Arrow of Light Exercises
Outdoorsman # 11: Demonstrate setting up a tent or dining fly using two half hitches and a taut-line hitch. Show how to tie a square knot and explain how it is used.
Tent Exercise: Have boys take gear from above and use tarp, rope, and stakes to set up a temporary tent.
Firemans Carry Game:
Preparation: neckerchiefs; participants divided into 2 teams
2 teams — half the members of each team are firemen, the other half are victims and are laying on their backs.
On signal, the first fireman runs up to his victim, ties his wrists together with a neckerchief, and pulls him back to the starting line with the fireman’s drag. He touches off the next fireman, who then rescues his victim. First team to bring in all their victims wins.
- Start: It worked well.
- Stop: Nothing to stop. It went well. They loved the tent making.
- Continue: Continue as planned
