One day at Camp Gilgal we went to the water slide. Once were done with the exciting slide, we went down to the Gaga Ball pit. We gathered people to play.

Some of the basic rules of Gaga Ball are that the ball can’t touch from your knees down, that you have the hit the ball with a closed fist, and you can’t hit it outside of the pit. It got really intense really fast. I asked Macaroni if she had won any rounds. She said, “I won two rounds in a row.”

However, a lot of people accidentally got hurt by scraping their hands and feet on the ground when hitting the ball. All the people who got hurt said they still had fun. It was my first time playing Gaga Ball and I hope to get to play it at teen camp next year.
