Cooperation. It can be tough to work together, especially in a group with too many leaders and not enough followers. Communication. There is a great deal of problem solving involved in this activity that must be talked through by the entire group. However, the paramount goal is Caring! They are to not leave anyone behind! They begin together, they finish together! Anything less than that is unacceptable!


Will depend upon your group and experiences. You should have a pretty good clue by now.

Spotting Concerns:

Watch out for bug spray around the fire! The fire is dangerous in and of itself, but many groups choose to deliberately make it as lethal as possible! If it’s unsafe, stop the activity! Have them be careful during the First Aid section as the “victims” can easily be injured by inappropriate care!
