A running response game that will (hopefully) get the participants thinking about what to do if lost.

The game leader will yell out one of the following words and the player perform the following actions:

Plan Ahead Pretend to hold a telephone; yell "Tell someone!"
North Run to the north end of the meeting area.
South Run to the south end of the meeting area.
East Run to the east end of the meeting area.
West Run to the west end of the meeting area.
STOP Yell "Stop, Think, Observe, Plan!"
Apples Rub belly; yell, "Yum, yum!"
Mushrooms Cross index finger into an "X"; yell, "No thanks!"
Black Bear Stand with arms above head; yell, "Go away!"
Grizzly Bear Put hands in front by waste, walk slowly backwards; whisper "Back away slowly..."
Bear Attack Curl into a ball on the ground.
Water Pretend to open a water bottle and take a big drink.
Shelter Put your arms over your head, angled like a roof.
Search and Rescue Whistle (as best you can). Do not use a signal whistle, only yourself, this is a just a game!
Helicopter Look up and wave; yell "Down here!"


Shout these commands out at random for practice, then read out a story like this one:



I went on a hike on a trail going north. It was a nice walk, but it would be easier by helicopter.

I did plan ahead and let someone know where I was going and when I'd be back.

It was a nice day, so I decided to explore a stream west into the woods.

It had clear, clean water with apple trees and wild mushrooms on the ground.

I lost my way and tried to go east to find the trail, but couldn't.

My water bottle was empty and the sun was setting in the west. I had to STOP.

Some black bears live nearby, so I was worried about about a bear attack.

Fortunately, I didn't need to worry about grizzly bears in this area.

Should I make a shelter? Start a fire? Go get some water?

Maybe eat some apples or mushrooms? I'm hungry enough to eat a grizzly bear.

If I headed south or east, could I get out before dark? Would I encounter black bears along the way? I don't want to be in a bear attack.

Search and rescue would start looking for me in the morning, since I did plan ahead. They would start from the south and take the trail north, hopefully they would see where I left the trail and headed west.

So, I better STOP, make a shelter, and get ready to spend the night. I need to stay warm in these north woods. I wish I had a pizza with mushrooms on it.

I should make myself visible to a helicopter, as well as ground search and rescue.

If any black bears or other animals make noises through the night, I will yell back.

I will be found soon.


Hold a discussion afterwards. Do all of these actions always make sense? Is it always wise to try to scare away wild animals? Should you drink directly from a stream?
