STEALTH HIKE

Mission Details


STEALTH HIKE


This event is a test of the boys' ability to maintain silence, requiring them to work together as a team, and control their behavior.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

  • None.

    PHYSICAL ARRANGEMENTS
    This event takes place along a dark trail. Scouts are given the challenge to Move their patrol to another station down the trail without making any noise at all. They are told that enemy agents are patroling the area searching for them. Two staffers concealed along the trail will grade them. We used two way radios for the staff. The sound of the radio communications gave an added element of excitement. Scouts would hear the staff close by and freeze, then try to work their way down the trail extra quietly. The boys thought it was fun, it involves their imagination, and their is no equipment and minimum set up.



    SITUATION

    The Scouts are proceeding down the trail to this event and are met by the staffer who tells them to be quiet. There are enemy agents in the area searching for your patrol. You must get down the trail and to the next event without being detected. No sound, no lights. You must be stealth.

    The mission is to get to "point B", under the cover of darkness, without being seen or heard.

    They can't know you're there. If they see you, it is the end.


    ACTION

    For the Scouts, their main action is to sneak down the trail without being seen or heard. This could involve running, hiding, crawling, etc. They get to use their imaginations. The Scouts really got into this event and had fun with it.


    SCORING
    They are scored on how quietly they approached and how well they worked together. This is judged by different staffers placed along the trail.


    STAFF ACTIONS

    CHECK IN PATROLS
    EXPLAIN THE SITUATION

    Remember this, like all other events, is only 30 minutes. Keep your explanation brief. Tell them there may be several enemy agents looking for them. Impress the boys that their cooperation and their stealth is chiefly what they will be graded upon.

    ISSUE EQUIPMENT
    None to issue.

    KEEP THEM MOVING
    The events go fast and there is little time.

    Record the scores.


    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE requires approximately 30 staff members.

    Events will conclude by 1:30am. Patrol Leaders will turn in their Patrol's computer disk before returning to their campsite. All Scouts/Webelos should be in their campsites and quiet by 2:00am.


    SCORING PATROLS

    Patrols will be given a computer disk. Scores will be written in a square on the disk. Each event will grade on a possible total of 10 points.

    Each event will have a 2 letter code. For the score, write the two letter code, followed by a score from 0 to 10.

    For example: SH9

    that would mean 9 points from Stealth Hike.
