Next time when you go camping, try to play these fun games with people in your group or other campers. These activities can give you and your kids lots of laugh and a great way to build relationship with other campers.
1. Circle Jumping
Stand everyone in a circle with all hands clasped. One of crowds lies down in center with a rope as long as one-half diameter of circle.
To end of rope is tied a small weight like a sand bag. He whirls weight around with full length of rope revolving with increasing rapidity.
As it approaches players, they hop up and let it pass under their feet. The one whose foot is touched is out of game and person who keeps out of way of rope longest is winner.
Here is a Japanese game full of fun and action.
Place a dozen or more campers in line, and have each fellow place his hands firmly on shoulders of person in front of him.
Choose one of fellows for "Wolf." The first person at head of line is called "Head" of Serpent, and last fellow is "Tail."
The "Wolf" stands near head of Serpent until a signal is given. Then he tries to catch "Tail" without touching any other part of snake.
The others who form body of Serpent protect "Tail" by wreathing about in all sorts of twists to prevent "Wolf" from catching "Tail." This must be done without breaking line.
When "Tail" is caught, "Wolf" becomes "Head," and "Tail" becomes "Wolf." The last person in line is "Tail."
The game can be continued until every camper has been "Wolf."
