Wild West Wide Game bases - HELP!


Ranger Guider, Assistant Guide Guider
I'm off to District camp soon. It has a Wild West theme and each unit has to think of a base for the Wide Game.
I'm totally stuck! Can anybody suggest anything? It has to be suitable for Rainbows, Brownies and Guides.

Many thanks in advance!

35 years ago we made axes with sticks and thick cardboard blades, lashed the axehaed onto the stick with rope and tied knots, not sure I would do it today
