The Challenges of the Gladiator
Have you ever watched movies or read books based on the gladiator warriors of the ancient Roman Empire? If so, then you might have a fairly good idea of what is in store for you at the Gladiator’s Challenge Camporee. If not, then allow me to enlighten you on what it is to be a gladiator. In ancient Rome, contestants would compete in combat inside large arenas called coliseums. These contestants were called gladiators, and were usually men of great skill and strength. These gladiatorial competitions were not only physical challenges, but battles of will and sheer determination. Competitions would normally last until only one gladiator or group of gladiators remained. The victor or victors would then compete in numerous other competitions, becoming more skilled and knowledgeable with each consecutive battle. Beloved by the masses, Roman gladiators were the working class heroes of antiquity. The victorious gladiators would gain wealth and glory for their efforts, and a lucky few were even granted ‘”a wooden sword” and along with it, their freedom.
The Gladiator’s Challenge will offer the same opportunities for competition and perhaps even victory to a chosen few. However, unlike the gladiatorial competitions of ancient Rome, all our gladiators, win or lose will be able to compete in all the competitions. Therefore, there will be many opportunities for each gladiator or group of gladiators to be victorious throughout the day.
The competitions will test many different areas, including physical fitness, sportsmanship, Scout skills, team work, first aid, creativity, and each gladiator’s determination to succeed.
How about it? Does the Gladiator’s Challenge sound like fun? Do you have what it takes to face other gladiators in friendly competition? Do you have the sheer determination and prowess to overcome the Gladiator’s Challenge?
