Ultimate Keep Away

Split campers into even teams. It goes by the same basic principle as the traditional keep away game, but it’s so much better. Two teams, with each team having an identifying tag, like a colored bandana. Throw in a few balls, more balls with more campers. The object is to keep the balls moving among your teammates and not get tagged. If you get tagged with a ball in hand by a person on the other team, then you go to jail, so you have to keep throwing it to your fellow teammates as quickly as you can. The ball keeps moving, kids keep going to jail, and ever so often, you can call “jail break!” to let the game keep going forever or stop after a time limit.
