Selection of prizes with a couple highly valued (like compass or pocketknife)
Preparation:
Gather other volunteers to check off completed tasks and hand out rewards, especially for tasks requiring teams and equipment.
Notes:
This scheme of collecting items based on performing tasks can turn a normal skills review meeting into a fun activity. Use it for any theme of tasks you need, such as pioneering, first aid, cooking, ...
Give each scout a list of tasks and rewards.
Scouts can do any of the tasks they want, but only one time to receive their reward.
Have some tasks that require more than one scout and make sure the reward is divisible by the number of scouts.
Have some tasks that require materials which need to be rented. You may want to have a deposit for rented equipment to ensure it is returned promptly.

At the end of the designated time, auction off the prizes to the highest bidders. Buddies or patrols can combine gold.
