Bounce Ball

Campers are free to run around the area (gym, outside within boundaries, etc.) as they please. When a student picks up a ball they must stop moving and their feet become frozen. Students throw the balls at other players using the “one bounce” throw. If a student gets hit by a ball that has been “one bounced” they must sit down where they got hit. Students that are sitting are not out of the game, they attempt to get balls as they roll past them. If they get a ball, they may throw it, while still sitting down, at a player that is standing. If they hit the standing player, the sitter gets to stand up and the player that got hit will sit down. Play continues this way for the rest of the game. Make sure to emphasize that you may not move if you have a ball and that you should not move while sitting down to get a ball.
