Chuck Race

Campers should be standing behind their desks with their chair pushed in. Explain that during this activity, they will not be able to talk. The group’s goal is to beat the clock. They want to accomplish the task as quickly as possible. When the adult says the magic word, s/he will start a stopwatch and pass Chuck (the chicken) to one student. That student will walk to another student, hand over Chuck to that student, and sit in that student’s chair. Play continues. Each time a student gets the chicken, s/he walks to another student, hands over the chicken, and sits in the other student’s seat. Play continues until all of the students are sitting. The last student to be standing must bring Chuck to the leader, at which point the time is stopped and announced.
