A fun blindfolded team race for an outing or a camp, where teams
"race" across a course guided by sighted team leaders.
Enough blindfolds for at least four teams.
Two long lengths of rope.
A number of small prizes.
Rope guidelines laid out at the start and finish of the course.
Teams of six or more people are chosen and all but one from each team
are blindfolded. The blindfolded teams are then lined up at the
start line and each team forms a tight group by holding onto each
other. Each team has a sighted team leader and these are are
positioned opposite their team at the finish line. On a shout
of "Go" each team must "race" to the finish line guided by shouted
directions from their leader.
A second race would be to blindfold the team leaders, and have the
balance of the teams shout instructions to guide their leader to
the finish line!
Chaos will reign, but the race is exciting for all! Repeat the
race until all teams have had a chance and then run heats to
determine an overall winner. Award prizes as deserved
including a consolation prize for the slowest or most fumbling
team! Have lots of fun!
