Nitro Swing Activity
This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
8 foot or higher rope swing
can of water
Four 4 foot dowels or sticks
6 tennis ball cans or wooden blocks about that height
Set up 3 cans with 2 dowels resting on top of them to make a 8 foot trip wire about 5 feet from the swing rope. Make another trip wire opposite this one.
It only takes 3 scouts to accomplish the task.
: Transport a can of highly volatile nitro across the quicksand. Rules
- Must use the swing to cross the quicksand.
- Swing rope must be acquired by the patrol using only what they have with them.
- If the tripwire is knocked down or ground is touched between tripwires, that scout gets off, leaves the rope hanging straight down, and returns to the beginning.
- If even one drop of nitro is lost, the patrol must start over.
: To complete the task, all patrol members must cross the quicksand.
