Winter Survival Game
There are a few modifications to the game format here. Note that in each situation, each "numbered" girl has a specific role to play. I implemented this system to make sure that girls who may be a little less outgoing get a chance to participate in the group too. When the team reaches the end of the trail they must follow the instructions on the final card and remain where they are until the leaders come to inspect their work. Each team should be carrying, as a minimum, at least one first aid kit, at least one survival kit, waterproofed matches, at least one tarp, bedroll rope, mugs for each member of the team, cup-a-soup, and a flashlight.
Entrance to the Game
Welcome to the Winter Edition of the Survival Game! Are you ready? Follow the marked trail, stay together, and GOOD LUCK! (You're going to need it...)
Station One: No Way Across!
Well, snowshoeing seemed like a great idea but now you've come to a frozen river... and your campsite is on the other side! Girl #1 decides to start across the ice... when she's gone ten steps, a sharp CRACK is heard! The ice hasn't broken yet, but what do you do now? After you've rescued your team-mate, follow the trail onwards!
Station Two: Hard Work!
As you search for another way across the river, you end up trudging through waist deep snow. Even with snowshoes it's hard work just to move. Girl #3 complains about how hot it is and takes off her coat (weather permitting ONLY!!) The rest of the team loosens their coats etc. but does not remove any layers. Keep a-hiking....
Station Three: I'm Cold!
The wind is beginning to pick up now and it's started to snow. Girl #3 suddenly realizes she's cold and puts her coat back on. Meanwhile, Girl #5 has gotten her mitts and boots completely soaked. Her hands and feet are numb, and when you look at them, the skin is white and very cold. But you can't stop here... it's far too open and exposed to the wind! What should you do about Girl #5's hands and feet? ...Once you have treated this condition, move onwards...
Station Four: It's Getting Colder...
Although you've managed to warm up Girl #5, Girl #3 has begun to shiver uncontrollably. Her lips are turning blue and she's very tired. What is she suffering from? What can you do?
Station Five: A Nasty Fall...
As you continue to search for a sheltered place to make camp, Girl #2 catches her snowshoe on a hidden log and falls, breaking her right wrist and spraining her left ankle in the process. Looks like you'll have to camp here! Girl #4 - YOU'RE IN CHARGE!! What should you do first? Here are a few problems: Girl #3 has now stopped complaining of the cold... she's tired, confused and only wants to sleep. It's getting dark, and you have another injured person to care for. Remember the other members of your team may have good ideas; listen to them, but you must make the final decision!
STAY HERE UNTIL A LEADER COMES FOR YOU!! IF YOU GET REALLY COLD, HEAD BACK TO THE LODGE BUT LEAVE ANY SHELTERS YOU'VE BUILT ETC. FOR EVALUATION!!
