Lava Walkers Activity
This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
three 8 foot poles per patrol
three 8 foot ropes per patrol
four 40 foot ropes per patrol
bag of treats per patrol
Draw a lava field on the ground, about 15-20 feet across.
Goal: Cross the lava field to retrieve the reward.
Each patrol needs to get one scout across the lava field to get the reward and bring it back.
The ends of each pole are coated in a heat-resistant chemical so they are lava-proof. If anything else comes in contact with the lava, it is disintegrated.
The team can build an A-frame walker with lashings. Attach guide lines to the top and have a scout stand on the cross piece. By tilting the walker from side to side, he can walk across the lava.
