"Get the group to interact together and do some cooperative activities."
[How well were they met?]
"Extremely well! All the teens had a great time!!"
Kim Saraiva, Activity Director, Brockton Boys & Girls Club, Brockton MA
an energetic event for teens, young adults, & other active people
Although we won't be running all
ime, and although those who prefer to be more sedentary can also enjoy it, this is a very active event especially popular with college students, teens, and older elementary-age children with lots of energy to spare. It's an hour of active, non-sports, everybody-wins, strategy, field games that challenge everyone in the group no matter what their skill levels.
When a breather is needed, we'll sit
down for a few Minute Mysteries
: brain games that test your powers of deduction and reasoning, and force you to question your assumptions! But most of the time, it's just go, go, go, go go, go, GO!
It takes team work for everyone to catch the runner in Line Cross, and it certainly takes full attention for one lone individual to hold everyone at bay in Smaug's Jewels. It's 1-on-1, competitive running in Elbow Tag, and everybody working together to get untangled in Knots.
They'll enjoy a wide variety of tag games, too: from Cross Tag where you actually force "It" to chase you, to the ever-growing Blob, to the sheer chaos of Everybody's It and Rock/Paper/Scissors Tag.
There's also quite a number of unusual team strategy games: British Bulldog and the ever popular Go! are physical contact games. Believe it or not, breathe control is paramount in Pina and Dho-Dho-Dho. The skill to move quietly is rewarded in Indian Stick, and to move without drawing attention to yourself in the fan favorite May I Borrow Your Cat? Both acting and a split second of panic are featured in both Lemonade and in Elves, Giants, & Wizards.
All in all, it's a solid hour of sheer excitement, a total blast, and loads of FUN!
YOU WILL BE 100% SATISFIED AND
YOUR GROUP WILL HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF FUN...
