This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
digital camera or video camera for each team.
stuffed or plastic animal mascot for each team.
adult driver for each team.
Arrange a driver for each team. Explain their role for the event.
This is sort of a scavenger hunt and can be a fun alternative to a normal meeting, taking about 1 or 1.5 hours.

Get a mascot for each team - for example a stuffed panther or plastic alligator.
Either deliver these mascots to various adult leader homes or bring them to the event. When the event starts, each team is either given their mascot or the address of where they can pick up their mascot.

Explain that each team will take their mascot on a joy-ride around the community, accumulating points by having it participate in fun activities. Each activity needs to be recorded for lasting memories (and awarding points).

Announce which team is with each driver. Explain the rules:

Hand out a list of activities that their mascot would love to take part in:

Have each activity worth some number of points, either randomly assigned without the players knowing until the event is finished, or set and published beforehand.

When teams return, have impartial judges review their photos or video, award points, and then determine a winner.
