This Activity is meant for older campers.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.

Preparation:Mark out a 50 to 100 foot long play area.
Notes:This activity promotes problem solving, teamwork, and trust.
Objective: Heal everyone in your team as fast as you can.

Scenario: Your team has contracted a strange, paralyzing sickness from the food prepared for breakfast. This sickness causes paralysis from the shoulders down. Luckily, your team leader seems to be immune. He has found a mineral deposit that sucks the poison from your body and allows you to walk again.

The team leader must transport someone across. Then, that camper can help bring others across.

You may use an optional rule that the camper being transported must be completely off the ground to be moved - he cannot be dragged.

Reflect:
  • What was the plan used to solve the problem?
  • How did you all come to that plan?
  • How was Trust needed in this activity?
  • How did you show you could be trusted?


Allow the campers to try again this time choosing the first immune camper they want.
