Campsite Rescue   Campsite Rescue Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
3 adult volunteers
miscellaneous camp items
The 3 adults set up a campsite or define a smaller part of the troop campsite as the 'stage'.
Set 3 place settings on the table and any other indications that there are 3 people here.
Take the troop out on a hike or other activity while the volunteers get set up. They will need about 10 minutes.

Announce to the senior patrol leader that you heard gunshots in the direction of the campsite and he should organize his patrol or troop to investigate and act as they think best when they find out what has happened.

The adults should take on these 3 roles, or others as their imaginations take them:

When the scouts arrive, they should figure out what has happened, apply first aid, and secure the area.

The conscious adult may tell them that they were attacked by marauders or bears or whatever.

There is a good chance the 3rd man in the woods will not be noticed without someone noticing that there are 3 place settings.

You might have individual patrols go through the exercise at 15 minute intervals while the rest of the troop is doing another activity.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
