Two-man Relay Camping Game
|This Game is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Required:||for each team: rubber ball, chair, pop can, unbiased judge.|
|Preparation:||Define the starting line for each team.|
Place the pop can on a chair about 25 feet from the start line.
|Instructions:||Teams line up in single file lines.|
The first camper is given the ball.
On 'GO', the first two campers carry the ball to the chair and place it on the pop can.
When the judge says it is good enough, one camper picks up the ball and they both run back to their team.
The ball is given to the next two campers who repeat the relay.
Score a point for each successful ball placement and play to a specific score.
HOW the ball is carried is where the fun begins. Have campers carry it between their foreheads, or between their backs, or with the backside of one hand each.
If the ball is dropped, the pair pick it up and start over from where it was dropped or back at the starting line. Or, they run the ball back for the next pair to try and forfeit their point.
