Supplies...

    4 old camp mattresses

    (Optional) Kiddie Pool and Hose

Lights, Camera, Action!

This activity is super simple and leads to some of the best photos at camp and kids can't get enough. Put the mattresses in a pile two wide and at least 2 or 3 tall. and create a line 20 or so feet away, enough space that each camper can get to a full sprint before the mattress pile. Let campers yell, scream, and get excited to sprint and belly flop on to the mattresses one at a time. On hot days add a kiddie pool to cool campers down (best with waterproof mattresses).
