Reverse-o Camping Activity
|This Activity is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Required:||6 to 10 campers. If more than 11 campers, break into teams of 6 to 8. |
Sheets of paper or markers that campers can stand on. Need number of campers on a team plus 1.
|Notes:||This is a teamwork, cooperation, thinking activity rather than a physical one.|
|Lay out markers in a line. |
Have half the team stand on markers on one side while the other half stand on the other end. There should be one empty marker between the two halves of the team.
- a camper can move forward or backward
- a camper can move only one step to an empty marker or around one camper to an empty marker.
Once the pattern is discovered, the campers leap-frog around each other easily.
- Were you successful?
- Did someone take charge? What did they do?
- What communicating was done and was it productive?
