The video game Roblox is exploding in popularity. In it, users design and upload their own games, and they play games that other people have created. If you’re a parent of a tween or teen, your kids are probably playing already! According to CNN, about 75% of American children ages nine through twelve play Roblox regularly with friends.
Creators have published millions of games on the Roblox platform, and it can be overwhelming and hard to find some that are both fun and enriching. Our counselors have scoured the Roblox universe and chosen ones that combine friendly competition, engaging challenges, and creative fun. They started with kid recommendations, which were audited for content. Then our team did online research and added their comments based on their experience with different Roblox games.
If your kids come to our Roblox clubs, they’ll play these games with our counselors and other connected campers in a safely moderated environment where good behavior is required. Our counselors are experts at creating a positive and fun place to play. They also love to game!
Use this guide to find suggested options. Games are recommended as appropriate and fun for kids 8-13, except as noted. Games are free to play on public servers, and some allow in-game purchases.

Roblox Tips for Parents
- Participants and behavior are closely guided in Connected Camps’ setting, but at any other time (outside of the club), kids will be joining public servers with others. Some things for parents to be aware of:
- Kids can mute chat immediately when joining so that there isn’t any risk of links or bad language being shared.
- Parents can set restrictions on their kids’ Roblox accounts here. If you set the account’s birthday to under the age of 13, it limits chat options and places a tighter restriction on the chat.
- Read this information from Roblox to learn how to set the account so that your child can only chat with friends added.
- You can look at the account’s inbox to see any messages sent and received by the account to know if anyone is trying to talk to your child.
- At the top right corner of the home page (and on the profile), there is a list of recently played games that you can monitor as a parent to make sure your child is not joining any games that are inappropriate.
Roblox provides an engaging online place for kids to play with friends. We hope this guide helps you know more about the world of Roblox, and that it helps you find the titles that your child(ren) will love. For fun and games in our moderated environment, be sure to check out our weekly clubs.
