This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
SELLING price list
BUYING price list
colored beads
various items for manufacturing tasks
this can be a good activity to review skills or repair equipment
Each patrol is given 10 black beads and 2 blue beads.
Each patrol checks out the Buying and Selling price lists to figure out what article they want to manufacture.
Manufactured articles that you buy back should result in a profit, as long as they use items efficiently. But, if they waste 10 matches lighting a fire, there goes their profit, up in smoke.

Some examples:

Sample BUYING price list:

Sample SELLING price list:

Sample Values of Beads:

Purchasing the items needed to manufacture an article reduces the patrol's funds. When they successfully sell back their article, they hopefully make a profit.
More complicated tasks should be worth more.

You may rule that each patrol can only make one of a specific article, or allow mass production of the same thing many times.
If you are cleaning/repairing equipment, then a quality check should be included before payment is made.
Use colored paper, monopoly money, or any other currency you want if you have no beads.
You could have a trading post where patrols can exchange their currency for items - supplies, candy, toys.
