Scout Survival Skills Activity Sheets
We help you by providing Scout Survival Skills Activity Sheets. You will want to see the guidance for completing the badge work, see below –
Show that you know:
basic knife or multi-tool skills, including safety and sharpening
first aid treatment you may need to use while on a survival event, considering you may have limited resources available
how to construct different kinds of shelter
how to build a fire and use basic lighting techniques. You should not use man-made materials such as paper or firelighters.
the various burning qualities of different woods
how to maintain hygiene in a survival situation
the correct use of international distress signals, using a whistle, torch, mirror or markers
some basic actions to take while waiting rescue that will both keep you (and your group) safe and will assist your rescuers in locating you.
Put together a personal survival kit. Or buy one from our store.
With a group of at least three Scouts, take part in a survival exercise. It should last about 24 hours and the group should:
construct a shelter of natural or salvaged materials and sleep in it
prepare a meal using raw ingredients that could have been found or caught
cook all meals over an open fire
cook without utensils, although you may use a knife.
