Bomb Squad   Bomb Squad Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
a trashcan or large bucket (bomb disposal unit).
a large tin can or water jug (bomb) with 4 dots painted on it or 4 short ropes tied to it.
Place the bomb disposal unit about 30 feet or so away from the bomb.
Players will need to problem solve and figure out how to hold onto the bomb and not touch the ground so the bomb can be moved.

A mad bomber has placed a bomb by the flag pole and your team is the bomb squad called in to dispose of it.
The bomb has 5 triggers:
If the bomb is lifted from the ground, it will explode.
If the 4 side triggers are held all at the same time, then the bomb can be safely lifted.
If someone holds a trigger and touches the ground, the bomb will short out and explode.

Your bomb squad must deposit the bomb safely inside the bomb disposal unit so it can be detonated.
