This Activity is meant for older campers.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.

Required:a trashcan or large bucket (bomb disposal unit).
a large tin can or water jug (bomb) with 4 dots painted on it or 4 short ropes tied to it.
Preparation:Place the bomb disposal unit about 30 feet or so away from the bomb.
Notes:Players will need to problem solve and figure out how to hold onto the bomb and not touch the ground so the bomb can be moved.


A mad bomber has placed a bomb by the flag pole and your team is the bomb squad called in to dispose of it.
The bomb has 5 triggers:
  • one trigger on the bottom.
  • 4 triggers on the sides.

If the bomb is lifted from the ground, it will explode.
If the 4 side triggers are held all at the same time, then the bomb can be safely lifted.
If someone holds a trigger and touches the ground, the bomb will short out and explode.

Your bomb squad must deposit the bomb safely inside the bomb disposal unit so it can be detonated.
