Police the Site Activity
couple bags of individually wrapped candies. Have 3 different colors - red, blue, green.
Use this activity to reinforce the skills needed in cleaning up a campsite.
For each patrol, mark off a large area of ground, maybe 30 by 50 feet. In each area, distribute 15 red candies, 3 blue candies, and 1 green candy.
The goal is for each patrol to police their area and recover all the candies in the shortest time.
You may set a time limit and determine the winner as the patrol that has collected the most in the time.
Red candy = 1 point
Blue candy = 3 points
Green candy = 5 points
The ground cover and how hard you hide the candies in different areas can give some patrols an advantage so be careful or use that to even out the chances for less experienced scouts.
Maybe have a special candy reward for the winners.
