ACTIVITIES  Order of Events:  Welcome Rules explanation   6 tribes, tribes chosen randomly, please don't get upset if you don't have people who you want on your tribe, object is to have fun. We had kids of all ages so I ended up choosing tribes beforehand to make it even.  I put all of the buffs in paper bags so they had a surprise. One winning team.  Tribes must complete challenges for rewards.  There are reward and immunity challenges.  Tribes that win immunity challenge cannot be voted for at tribal council. All tribes have a colour.  Tribes will then choose team name from a list of names and design a tribal flag. I used the following names and made up what it meant if it didn't have a real meaning or name. I did this so I could remember the colours and team names easily as they started with the same letter.  Ogakor  orange crocodile Basiki  blue air Yaxha  yellow  water Rotu  red  strong Poga Poga  purple fast Gatji  green  forest  Each tribe will build a shelter on their island.  After each tribal council teams are allowed to mingle with other guests.
