Water Bottle Relay Race a Shoe Game


I volunteered at Drake’s 11 Year Old Scout Camp today and boy was it so much fun.  I was only there a few hours but my favorite part of Scout Camp was a game they called the “water bottle game”.  It was hysterical!

Water Bottle Relay Race with Shoe

Drake was on the red and green team.  They lined up with their shoe in one hand anxiously awaiting their number to be called out.  Drake was assigned #11.

#11 is called and Drake darts as fast as he can to the chair.  Hops on and continues to throw his shoe at the water bottle before his opponent knocks it down first.

When everyone has a turn, the score is announced, and celebrating erupts.  It was awesome.  The boys LOVED it.

I was also impressed with the PVC team flags and their holders.  Genius.
