Spud Camping Game
|Required:||any soft ball that won't hurt when it hits someone|
|Notes:||This has been a favorite for a long time.|
|Instructions:||Every camper is assigned a number from 1 to the number of players.|
Players form a close circle with one camper in the center who has the ball.
The camper throws the ball straight up as high as he can and yells out a number.
Everyone scatters except the camper whose number was called. He catches or picks up the ball. As soon as he has the ball, he yells "SPUD" and everyone must freeze.
The camper with the ball can then take up to 3 giant steps towards any camper he wants. He then throws the ball at the camper. The target camper can move all parts of his body to dodge the throw - except his feet.
If the camper is hit, he gets S otherwise the thrower gets S.
Everyone gets back in a circle and whichever camper received a letter gets to throw the ball up for the next round.
When a camper reaches S-P-U-D, he is out of the game. Or, after a set time, the person with the least letters is the winner.
