This game doesn’t take much space, so it can be played indoors. If you think ahead and take the materials to camp with you, you can even play it under a fly on a rainy day.
The game involves keeping score, so if your Cub Scouts aren’t mature enough to handle individual competition, you might want to adjust the game. For example, if you have two sets of equipment, you could turn this into a relay.
You can use this for Bear Achievement 15: Games, Games, Games.
