A Wide Game is a game best played over a wide outdoor area and involves a wide range of activities based on a theme or storyline to heighten your imagination. The theme and activities make the game exciting and loads of fun. The number of participants can be as small as one patrol or hundreds of Guides at a large camp. The time taken to play a wide game will vary from game to game and can last as long as you like. It could last for the length of the Unit meeting, for a few hours or even over a weekend at Camp!
Click on the Buttons below to download information on what Wide Games are, how to write a Wide Guide plus some examples of wide games that you can plan and play with another Patrol or your Unit.
Note that these ideas were written by older Guides at a National Event a few years ago so why not let your imagination run wild and make up your own Wide Games. And if you invent a Wide Game that you think other guides would enjoy too, please send it to the firstname.lastname@example.org so we can share your Wide Game with other Guides and Leaders.
