Boy Scouts Practice For an Unexpected Night Out in the Wilderness

Here is one quick shelter that can be made with a tarp.
The thought was to take a quick hike before dinner, and the plan was to be gone about 45 minutes. But now you’re lost, and the safest course of action is to stay put and spend the night. Luckily, you have your Ten Essentials, and whatever food you packed, but no tent, sleeping bag or insulite pad.
Oh. And your matches don’t work. 
You have to build a shelter, and figure out how to stay warm, since the temperatures could drop into the 30s.
Have a nice night!
That was the scenario last weekend when 13 Boy Scouts and five adult leaders from Troops 18 and 90, located in Bend, OR. went on a “Ten Essentials Campout.” The idea was to train for surviving an unexpected night out in the wilderness. The theme was: “No tents, no sleeping bags, no matches, No PROBLEM!”
