Hunt the Leader


Outrageous disguises!

Game Description

The Leaders disguise themselves as well as possible and hide somewhere in the locality (a friendly town is ideal). Eg Elderly lady at hairdressers, tramp in park, punks in phone box etc. (All been done before!).

Scouts have to find leaders and obtain password. I would suggest in small groups of 3-4 depending on age etc. Works best when children are unaccompanied so older children are better.

Best bit is listening to the children debate who is to approach elderly lady/tramp/punk and ask if they are really a Scout Leader!!

Lots of preparation needed!!

Takes several hours, but combines well with a shopping trip.

Also long periods of boredom for leaders, punctuated by short periods of stiffling giggles!
