International Program Idea: Finland’s Fire Race

How do you assess bushcraft? The Scouts and Guide of Finland have a special game to assess fire lighting.

Each patrol has a fire drum, and equal fire lighting resources – paper, wood, matches, sand/water safety buckets. Place the fire drums in a line, with a safe distance between each one, and string a length of twine 1.5m above the fire barrels. The fastest patrol to build a fire will break the twine indicating a winner.

Got a great program idea from overseas? Let us know!
