3. Rover, All Come Over
A line is marked dividing campus. All campers gather on one side. One person in center endeavors to have them step over line by calling out, "Rover, Rover, all come over!"
At word "over" everybody is expected to run and cross line, while center man endeavors to catch one. The one caught must help him catch others.
If any one runs over before center man calls "over," he has to go to aid of catcher. When all are caught game begins again.
4. German Bowling
Plant in ground two posts, leaving at least 15 feet above ground.
Spike a 10-foot piece across top. An ordinary ball used in bowling is used by plugging shut holes and inserting a screw eye in one of plugged holes.
Tie tightly to this screw eye a strong piece of rope.
A good-sized screw eye is fastened in cross piece of frame, and to this tie ball. Nine bowling pins are used. The score is same as bowling. The pins are knocked off by return of ball.
5. Water Baseball
The outfit required is a tennis ball, a broom stick and four rafts- one large and three small.
The batsman and catcher stand on big raft. On a small raft, ten yards away, stands pitcher and other two rafts are placed at easy swimming distance for bases.
In striking, everything counts - bunt, swat or foul tip. The moment bat and ball come in contact batsman starts for first base. There are five men on a side.
This game has lots of fun. Avoid remaining in fresh water too long as it has a tendency to weaken vitality.
