Flame Battlers

Just like “Capture The Flag” except instead of flags you use bonfires. Each team is given a large garbage can full of water balloons to be used to put out the other team’s fire. The first team to completely douse the other teams fire wins. You will need to have adult leaders manning the fires and they are allowed to try and rebuild the fire after an attack. If you get caught on your opponent’s side you must give over your water balloons (they usually give them over from a distance before they are caught, by throwing them at the pursuant). We always play it with a jail and the captives can be set free if one of the free members on their team touches them.
[Ed. Note: Needless to say, but I’ll say it anyway, fire is involved so be very, VERY careful. As always, know your group and what they can handle.]
