Hi-oh, Campers! 

Welcome to Little Tikes Camp Play@Home! I’m Junior Counselor Jeff (not to be confused with Eco Master Jeff, who, like me, is totally not afraid of the dark). In addition to being a former camper myself, I’ll be your digital guide for all things Camp Play@Home. That’s right, I’ll have tons of videos, activities, games, and more for you to do. Oh, and I wanted to ask if I could borrow your lantern tonight? Not for any particular reason, of course.

Any who, at Camp Play@Home, we’ll be bringing you tons of fun stuff for the whole family to do (and a few things to save Camper Mom and Camper Dad’s sanity, too). This Friday, our Water Play Week activity video goes live, so today we’re going to get things rolling with another fun activity for you and your bunk mates to do together: the water limbo!

How to Do the Water Limbo

Looking for a simple, easy, fun-for-the-whole-family water activity to do this summer? Check out the water limbo. It’s super simple to do (even Junior Counselor Jeff can’t mess this one up) and can easily be done with only a garden hose. Here’s everything you need:

A garden hose

Access to a water spout

Some music to dance to

An open space outdoors

The whole family can join in on the water limbo. Just put on some music (we warned you once, but we’ll say it again: don’t let Camper Dad pick the tunes), turn on the hose, and let someone start spraying it at about head height. The other players take turns going under the water jet from the hose. Once each player has gone under the water jet once, whoever’s holding the hose should lower it a couple of inches and then everyone goes again.

If anyone touches the water, they’re out until the next round starts. Keep going until there’s only one player remaining. Players get bonus points for showing off their sweet dance moves while they limbo! Have a blast, and make sure you capture some embarrassing photos (please share them with us, too)!

Friday’s Camp Play@Home Ultimate Water Play Challenge Course

Oh, and before I forget, we’re making the Ultimate Water Play Challenge Course this Friday for our official Camp Play@Home activity! Here’s everything you need for to participate in this Friday’s Ultimate Water Play Challenge Course:


A slide

(like the one on the Rocky Mountain River Race)


A basketball hoop


Your My First Mighty Blasters™


Any other water toys you want

You can download this week’s activity badge, Super Splasher, here. Make sure you print out your badges every week and have your kids color them in. There will be a new badge released every week of Camp Play@Home.
