  • Lake Olympics: Divide guests into teams and organize fun lake games like water balloon toss, kayak races (for adults or older children), sack races on the beach, and a watermelon seed spitting contest.
  • Superhero Splash: Encourage guests to dress up as their favorite superheroes, set up an obstacle course with water features, have a water gun fight, and award prizes for the “best splash.”

Relaxing Lakeside Themes:


  • Camping Under the Stars: Pitch tents, roast marshmallows over a fire, tell spooky stories, serve s’mores and hot cocoa, have a stargazing session with a star chart app.
  • Zen Lake Day: Set up hammocks for relaxing, provide yoga mats for an outdoor yoga session, offer refreshing spa water with fruit slices, play calming music, and have a bonfire with acoustic guitar music.
  • Bookworms by the Beach: Bring beach chairs and umbrellas, set up a pop-up library with books about lakes or summer themes, have a picnic lunch, and encourage guests to relax and read.

These are just a few ideas to get you started. The best theme for your lake party will depend on your guests’ ages and interests!
