The idea for this activity came from a project by the summer 2016 camp counsellors at Bois-Joli day camp.

Description and organisation

Divide the players into 2 teams on opposite sides of the playing area. The counsellors appoint 1 Jedi on each team.

The clones (the other players) throw the balls at the opposing team.

If a player drops a ball, they go to space jail (an area inside the playing field) and roll a die to see how many sit-ups they must do to get out. The Jedi gets a lightsaber (pool noodle), which they use to deflect incoming balls. If a Jedi is hit by a ball, their team loses.
