to be last one


Two people are chosen to be the octopuses. The stand in the middle of the field. All the campers are one one side. The counselor in charge calls octopus and the campers all run from one side to the other trying not to get caught by the octopus. If they are caught they must sit down and become seaweed, meaning they can tag someone if they run by them, but they cannot move from where they are sitting, they can tag by using their hands. The last person who isn't caught is the winner.
