Excavating the Challenge

Leader

We are met on this site to dig up a camp challenge that was buried by our fellow campers last year. The challenge we are about to excavate was buried to challenge us to have a meaningful camping experience. As the challenge is read let each of us listen carefully and apply what is written to our camping program that lies ahead. You may dig up the challenge now.

The challenge is then read.

Leader

Our challenge has been laid before us by the ___ year campers. Let us each do our part to help meet these challenges and carry forth the banner of a successful camping program. Let us also be thinking of challenges we would like to leave for next year's camp. I now declare this special ceremony closed and dismiss you for the next part of our camping program.
