Compass Point Exchange   Compass Point Exchange Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
(optional) 8 staffs or straight poles
Preparation:
Lay staffs in a star shape radiating out from a center point, or draw lines in the dirt or with chalk. These are the N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW points of a compass. Mark one pointer as NORTH.
One scout stands at the end of each point, noticing his location.
A leader calls out two points, such as NorthWest and South. The two scouts at those points must immediately leave their spot and run around the outside of the circle of scouts to their new location.

A scout that does not move when he should or one that moves when he should not is out. The last two scouts win.

You can run 3, 4, or more compasses at once, having one or two patrol members from each patrol on each compass. The last two scouts on a compass get points for their patrol.
