What is Pursuit Challenge 2013:
This event combines several fun challenges with traversing a cross-country course of about 2.5 miles. Every year the challenges are different. The Pursuit Challenge will always include physical and intellectual challenges, & a service challenge. There will be an easier Ascent Level and a more difficult Summit Level version of each challenge. Some have described Pursuit Challenge as a Junior/Family-friendly “Mudder” (without the mud… unless it rains); referring to the popular Mud-Runs that are held.
Past Pursuit Challenges include:
- Walking backwards on a balance beam
- Throwing at a target
- Chin-ups or push-ups
- Juggling a soccer ball or shooting baskets
- Solving a doublet word puzzle
- Completing a puzzle and then solving the First Aid scenario on the back
- Stacking empty boxes as tall as possible
- Untangling a rope maze
- Walking on stilts or using “team skis”
- Memory game
- Trivia questions
- Bouncing a ping-pong ball consecutively
- Hammering nails or running a wheel-barrow
This serves as our BSA Troop 601 Scout Camp fundraiser.
