Hodge Podge Ball

Start with the group spread around a large play area with each campers holding something to be able to hit the ball with. One player bats the tennis ball, with a utensil or object from around camp, to another player in the circle. The receiver tries to send the ball to another member. The ball bounces once between each hit. If a person fails to receive the tennis ball, or send it to another player, they are eliminated. The game continues until one player is left. THEN, everyone passes their utensil one person to the right, and the game begins again. The choice of utensils makes the game a success. Because each person will have a chance to use each utensil, they can be various shapes, sizes and styles. If you don’t have enough objects to hit the ball, have campers bat with their hands.
