Tightrope Walk Activity
This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
20foot length of heavy rope, tied into a circle.
1 staff or broomstick.
This is a team building, trust building activity.
If patrols are too small, combine two of them into a single group.
Tie the rope into a circle so all scouts can hold it with about 18 inches between each scout. A smaller circle for a smaller patrol.
Lay circle of rope on the ground.
Patrol stands around rope and picks it up.
All scouts hold onto the rope with both hands and lean outward as far as they can, making the rope as tight as possible.
One scout picks up the staff to use for support on the ground as needed. He steps up onto the rope and walks around the circle back to his starting spot.
Let each scout that wants to, have a try at walking the tight rope.
