Long, Short, Round Relay   Long, Short, Round Relay Game   Scout Game

for each team:
- two tin cans
- one stick
- one ping pong ball
- one rock
Place one can from each team in a circle.
Place the stick, ball, and rock for each team in their can.
Place the other can for each team about 30 feet out from the circle.
Have members of a team sit in a line facing the inner circle between their inner can and outer can.
Give each team member a number, from #1 in the center to the last number for the last member.
The game leader stands in the center of the circle.
He makes a sign for Long, Short, or Round and calls out a number.
The scout on each team whose number he calls races to the can, retrieves the appropriate item, and takes it to the other can. He then returns to his position.
The first one back to his spot earns one point for his team.
As the game progresses, everyone needs to remember in which can the long, short, and round items are so they run to the correct can to retrieve it.

If you don't have enough space, the relay lines can be in parallel instead of a circle, but this layout lets everyone see all the other teams and the game leader more easily.

The game leader can have whatever signs he wants for long, short, and round and you could even use any three distinct items or even more items.
