Once the sun is down and the bonfire is lit, the fun and games are ready to begin! Star gazing, having a cold beer or singing a song in unison around the campfire usually suffices, but if you want to up your campfire game and everyone's not ready to go to bed yet, try these super fun camping games for adults - it will surely make your camping trip even more memorable!

Two Truths and A Lie

This is a classic fun game that encourages everyone to participate. It serves as a great ice breaker if you're just hanging around the campfire at night. This is best played among individuals who don't know each other too well (think camp neighbors who decided to hang out together).

Each participant will think of of 2 facts about them (it could also be something they've done) and write those down in a piece of paper. Be creative about what you write - the stranger and the more vague the fact is, the more fun the game. In addition, come up with a lie.

Take turns to state these 3 "facts" and have everyone guess which of the 3 is the lie!

Wink Murder

Another classic game that is perfect for playing around a campfire. This one is best played by a large group of people - the more, the merrier!

Everyone sits around in a circle and will be asked to close their eyes. The "leader" (someone who won't be playing) will walk around and choose the "murderer" by tapping them on the shoulder. If you get a tap, then you're the murderer.

Once the murderer is chosen, the leader will ask everyone to open their eyes. The murderer then proceeds to "kill" victims by winking at them secretly and discreetly and they must do so without anyone from the circle noticing.

If you get winked at, you're out. One can only win if someone who's still in the game catches the murderer wink at someone.

Famous People

This is a fairly easy game with simple rules but is extremely fun to play. Basically, someone will begin the game by saying a famous person's name out loud. The next person in the circle must think of another famous person with a first name that starts with the first letter of the previously mentioned famous person. If it's your turn and you can't think of an answer, you're out.

Play these fun camping games for adults at your next outdoor adventure for more enjoyment!

The world is a smaller place today and students regularly travel abroad to study. Or they may be taking a gap year to travel the world. Whatever be the case, these students don't have access to funding or support from family and friends the way they would at home. And since youth also brings a certain amount of carelessness, accidents and illnesses are not out of the question.

One of the most important things students who are planning to go abroad can do is get travel insurance before travelling. The preconceived notion is that insurance policies are very expensive is not true anymore. Today, there are tailor made policies designed just for student who are working with a really tight budget.

Choosing the Right Kind of Travel Insurance for Students

Choosing the right kind of travel insurance for students is very important. Here is a list of things you should look for in your insurance cover to ensure that you have a comprehensive budget travel insurance package:

Ensure that hazardous activities are covered as standard in your insurance package. Students will take part in sports, and these can cause injuries. Having coverage means that they are covered and need not worry about prohibitively expensive medical bills.

Look for a policy that offers 24-hour emergency assistance. You never know when you could need help, so it is important to know you have a support system in place.

Look for standard coverage for pre-existing medical conditions. Insurance companies can provide free medical coverage as part of the standard cover for a range of conditions. Check to see if your condition is a part of that list. If it is, you could save a lot of money in medical bills.

If your medical condition is not listed as a part of the insurers' standard coverage, connect with them to see if they can provide extra coverage for your condition.

Go through the policy in detail and see if there are add-ons that you need which are not a part of your standard cover. You may need to customize your policy so that you can get cover for your valuables, cover for cancellations, excess waivers, etc.

Make sure that there are no hidden costs when you are buying your travel insurance policy. Ask for details of all costs up front so you know exactly how much you are paying for your policy.

Ensure that there is a repatriation back home option in your insurance plan.

Choose the right kind of cover for your trip. If you plan to stay in Europe, you will get a cheaper plan. However, if you plan to go to countries other than Europe, be prepared to shell out some extra cash.

Ideally, you should not have to use your travel insurance at all during your trip. However, if the worst does happen, then you will truly appreciate the protection that you travel insurance plan offers you.

I've been talking to many CEOs about how they and their teams are doing now that we are nine or ten weeks into the pandemic. Here's what many have said:

We're exhausted. There's been no break from the bushfires, the hail storm, and now a pandemic.

We're doing okay. We've managed to make it through with solutions and are hanging in there.

Our teams are losing focus. It's hard to get them to engage.

As a CEO, now is the time to plan your next team gathering. There is still no end in sight. No magical finish line. But there is a little more stability in the uncertainty.

Depending on where you are, and how much restrictions have eased, you need to be planning an important team reset.

We've been through a lot. There is more to come. We need to process and make sense of it.

A team reset meeting needs to include:

Stage 1: REFLECT

Outline the facts of what happened. A timeline is a great way to do this.

Map the journey of feelings. A parallel line, like a heartbeat signal, is a great way for each individual to map their own peaks and troughs through the experience to date.

Explore meaning. Ask each person to share what this time has meant for them. Each person's circumstances and background are unique, and the experience will mean different things to different people.

Stage 2: REVIEW

List successes. What has the team done well through this process?

Explore lessons. Not everything was great I am sure. What can we learn from this experience?

Identify what we can carry forward. What new practices, values, or attitudes do we want to take with us through the next phase of our work together?

Stage 3: RENEW

Check in with the vision. Is this still relevant and meaningful?

Check in with the path forward. Do the next steps make sense for the vision and our current circumstances?

Check our goals. Do they need adjusting or ditching? Do we need new goals?

Put some closure on the first stage of the pandemic response. The acute first stage of the crisis is over. That's worth acknowledging and sharing with each other.

Every gathering is a special opportunity to create community, to celebrate, and to connect. This is especially important now. Be kind to one another, and make some space for a pause and a deep breath together. We've been through a lot. Good on us.

Another good idea is to have this session facilitated externally, so that you can fully contribute as well. I love this work and would be delighted to assist you in the design and facilitation of your Team Reset. Book a chat with me here and let's explore your team reset now!
