Hot Pepper

Players stand in a circle. Leader stands in the center with the hot pepper (playground ball, volleyball, etc.). Leader throws ball to camper saying “hot pepper”. Camper throws the ball right back. If a camper drops the ball, they’re out and sit down where they are. Winner is last one standing. ACTIONS (best part of the game): When the leader says “asparagus” all campers jump up and down twice and say “woo woo” (sitting campers just raise their arms instead of jumping). When the leader says “broccoli” all campers wave their hands wildly and say “ooga ooga ooga”. You can add any word and any action at any time.
