Taking aim and concentrating to get their sticks to hit the buffalo.
rmnp#9
Part of the challenge is to try and get the stick through the hula hoop.
rmnp#26
Part of the challenge was learning to work together as a team to get the hula hoop from the first person to the back person without using your hands.
rmnp#25
With practice and becoming in sync with each other, they were able to get the hula hoop from the front to the back in record time.
rmnp#29
Bryan’s activity was to make it across the swamp with three rafts, and all your people to follow close behind without falling into the water. This was a challenging activity that required lots of clear communication and working together as a team.

Jack and Nick took the lead, and they were able to get the rafts a good jumping distance apart.

“Careful everyone!” “Watch out for the alligators!”
rmnp#23
Great teamwork! Everyone made it across.
