Required:2 low pedestals about 1 foot square (a piece of plywood set on 2 bricks works)
15 foot rope
Preparation:Place pedestals 6-8 feet apart
Instructions:One camper stands on each pedestal, holding an end of the rope.
On the leader's signal, each camper tries to cause the other to step off his pedestal or let go of the rope, by pulling or pushing the rope.


Instead of a rope and pedestals, two campers can stand on a plank laid across the two pedestals. Then, they try to get the other to step off by:
  • hold a 2 foot stick or dowel with one hand and twist it around
  • hold a short rope with a loop tied in each end
  • hold each others right hand, then left hand
  • push open palm of right hand against opponent's open palm
  • place one hand open flat in the center of opponent's chest
  • link pinkie fingers of right hand
