We chose this option for our epic house party! You can see how it turned out here
For large groups — if your camp has hundreds of kids — this is the easiest option
. You can print as many copies of a game as you like without incurring extra charges. Then assign a table to each group and provide them with a copy of the game.
We designed our printable escape room kits to be played at a table without decorations, lockboxes, or spooky music (although the music is great if you can pull it off). Each group member takes a different clue sheet, and the team works together to tackle the puzzles before time runs out.
We have a website dedicated to hints that campers can access on a smartphone. Alternatively, you can have them report to you to request hints, ensuring no one cheats.
Make your game into a race. Post a scoreboard to show who finished first and how many hints they needed. The campers will work hard to sit atop the big board!
You should have a counselor available for every 3-5 groups. The counselor will assist with technical issues, dole out hints, and explain the process to groups that might not understand the game.
While you won’t be decorating a dedicated escape room for each group, you can create a cool and immersive experience by decorating the room with posters and DIY or dollar-store decorations. Make sure to use a killer soundtrack (included with each game) to really immerse kids in the theme!
