Bail the Ship is a fun large group game. It pits two groups against each other and burns off a lot of energy. I have seen it played at Vacation Bible School and at camp. It’s always a lot of fun.
It can be used with an ocean or adventured themed VBS or camp. Or just change the name to fit your theme. 🙂
How to Play Bail the Ship (Large Group Game)
This game does not have a winner or loser. It is just for fun and getting wet!
- Two large sheets or towels
- A divider, such as a volleyball net or a rope or cones
- Lots of water balloons
- Divide the playing area into two parts using the divider.
- Create two teams of equal size.
- Give each team a supply of water balloons and a towel (or sheet or blanket).
- Each team will use the towel to launch water balloons to the other side.
- Players may catch water balloons and launch them back.
- Balloons which land on the ground and do not break may also be launched to the other side.
- Play continues until all of the water balloons have been broken.
