Working with a couple guys to put together a ManCamp weekend at Henry Horton State Park, for the guys at our church. Probably looking at 30 guys, not sure since this is the first event.

Would like to do something that would create a little competition and push their abilities a bit. I'm considering doing something like we did back in scouts where your team is given a few materials and have to build a fire, cook and eat an egg in a certain time frame.

Any ideas that would be allowed on a state park field would be appreciated!

Folding laundry, better yet, see who can fold a fitted sheet, then take away his man-card. :)

You could have a chipping contest at the driving range. Get a few hula hoops and put them at different yardages and give them points for the different yardages. Only give them, say 1 bucket of balls each. More points for the furthest targets. Less for the closest, so there would be some strategy involved. You could also have a putting contest.

if your going to do the egg thing,,,,
give time 2 matches, raw egg, paper cup, and enough water to fill the cup, no other utensils, tell them to cook the egg.

trick as we did in the scouts,,,,,put egg in cup, fill with water
sit cup on the fire they build, cup will burn down to water and stop, egg will boil, just gotta make sure you keep water in the cup

My brother in law did the manly version of a "31 party" that the women do. It was pretty cool but one of the games we played was called hammerschlagen...obviously it's a german game. You take a round piece of wood and start a long nail into it all the way around. Then you have a hammer with some kind of a thin wedge on one end...dont use the blunt end. You take turns going around and each person gets one hit. If you bend it sideways you have to use your next turn to straighten up. The first person to drive their nail all the way in flush wins the game. It was really alot of fun. We played it 4 or 5 times and oddly enough...the more beer consumed the better we got.
