Ditchem Camping Game
|Notes:||game for a large group over a wide area|
|Instructions:||Identify the play area, which should be a large field or forested area.|
Identify a Jail Space for captured campers.
Divide the campers into two teams.
Team A has 1 minute for its campers to hide anywhere in the designated play area while Team B has their eyes shut.
A signal is given, and Team B spreads out, searching for hiding campers.
Found campers must be tagged - rougher versions require being tackled - to be captured.
Captured campers are led to the Jail Space where they must stay - rougher versions allow captured campers to attempt escape on the way to jail, but never once placed in the jail.
Once in jail, the camper can be rescued by having a teammate run to the jail area and tag the jailed camper.
The Jail can have as many guards as the searching team wants.
The round is over when all hiding campers are in jail. Then, teams switch roles and try again.
