Capture the Fort Game
This Game is meant for Boy Scouts, Webelos scouts.
soccer ball or NERF ball
At least 7 scouts per team.
One team stands in a circle facing outward. Each scout places his left hand on the right shoulder of his neighbor and must keep it there. The team leader stands in the center of the circle. This is the fort.
The other team spreads out outside the fort. These are the attackers.
The soccer ball is a bomb. The leader drops the bomb to the attackers. They try to kick the bomb through the holes in the fort wall - between legs or between bodies. Or, they can kick it over the top of the wall.
If the bomb touches the ground inside the fort, it explodes. The team leader in the fort can catch the bomb and throw it back before it touches the ground. The walls can use their bodies or right hand to deflect the bomb.
Either switch sides after each explosion or after a set time limit.
