Short description The patrol has to pitch a tent, but matters are complicated by everybody having a “disability”.
Instructions Give the participants different “disabilities” and let them pitch a tent. It might be useful to have one person in the patrol without a “disability”, so that this person can help the rest if problems arise. To make this activity more complicated, do it without speaking at all.
