Twist Stick Camping Game
|This Game is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Required:||long straight stick such as a broomstick|
|Instructions:||Two opponents, of similar size for fairness, hold stick at full height over their heads. |
On 'Go' signal, both campers try to twist the stick in the grip of the other.
The stick can be lowered and raised.
When the judge gives 'STOP' signal, campers stop immediately and let the judge determine how the stick has twisted. Marking the stick with a notch on top or a line of paint will help.
You may add the rule that a camper can not move his feet.
Alternative: Each camper holds the stick with two hands so the stick is perpendicular between the two and horizontal. The object is to push the other camper's left side of the stick to the ground while keeping his own left side off the ground. First to touch the ground wins - play best of three tries.
