Shooting Fish in a Barrel Camping Game
|This Game is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Required:||tennis ball or other soft ball|
|Notes:||You may need to have penalties for unnecessary roughness amongst the fish or for a shooter trying to injure a camper by throwing too hard or aiming for the head.|
|Instructions:||Mark out a large circular area. |
All campers except one are inside the circle. The camper outside has the ball.
On 'GO' signal, the camper outside the circle begins shooting the fish in the barrel by throwing the ball at them.
Anyone hit by the ball leaves the circle and becomes a shooter also.
The last camper left in the barrel wins.
An alternative is to have one team inside the circle and everyone else outside. A timer is used to track how long it takes to eliminate all members of the team in the barrel. When a campers are hit, they leave the circle but do not join in the shooting.
Each team takes a turn in the barrel to determine which one lasts the longest.
