Bowline Flood Rescue   Bowline Flood Rescue Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
30 foot rope per team
Notes:
knot tying speed
Your patrol was camping on a hill when a flood rolled in overnight. You are now stranded on a small island and none of you can swim. Except your fearless patrol leader!

Have each patrol huddle together. Draw a circle around them to represent the island.
Draw a line 20 feet away that is the shore and safety. This is the area over which the patrol must be rescued.

Give each patrol leader a rope.
On the signal, each patrol leader runs to the safe shore and throws the rope back to his patrol.
One player ties a bowline around himself and is pulled across the flood.
Once safe, he unties his knot, and rescues the next player.
