  • Board Game Tournament

    By Alyse Kotyk

    A classic, old fashioned board game tournament is a great way for you and your friends to gather as a group. Plus, it doesn't matter how many people can come—some games only need two players, others can host many more. Turn the game night into a competition with prizes to be won for a little extra excitement.

  • Geocaching

    By Alyse Kotyk

    If you love exploring your neighbourhood, spending time outside and going on treasure hunts, then geocaching is the right activity for you. You can [watch a short video clip about how to participate here](https://www.geocaching.com/play) but it's fun, free and great for a group.

  • Cook-Off

    By Alyse Kotyk

    If you have friends who like to bake or cook, then why not make your own pizza night or host a cookie competition? Cupcake decorating or even an ice cream sundae party is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening with friends. If you're feeling adventurous, challenge a buddy to a "Chopped" style cook-off and buy each other four mystery ingredients to incorporate into different courses.

  • Movie Night

    By Alyse Kotyk

    Movies are great to go to with a bunch of friends, but sometimes they can be a bit expensive. Invite everyone over for a home movie night complete with sweet treats and popcorn. If you can, try and borrow a projector and enlarge the screen on a blank wall for a cinematic experience.

  • Pick-Up Sports

    By Alyse Kotyk

    For an active alternative, playing a pick-up game of basketball, soccer or frisbee is an easy activity for a group. If the weather's less than ideal, your local rec centre probably has a gym you can use; try squash or racquetball if you're looking for something different. A round of bowling is always a fun option too, especially on a glow-light bowling night.

  • Camp in Your Own Backyard

    By Leah Bjornson

    Who needs to travel outside of the city to experience the great outdoors? Grab a couple tents and park yourselves in your backyard for the night. If you're allowed, get your parents to help you make a small fire or a bed of coals over which you can roast hot dogs and marshmallows. Even if your friends can't stay the night, this will make for the perfect evening and will have your dreaming of the summer.
