Depending on the level of disability why not try;
1/ Wheelchair basketball or hockey (either put the walkers into wheelchairs or
handicap them in some way).
2/ Quarter ball (divide area into quarters and put one team in each sitting on
the floor, throw them a ball. One leader turns his/her back and blows a whistle
at irregular intervals, another leader is referee and awards a point _against_
the team that has the ball in its' quarter when the whistle is blown).
3/ Set up a night line and have a competition between teams led by sighted and
visually impaired scouts.
4/ Weight lifting and arm wrestling.
5/ An obstacle course with the more able bodied assisting, only when
necessary,to carry, push and lift.
6/ For a wide game try Bonnie Prince Charlie (or a cultural equivalent). One
team of cavaliers are given a 5 minute start to escape with BPC and hide him.
The other team (roundheads)have to find and capture BPC. Plenty of opportunity
for stalking and hiding skills, not to mention decoys.
