One of the fun evening activities the leaders provided for Alpha Troop at Summer Camp was aerial sock wrestling.
Two scouts would get into helmets and harnesses, and then stand up on milk crates so they were up off the ground. Once the scouts felt safe swinging in their harnesses, the crates were taken away, and they started the wrestling match… while dangling, swinging and spinning in the air!
The aim of the match is to get your opponent’s sock off. All the while of course, your opponent is trying to get your sock off. It makes for dramatic and exciting viewing and playing. We screamed and cheered for our patrol members, as they wrestled it out in mid-air, twisting and turning in all directions and dimensions!
