Fire Transfer Camping Activity
|This Activity is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Required:||3 staffs, broomsticks, or sticks|
2 3foot ropes
2 feet of twine
3 wooden matches
|Preparation:||Put all materials except one candle at the starting line.|
Place the candle as far away from the starting line as the 3 staffs will reach when lashed together.
Light this candle.
Stand the unlit candle up by the starting line - this candle can not be moved.
|Notes:||This can be a good teamwork activity or you may use it as a competition.|
|There is fire on the other side of a river. The group needs to transfer that fire to their side of the river.|
The team must transfer the flame from the lit candle to their unlit candle.
They can not cross the line.
They should lash the 3 staffs together using the rope and then tie a match to the end with the twine.
