Two Must-Have Recreation Supplies

Kids love to play, and at CentriKid Camps, we love to play, too. Recreation is one of my favorite parts of the camp day because it is packed full of fun and games. Many of the games we play at camp require a few basic recreation supplies. We know that many of you incorporate recreation and games in your ministries, and we often get questions about the gear that we use at camp. Today we are featuring two of our most frequently asked about recreation supplies.

Poly Spots

poly spotThese are a great tool for creating boundaries, lines, place markers, starting points, or standing positions. We commonly use these to create dividing lines in the middle of play areas (for capture the flag or other “territory” games). We also use these as a “home” for sports balls in various relays and games (“return the ball to the spot”). Poly Spots lay flat on the ground, so kids can run over them without tripping or stumbling, and they are very durable.

Low Profile Cones

Spectrum ConesThese are another great resource for creating boundaries or lines. We use these at camp to create play areas or to make routes for sports drills (passing in football, soccer, etc.). This summer, we’ll introduce your kids to a game called “Volcanoes and Craters” – team volcano tries to turn all the cones right-side-up, and team crater tries to turn them all upside-down. Low Profile Cones are softer and more durable than traditional, hard-plastic dome cones, and they are more forgiving if someone steps on them.

You can typically find both of these resources at any sports supply store, or you can check out vendors that specialize in recreation supplies such as BSN Sports or S&S Worldwide.

Leave a comment if you have other questions about recreation supplies you have seen at camp, and get excited about all the fun we’ll have at camp this year at CentriKid Camps!
