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 possible and yells out a number.
Everyone scatters except the camper whose number was called. That camper catches or picks up the ball. As soon as the camper has the ball, they yell "SPUD" and everyone must freeze.
The camper with the ball can then take up to 3 giant steps towards any camper desired. The camper throws the ball at the target camper. Target campers can move all parts of their bodies to dodge the throw - except their feet.
Campers that are hit get 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 campers reach S-P-U-D, they are out of the game. Or, after a set time, the person with the least letters is the winner.
