    FANTASTIC game where there is tons of movement! Highly suggest this game, especially if you are creative with the boundaries:

    – the walls can be tables, mats, cones with flagging tape on them, caution tape, etc!
    – you can play without the walls too! Younger students love a large space
    – you can use multiple Ga-Ga balls at the same time! Soft yarn balls are awesome, put in about 6-10 and your students will be sweating!

    Gaga is such a great game. Many camps have specifically built structures just for this game and it is worth it weight in gold. Even schools groups who come to visit or stay at camp ask for the design plans for permanent Gaga structures, so they can build it back at school.

    Once the kids know the rules, they self manage really well and most of the time you know where they are. Always good to have an adult keeping an eye out on the activity and even better Gaga on camp is such a great physical activity and engaging activity that they forget about devices and screens.
