Brief Description

Big booty is a game where you get to say "big booty." Everyone sings a song about Big Booty and then each person has to count to the rhthym. Did I mention that you get to say "booty?"


  • A circle game where students have to stay alert, remember their number and remember what order they are in

This Is How You Play

  1. Campers stand in a circle
  2. pick one person to be the "Booty" ("it"). The object of the game is to become the "Booty."
  3. Start counting off, giving everyone a number, start with 1 on one side of the "Booty" and continue around until everyone has a number but the "Booty."
  4. With a slow rhythmic pattern, everyone in sync should clap hands to thighs and then clap together - teach campers the pattern of movement before you try to teach them the song.
  5. Learn the song next. Ahh, Big Booty, Big Botty, Oh Yeah, Big Booty (thigh) (hands) (thigh) (hands) (thigh) (hands)
  6. Keep the rhythm going, and as soon as the above saying is done the person designated as the "Booty" needs to say "Booty to the (any number)"
  7. If your number is called you then, without hesitation must say "(Your Number) to the (any other number or the Booty).
  8. If a camper hesitates or talks out of rythym, then they must go stand next to the person with the highest number and everyone that was behind that person before, their number has changed.
  9. At first, after each camper that messes up moves to the end, you can recount to make sure everyone knows their new number.
  10. Eventually each person is responsible for remembering their number. Each person is also responsible for knowing their new number, without recounting
