Capture the Flag  Capture the Flag is a great game for a large group. Our Boy Scout troop plays it often as an interpatrol activity during meetings. Cub Scouts can play it also.

When the ceremony was over, the Boy Scouts organized a game of capture the flag, putting some Cub Scouts on each team. They used most of the park as their play area. It was legendary. :-)

Red Light Green Light  When working with Cub Scouts, remember KISMIF - Keep It Simple. Make It Fun.

It is simple and requires no preparation or materials. My Cub Scouts always enjoy these "classic" playground games.
