Knight Errantry   Knight Errantry Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
For each scout: 
work gloves 
work pants 
full water bottle
Preparation:
Scouts should be told to bring work gloves to the meeting place and wear work pants. 
The meeting place should be a local park in a neighborhood.
Notes:
A 'Knight Errant' was a knight that wandered the land searching for adventures. 
This activity is a good way to get scouts out into the community. This activity should be done on a Saturday in spring for best success rates.
Scouts are sent out in pairs, threes, or patrols. Their goal is to perform as many Good Deeds as they can for neighbors in the community. 
The scouts go door-to-door asking the resident if they have any odd jobs needing done outside - no indoor jobs. They should make sure the resident understands they would like to do the good deed for free with no obligation. 
At the end of the allotted time - 2 hours is good - all scouts should return to the assembly area. 
 
When all scouts have returned, break out a substantial snack or have volunteers prepare a BarBQue in the park while they were gone.  
After grace, while the scouts are eating, have each patrol leader stand up and report on the Good Deeds they accomplished.
