One ongoing evening activity would be to take rocks (largish-sized ones)
and paint them gold, stating that they're broken chucks of gold bullion
that got damaged from cannon balls during a ship takeover. Scatter them
around the area (we have an extremely large BSA camp), and let each
Cub find them at their convenience. For every 10 that they find, they
can turn them into the Trading Post and get "something" -- we gave away
soda, but that was okayed by the leaders before they came (camp # = 175)
and it was during the daytime. You might be able to give away beads,
plastic bear claws, feathers, etc.
Also, as a game, give each group a Scavenger Treasure Hunt, and color
code the group's notes. That way you can send them all diffferent
directions (have an adult Scouter at each station to make sure the
groups don't "borrow" another group's clue), yet use the same scavenger
