Human Spring   Human Spring Activity   Scout Activity

Trust building, cooperative activity
Pair up with similarly sized scouts together.

Each pair faces each other about two feet apart, with hands up, palms forward, feet shoulder width apart.

The two scouts keep their bodies rigid and lean toward each other. Catch yourself by placing your palms against your partner's and pushing yourself back to an upright position.

Once trust is in place and the pair is successful, have each pair take a small step apart. Continue springing against each other and stepping apart until they can go no further.

As a competition, the team that has successfully sprung with the furthest distance between their feet, wins. But, this gives a big advantage to taller people.

As a cooperative activity, add up everyone's distances for a grand total. Then, switch partners and see if a new record can be set.
