Capture the Fort Camping Game
|This Game is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Required:||soccer ball or NERF ball|
|Instructions:||At least 7 campers per team.|
One team stands in a circle facing outward. Each camper places their left hand on the right shoulder of their neighbor and must keep it there. The team leader stands in the center of the circle. This is the fort.
The other team spreads out outside the fort. These are the attackers.
The soccer ball is a bomb. The leader drops the bomb to the attackers. They try to kick the bomb through the holes in the fort wall - between legs or between bodies. Or, they can kick it over the top of the wall.
If the bomb touches the ground inside the fort, it explodes. The team leader in the fort can catch the bomb and throw it back before it touches the ground. The walls can use their bodies or right hand to deflect the bomb.
Either switch sides after each explosion or after a set time limit.
