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

Required:bag of colored yarn strips (optional)
Notes:This is an especially good activity for an early morning when you have a lot of open grassy area covered in dew. The trail of the hares is obvious across this terrain and people can follow it easily.
But, it can be played any time.
One pair of campers are designated as the 'hares'. They always stay together and head out in any direction they want.
After a 5 minute head start, the rest of the group follows their trail.

The goal for the hares is to reach a destination told to them by the game leader before the trackers catch up to them. Their second goal is to make sure the trackers reach the destination.
The goal of the trackers is to catch up to the hares as fast as they can by following their trail.

The hares can drop pieces of yarn to mark their trail and the trackers should collect them as they follow the trail.
