Preparation

The success of this type of game depends upon providing each Patrol with a reasonably accurate large scale map which must be made in advance. On the maps mark the location of an imaginary first aid supply station, a food store and the wrecked plane. Complete your preparations by making up an exciting realistic story of the wrecked plane. Read or tell the story at the Troop Meeting preceding the hunt.

 

The Game

Give each Patrol Leader a map, and let him assemble his men to study the map. Assign one half to stop at the first aid station to get (write down) the equipment they think they will need, while the other half stops at the store to get food. Start Patrols at five minute intervals. Have the Patrol that fords the plane yell out to the others who run to the spot. When all players arrive give each Patrol a job such as treat injured passengers, transport the injured, signal messages, cook food, etc.

 

Tip

Your Scouts will enjoy this game more if one Patrol is declared a winner, appoint judges and devise a point scoring system.
