There have been some interesting posts on this subject, with the
latest I have read being about a survival 'stunt' camp. My District
Commissionaer related one to me that he was involved with some years
ago. The Scouts were told a similar story, that they were going on a
hike and camp, but when they arrived at the startoff, all sleeping
bags, tents etc were removed from their packs for separate
transport... or something like that.
Similar story as previously posted, except these enterprising leaders
had prepared with taped radio broadcasts about these 'lost scouts'.
Periodically they would say, I wonder if there is any more news on the
radio? .. then play some of the tape. After a bit of music, sure
enough, there was a news flash about these scouts lost in the
Really got the Scouts in!
