Bomb Squad Camping Activity
|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.
