Liquid Chain Camping Game
|Required:||1 small paper cup per camper.|
1 larger paper cup per camper.
2 cans or small buckets per team.
|Preparation:||Place one can full of water at the starting point for each team - each with the exact same amount of water.|
Place an empty can for each team far away from the start.
Divide the distance between the start and end into a section for each camper on the team
|Instructions:||Tell each team to choose a play area and have one camper from each team stand in a section.|
Give a paper cup to each camper.
People can not leave their sections.
On 'Go' signal, first camper fills their cup and transfers the liquid to the next in line. Repeat all the way to the last camper who fills the bucket.
Team that fills the end bucket to a predefined amount first wins.
OR, team that has transferred the most water in a set time wins.
OR, when each starting bucket is empty, team with the most water in their end bucket wins.
Alternate: Use larger and smaller paper cups, giving at least the two closest to the starting point a larger cup and those at the end smaller cups. Let teams try a second time rearranging their team if they want.
Alternate: Blindfold every other camper so they must listen to teammates to find where to pick up and drop off water.
