Looking for Bring-a-Friend adventure ideas?
Your Bring-a-Friend should show your guests how we develop well-rounded youth with a youth-led program in the outdoors.
Below you will find examples of events that will show visitors what the great adventure of Scouting is all about.
Don’t forget to go through the Plan phase of the trail cards with your Section before the event.
As a Lodge, come up with an obstacle course that all the Beaver Scouts in the Colony can have a go at. The obstacle course should be done in pairs. Each pair needs to make it through the obstacle course while keeping a beach ball off the ground.

Do you know how to build a campfire? Setting things up for a campfire can be easy if you have everything you need close by.

String Burning Challenge
How fast can your Lair get a fire lit and roaring? Are you faster than the other Lairs in your Pack? Find out what Lair is really best at this classic Scouting skill. Race to light a campfire that can burn through a string strung over the fire.
Lost & Find Me
Take your next game of Hide-and-Go-Seek to the next level! As a Lair, decide on a time and place to have this Adventure. You’ll need a map, too. You might want to try this out in the neighbourhood around your meeting hall, or at your Scout Camp.
Krazy Kub Kars
Get ready for the Kub Kar rally of your dreams! Take your Kub Kar to the next level and make it the fastest one at the rally.
Blast Off with Model Rockets!
Build and launch model rockets! You can have fun designing your rocket’s appearance. Paint it whatever colour you like, and add some great decals. Of course, the most rewarding part will be seeing just how high your rocket flies!
As Masters of Ceremonies, organize a fun and formal campfire for other Scouts to attend. Invite your guests to contribute skits, songs and cheers.
Have you ever looked up from a city street and found you couldn’t see the stars? Why not reconnect with the night sky? It’s been a source of cultural and scientific inspiration to people all over the world for all of human history!
