Camp Sunny Patch honor counselor Adrienne puts a cool twist on our Session 9 activity, Olympic Torch Game!
Hi! I’m Adrienne from The Iowa Farmer’s Wife. I don’t know about you, but we are super excited about the Olympics at our house! We had a blast giving Amy’s own creative Summer Olympic Torch Game from Camp Sunny Patch Session 9 a little flare of our own! Download the original version here.

When creating the obstacle course, I tried to have as many events represented as possible, but ended up with a lot of Track & Field events! My daughter ran outside with the torch to the start line and got ready to go. Since she was the only child participating (our 9-month-old wasn’t interested!) she didn’t pass the torch, but held it proudly during our medal ceremony.
Our events included: stepping over hurdles (Track & Field), crawling through a tunnel, kicking a soccer ball into a bucket (Soccer), throwing water balloons (shot put) into a hula hoop (Track & Field), throwing a discus into a hula hoop (Track & Field), riding a tractor through the yard (Cycling), doing a somersault on a yoga mat (Gymnastics), picking up a “baton” and running to the finish line (Track & Field). She wore a tennis outfit to represent Tennis.
My daughter had so much fun that she went through the obstacle course several times before stopping to throw all the water balloons into the hula hoop. The Farmer and I even got in on the action and went through the course, too!
