Long rope. 2 leaders with strong arms, and some co-ordination!


Turn the rope, the scouts have to jump over it. Anyone that gets caught is out! We are going to use this as part of our Backwards Night programme- and get the scouts to jump 'backwards'. ie, the rope comes from behind.... we will be scoring each patrol on how many jumps they can do!
