Narator: On This episode of Mythbusters Jamie and Adam will be looking at the
myth That you can’t have a accessible scout activity that is fun for all scouts.
Adam: Adam you have been in scouting a while now right?
Jamie: Yes a number of years
Adam: Have you seen people saying they can’t have a fun activity for all
scouts that is also accessible to scouts with special needs
Jamie: Yes I have.
Adam: Let explore whether this is a plausible or a myth. Today we will look at
a few scout activities and see if they can be made accessible
Jamie: Ok. Perhaps we should try pioneering, camping (?), knots (?).
Adam: Lets first talk about pioneering. That is a great scout acitivy
Jamie: Your Right! Everyone loves pionerering. Lets see, what are great
Adam: Building flagpoles, camp gadgets, bridges, A frames.
Jamie: Bridges. Those are always fun.
Adam: true they can be fun, but is that the only one that would work?? Scouts
that have mobility challenges could have a hard time on a rope bridge.
Jamie: I guess your right. Then what could we do?
Adam: I was thinking something that can show of lashes, has a physical
component like a bridge, but someone with limited mobility could do it.
Jamie: What are you thinking?
Adam: Chariot Races! You can all build chariots out of a frames, and any
scout, including limited mobility scouts could ride on it
Jamie: That would would well, but that is only one scout acitivty a special
needs kid could do. What else could they do?
Adam: Well how about another tried and true scouting activity?
Jamie: Such as?
