Fun Fact of the Day


Most climbers attempt Everest during April and May.

Today’s Activity: Base Race

  • Mark the boundaries of the area with the hula hoops; 1 hoop in each corner of the gym, and 1 hula hoop in between the 2 corners on the longest side of the gym.
  • Split the class up so that each hoop has an even number of people.
  • The tagger must begin by standing in the center circle of the gym.
  • The person designating as the tagger yells “Get to Base Camp!”  Once this is said, everyone must run to a different hoop.
  • If someone is caught, they become a tagger along with the previous tagger(s).
  • The game ends when everyone is caught.

*This game replicates the different base camps spread throughout different elevations of Mount Everest, which provide shelter and warmth and a place to eat for the climbers.
