Review quote

The purpose of this book is to gather and describe all the best camp games under one cover... The authors collectively have many years of experience as campers, camp leaders and eventually teachers. This is evident in the variety of games they present as well as in the way the information is presented. The handbook is very well organized and easy to understand... Instructions are presented clearly.... One of the best features of the handbook is the Tips for Leaders which...include dealing with rulebreakers, pros and cons of elimination games, and ways to modify games.... The illustrations are a great supplement to the instructions...The illustrator clearly made an effort to include children of many different races, sizes and abilities in her illustrations. The 175 Best Camp Games would be a valuable resource to not only camp counsellors, but anyone who works with young people. Parents, teachers, recreation leaders, and childcare providers would likely find many uses for the wide array of games described in this handbook.--Claire Perrin"Canadian Materials" (04/16/2010)
