Get Active: Capture the Flag

A unique way to get fit, have fun, and socially engage safely

Check out Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation staff's unique way to get fit, have fun, and socially engage safely. This classic outdoor game for kids requires six or more people and flags.

Materials Needed:

  • Open Field
  • Flag or plastic Shopping Bags

Now that you have all your materials ready, let's get started.

Step 1: Split the players into two teams, and have each place a flag near the back of their court.
Step 2: The object of the game: Players must dash into the opposing team's court and steal their flag.
Step 3: A player becomes "out" if he gets tagged, and he wins the game if he successfully captures the flag.
