Summer time is a time for being active and having fun. I have my daughters’ (age 13 and 9) undivided attention in the car and I asked them what their favorite physical activities during summer camp. Here is what they came up with:
Pacman- Everyone stands on a line for example basketball court lines. Two people are it and try to tag others. The runners can only run on the lines and can’t get off of a line. Runners can jump from line to line if needed. Once a runner gets tagged, he has to sit on the line. If a person is sitting on the line then another runner can’t pass them and the runner has to go the other way on the line or jump to another line. The two taggers can go around the people sitting on the line. The last person running is the winner.
Frisbee- Throw the Frisbee as close as you can to the cone and whichever team has their Frisbees closest to the cone wins.
Dodge ball- At my daughter’s middle school they had a school wide dodge ball competition.
Fastest Tagger in the West- Everyone is it and tries to tag each other. If you get tagged you have to sit right where you are and you can still tag other people if you can reach them as they run by. Whoever is last wins.
