Kick the Stick

Campers are divided into two teams. Two sticks need to be found and they should be of equal length and density (about a foot long and a quarter of an inch thick works well). Boundaries need to be established, including a starting zone and a finish line about twenty feet away or so. Each team lines up behind the starting line. When the game begins, the first players from each team need to kick the stick as far and as hard as they can. The object is to move the stick from the starting line to the end line without picking it up. Once reaching the finish line, the players run back to their team carrying the stick and drop it to the next camper in line. Each player goes once; and the first team to complete the task wins.
