frisbee
Are you really prepared for Christmas break if you don’t have a light-up frisbee at your house? While it’s sometimes hard to get my children to go outside during the day, there is something about handing them a light-up frisbee at night that has them running for the door. A great gift for the holidays!
Check out: Planet
This is hands-down one of the most unique games I’ve played in a long time. If your camper loves admiring the beautiful trees that line the Lower Road, she will love this earth-hugging game called Planet. Definitely new and different!
Check out: 5-Minute Mystery
Our August campers loved our Clue Evening Program, and any campers who appreciate solving a good mystery should check out 5-Minute Mystery. It’s easy to play and keeps your mind thinking throughout the game.
We hope your holidays are filled with wonderful game time with your family! Which games are your family favorites that we left off the list? Let us know below!
