Fake ID and church

A church camp is a great way to have fun and good time. In addition to learning more about religion, children will play different games and have fun in their free time. Team building games are especially popular in church camps. There are many games, and all of them are based on various topics - cartoons, comics, anime, tv-shows. One of the most popular team building camp games is called "Spies and Police". It is based on the following story: a gang of spies appears in the team, and the police together with civilians need to reveal all the spies. To let the players plunge into this atmosphere of espionage adventures, you can order fake ID characters for them. Children will be delighted, they will be happy to play this game and have fun.
