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

Required:rubber ball or nerf ball for 1/2 the campers
Preparation:mark two parallel lines 10 to 20 yards apart, depending on type of balls.
Instructions:Split the group in half.
Each team lines up facing the other on the start lines.
A leader is chosen for each team - oldest, tallest, shortest, whatever you want as long as a new leader can easily be selected through the game.
Flip a coin to determine which team starts.
The coin toss winners start with the balls.

Teams take turns throwing balls and being targets.
When the leader of the Target team yells FIRE, the Throwing team all let loose their balls trying to hit the targets. Any camper hit is out of the game.

Once a volley is thrown, the roles are reversed with the Target team leader yelling FIRE when his team is ready.

If a team leader is out, the next camper in age or height or ... takes over as leader.

The team with the last camper standing wins.

Variations:
  • If Targets catch a ball, the thrower is out.
  • When FIRE is yelled, targets can run away from the line and dodge around, or their feet can not move, or they must squat down and cover their face with hands, or ...
  • A Thrower that hits a Target above the shoulders is out.
