Welcome, Enrichment Center staff! Each of the games below allow for proper distancing and don't require any shared equipment. Games are organized by age group and spaces where they can be played. Each link will take you to online game rules, a downloadable pdf, and a video which explain how to set-up, play, and modify each game.  

You will also find general resources on how to organize play spaces, safely transition young people to and from these spaces, and get their attention. 

Getting started: Watch this video for tips for running a safe, active, and fun activity. In this video, we will review (1.) our ready, explain, play strategy for organizing recess, (2.) tips on how to lead a game, and (3.) conflict resolution strategies.

View our task tent activities designed for kids to play independently. All task tents are ideal for students in kindergarten through fifth grade and can be played in almost any space including auditoriums, cafeterias, gyms, hallways, and playgrounds. 

Looking for more ways to keep kids active all summer long? Join us for virtual camp Monday through Friday. The schedule features a variety of active, creative, and game-based programs that keep campers engaged, learning, and having fun every day. Join the fun.
