First Aid Baseball Game

This is a game we played during our Scoutmaster training.  This is a fun way to review first aid skills with Scouts BSA. There are a lot of questions included in the file. Just remove the questions for anything you haven’t covered yet.

How to Play First Aid Baseball


  • First Aid Baseball Question Cards – Print these
  • Something to put on the floor to represent home plate and three bases – could be as simple as pieces of paper labeled “Home”, “1st”, “2nd”, and “3rd”
  • A pencil and a piece of paper to keep score


  • Two teams – these could be two patrols or one patrol divided in two. The number of people on each team should be approximately equal.
  • The umpire – Troop Instructor, Senior Patrol Leader, Scoutmaster, or somebody neutral like that
  • The scorekeeper


  1. Line up one team (patrol) behind the home plate. The first person in line is the batter.
  2. Have the batter randomly choose one of the cards.
  3. The umpire asks the question on the card.
  4. The batter answers the question, without help from his teammates.
  5. The umpire reads the answer on the card so both teams know what the correct answer is.
  6. The umpire decides if the question has been answered correctly or not. He can ask for clarification if he wants to. All decisions of the umpire are final. Some of the questions have multiple part answers. The umpire can decide to let the runner advance a base or two if he gets part of the answer.
  7. If the batter answered correctly, he advances the number of bases indicated by the umpire. If he answered incorrectly, the scorekeeper records an out for his team and the batter returns to the end of the line.
  8. The next person in line is the batter and steps 2 to 6 are repeated. If the batter answers correctly and there is somebody on base ahead of him, everyone on base advances the number of bases indicated on the card.
  9. When a base runner gets to home plate, the scorekeeper records a run for that team and the base runner returns to the end of his team’s line.
  10. When a team has three outs, then the other team “bats”.
  11. Play two or three innings, making sure each team bats during each inning played.
  12. The team with the most runs at the end wins.

More Games for Scouts

Games promote team building, cooperation, and friendly competition. Active games also promote the BSA aim of personal fitness.

Orienteering Scavenger Hunt

Orienteering Scavenger Hunt

This requires some setup, but it is a fun way to introduce Webelos and Scouts BSA to orienteering. You can just set up one course and have them all do it together, or you can set up two or three courses and split them into groups. The courses don’t have to be long. Three points make a fine course. If you have different teams, use different colors of paper to designate which clues are for which teams.

Citizenship Football

Citizenship Football is a fun way to help Webelos and Scouts BSA work on citizenship requirements.

Tent Pitching Competition (Standard or Blindfolded)

Tent pitching competitions are an inter-patrol activity staple. To make it a blindfolded tent pitching contest, just add blindfolds. If you want, let one team member keep his vision, but he can only participate by giving verbal instructions to the others. This makes a good communications exercise also.

    I printed up one set of cards in white and one set in multiple colors. I gave each team or boy one set of the colored cards. Each boy had a partial set in his color. I gave them time to look over their set of cards and answers as a team. One team came up to bat and a second team gave him his question. If he answered it correctly, the opposing team could challenge the play by picking a card from the white set of cards, made up of all the questions. If they answered the question on the white set correctly, they blocked the play. The team up to bat got an out. If they did not answer correctly, the team at bat got to run the play on the card they answered correctly. Three outs for the team at bat, and the team to his right was up next. We rotated around the table until all teams got a chance to bat, and a chance to play in the field. Answers were timed to 60 seconds to keep the game moving. Team with the most home runs won. I made a baseball diamond on a piece of card stock, and players in all the team colors (small squares). You could even determine who in the field had to answer the question to block. by the position they took with their player. Course this only works if their are several scouts on the same team. If you are playing your own set of cards, when your in the field, you answer the challenge. The game bacame faster paced and we were able to keep more of the group
    actively involved! Thanks for the wonderful idea! It was lots of fun. Hope you like my twist on the original. (Lisa)

    This is awesome! Do you happen to have a game on Emergency Prepardedness that is set up the same way? If so, could you email it to me? I am trying to prepare games for my boys for the Halloween party in 2 weeks.
