If I'm repeating a question from several months ago, please
forgive me, but I think this request may not have been addressed
for a while.
I'm looking for something new & exciting in the way of games
and competitions for our Troop to do during meetings. Out-of-
doors campout activities would be great as well. We have
tried Woods Wisdom, appointed Scout "Gamemasters", put
an adult with them to help promote creativity, but we seem to
get stuck in the same old rut - "capture the flag", "granny" - a
stalking game, & "dodge ball". The Scouts view the "official"
Scout games (from Woods Wisdom) as "dumb" or old hat, and
no amount of persuasion seems to get us over the hump.
So here's the question: what are your favorite games and
competitions?? What has worked the best, what can they
do over & over again without getting tired of it?
