Alligator Swamp Trail

Use existing lines in the gym, on the yard or create them using jump ropes. Make sure all students understand that the goal is to stay on the line (swamp trail).Talk about how to pay attention to the person in front you so they don’t accidentally knock someone off the trail. Give a description that you and the class are now entering the alligator swamp. To stay safe they must stay on the line, but if they step off they could get their foot chomped on by an alligator. Make sure to be dramatic to make it more fun. Have the campers follow you around the swamp and tell them if you see an alligator near them! If someone falls off the line they are out and become an alligators. Alligators sit in place where they became out and try to scare fellow campers off the line when they come by.
