Why yes, it is stolen from our normal Add an activity thing. Even more entertaining, I plan to take everything suggested here and put it over there later. Suggest away!

Simulation city game. Each wintercamper recieves an allotment of yogurt bucks to spend in the city. Every wintercamper must make up a job for themselves and perform the job for a fee (so like someone could shine shoes, someone could make portraits...ect..).

Gimme Paw!

Submitted by: Steve D. on Thursday, 02-Nov-00 21:00:22 EST
Skills required: Mental,Social
Difficulty: Average
Location: Unimportant
Timeframe: Unimportant
Work as: Teams
Equipment Needs: Light
Basics of the activity
Players are grouped into pairs by some criteria likely to generate people who don't know each other very well (youngest and first above median?); heaviest and lightest and then given a variety of tasks which require them to use both hands while only allowing them one hand each. Shoe tying (no teeth!), eating (have to pick proper foods) and such leap to mind.
Potential Variations
Alternately, rather than play on the paw/hand thing, we could assign them to pairs and then play something akin to the Newlywed Game only without so many whoopee! questions.
