Tightrope Walk Camping Activity
|This Activity is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Required:||20foot length of heavy rope, tied into a circle.|
1 staff or broomstick.
|Notes:||This is a team building, trust building activity.|
If teams are too small, combine two of them into a single group.
|Tie the rope into a circle so all campers can hold it with about 18 inches between each camper. A smaller circle for a smaller team.|
Lay circle of rope on the ground.
Team stands around rope and picks it up.
All campers hold onto the rope with both hands and lean outward as far as they can, making the rope as tight as possible.
One camper picks up the staff to use for support on the ground as needed. He steps up onto the rope and walks around the circle back to his starting spot.
Let each camper that wants to, have a try at walking the tight rope.
