Each patrol has a beach ball that they hit into the air as many times as they can without it touching the ground.
No one may hit the ball twice in a row.
Count one point per hit and try for new records. Optional Competition
- Use a different colored ball per patrol and allow scouts to bat opposing balls out of the way. No physical contact to inhibit scouts from reaching their ball.
- As a teamwork exercise, have the entire troop keep one ball in the air and set a troop record.
- With a stopwatch, see how long all the patrol balls can be kept in the air - start over when one touches the ground.
