Onion Rings Studios has the best Youth Group Games Birthday party games and more! I have a massive library of games, ideas and activities for youth groups that I have collected over the last 20 years. I am currently rebuilding the site to make it easy to find free games for your event.  This project is set for May - August 2014 when we hope to have everything back up from the old site. Feel Free to Donate so I can hire some help and finish sooner with the 1000's of games and skits for summer camp.

Most games are filed under Indoor games unless there is no way to do a game indoors.  
We have a selection of fun group games, youth ideas and youth activities for youth group and youth programs including youth group icebreaker games, wide games, youth camp games, messy food games, indoor youth group games, outdoor youth group games, water fun games, junior youth games, icebreaker ideas, memory verse games,youth bible games, church youth group games and team building games.
Youth Group Games has a huge range of icebreaker games for youth ministry and groups. "Icebreakers" (or ice breakers) are games or activities that break the ice and help people get to know each other at group functions, parties and events.
Ice breaker games are great for small groups or large groups where there are many people who don't know each other.
Having some relaxed, fun icebreaker games, icebreaker activities or warmup games at the beginning of a group meeting can be a fantastic way to the ease the group in the becoming more relaxed around each other. To get some ice breaker activity ideas view our collection of ice breaker games for small groups, icebreaker games large groups, icebreaker games teamwork and team building activities.
