Dear Friends

If you are going to woods to make a camp don't forget to take this book with you for
your scouts (from five years to young adults). They will do at least 4-6 activities within their scouting activities anyway. These are

Area A
A.01 take a hike Go for a hike in the forest (may be half an hour )
A.07 age rings A tree’s age can be determined by its ring numbers.
They may also do ...
A.03 sounds and signs Conduct an observation mission in a forest early in the morning
A.04 five good things What are five reasons why forests are important to nature
A.05 Bark patterns

Area B
They Do anyway
B.03 safety first To be safe, the people who work in forests need to follow certain security and safety rules.
They may do
B.01 lively woods Prepare an investigative report on a forest in your area. What type of forest is it?
B.04 forest jobs List as many jobs as you can think of that depend on forests, either directly or indirectly. With your group, play a game of charades in which one person acts out the job, and the other people try to guess it.

Area C
They do anyway
C.02 FORESTS AND FIRES
Particular caution and adult supervision required Learn how to safely build and enjoy an outdoor campfire. Collect wood and kindling (dry leaves and small sticks to help light the fire).
C.04 outdoor adventures What are some different recreational activities you can do in the forest (e.g. camping, hiking, rock climbing, cooking, etc.)?
They may do
C.03 playful learning Research different kinds of games traditionally played by forest-based cultures. Play three of these games; choose one game that is played in your country
and two that are played in other countries. What does each game teach the players?
C.05 wish tree Collect forest materials that can be used as paper (e.g. bark, leaves, etc.). Write wishes on them, and then use them to create a big collage of a tree – or a group of trees,
C.13 find you r way Participate in a forest orienteering event where you have to find your way through a forest with a map.

Area D
They may easily do
D.01 forests under threat Create a collage, model or
educational poster of the threats to forests in your area and
to forests around the world. Write a short artist’s statement
to accompany it explaining the impacts of these threats and
what we can do to make a difference. If possible, display
your artwork in a public space, like a school or a park visitor’s
centre.

D.07 fa vourite forest Look up different forests in the world and choose one
that seems especially nice to you. Would you like to visit this forest? Why? Is this forest
facing any risks? What are they? What are people doing to protect it?

Area E
They do anyway
E.01 Forest Fête Plan and/or participate in a forest celebration with games, music, sports, entertainment, food and other fun things (your camp fire celebrationd counts for this)

E.03 Less Litter! Unfortunately, garbage sometimes becomes a part of the forest landscape. Visit a forest in your area and look for litter and other waste. (your clean up at the end of camp counts for it)

Now they are ready to receive a UN YUNGA certificate
thank you
this year some groups from Turkey achieved this curriculum and received their certificates

I am sorry I posted forest challenge instead of Ocean challenge

this is the link where you will see required activities. following are the ones I think you already done in camp and you can finist others at home. plaese let me know when you finizh them up to redceive your ;Ocean challengr certificate
In this avard scheme there is more then 100 activities in 5 different areas. The participants are required one compulsory and one selected activity only..Activities also marked for different age groups. It is also ok to select another activity which is not in the book by leaders

I found out some of the activities already done. These are

C.02
Seaside Fun
Materials: Internet, magazine or newspaper access, cameras, paper, pens and pencils.
There are all kinds of recreational activities to do at the beach. How many can you think of? Which ones have you already tried and which would you still like to try?
Conduct a survey in your area to find out which activities people have done at the beach. alternatively, go to your local beach and count how many people are taking part in the different activities. What is the most popular activity? Make charts to show your findings. Make sure
you record the date of your visit. That way, if you or another member of your group visits the same beach on another day, you can compare your findings. Have the numbers changed? Why do you think that might be?
THEY ARE ALL DONE THAT

C.06
Boats and Seafa rers
Materials: Craft materials (e.g. bottles, pipes, yoghurt pots, plastic sheeting, small pieces of wood, aluminium foil, paper, card, string, glue, sticky tape) – anything you think you might need!
Particular caution and adult supervision required.
The challenge is to build a small boat that floats and doesn’t tip over (capsize). The boat that carries the greatest pretend cargo wins (any small items, like coins, grains of rice or even an apple). What do you think will help keep your boat upright and balanced? Draw a design for your boat before you start. Once everyone has made their boat, find somewhere calm to test them. If you go to a pool, a river, lake or at the beach, take the necessary safety precautions. Otherwise you could fill up a bath, sink or large plastic tub.

THE SCOUTS WHO PARTİCİPATE TO ORİGAMİ RACE AND THE ONES WHO HELP TO MAKET THEİR BOATS ARE OK FOR THİ,S ACTIVITY. SOME OF THEM MAY BE ALREADY MADE A MODELBOAT PREVİOUSLY THEY ARE OK TOO

E.01
Materials: Buckets or bags for collecting rubbish, gloves, scales, pens and paper, glue, a camera (optional).
P articular caution and adult supervision required.
Visit your local beach or coast and try to collect as much rubbish as you can find. Make sure you use gloves to protect your hands and if you find sharp objects or anything that you are unsure of, get an adult to take a look first and decide if you should pick it up or not. Once you have finished, put all the rubbish together in a big pile. What have you found?
Sort the rubbish into different types, such as plastic bottles, plastic bags, glass, cans, rope and so on. Count the number of pieces of rubbish you have of each type and then weigh them.What do you have the greatest number of? And what weighs the most? Taking examples of the different types of rubbish, use them to make a display (make sure they are clean first) in your meeting place. Include labels saying how many pieces and the weight of that type of rubbish you found. Invite your friends and parents to see the results of your work. See if you can find out about companies and organizations with clever ideas for turning marine rubbish into something useful, for example: www.theffrc.com
THIS IS A TRADITION ON ALL SEA SCOUT CAMPS ı ASSUME İT WİLL BE CARRİED OUT TOMORROW

There is some others which are so easy to be done by scouts tomorrow or on the way back home or at home under the supervision of their leaders

Compulsery one’s

B.02
Coast Visit
Materials: Suitable clothing and footwear for walking, paperand pens, clipboards, a copy of the seashore code, a seashore guidebook (if available), a camera (optional).
P articular caution and adult supervision required.
Some marine organisms are poisonous or can sting and should not be touched. Find out if there are any creatures to avoid at the beach you will visit beforehand Ask your teacher/group leader to organize a group visit to a beach at low tide. Before you go, make sure you read the seashore code and remember, even if you live next to the coast, don’t go without an adult and make sure you tell someone where you are going and when you’ll be back.Look for animals and plants that live on the shore. Look by the water and higher up the beach; check underneath rocks, but be sure to put them back carefully as you found them. Are
there any rock pools? What can you see in them? Can you see any holes in the sand? What might be living in them?
Draw pictures or take photographs of the animals and plants that you find. Do you know what they are? If yes, label each picture, if not, have a look in a seashore guidebook to find out. In tricky cases, take notes describing the plant or animal and look it up when you get home. Where did you find each animal? Why are they found there and what special features do they have to be able to survive there? Do you know what the food web looks like for these animals? Why not try drawing it!
I AM SURE THAT IT IS DONE ALREADY AND ONLY TO MAKE DAWİNGS AND TAKİNG PHOTOS ARE NEEDED I AM SURE IT WILL BE FINALIZED TOMORROW ON CRLEAN UP

E.04 Sustainable Seafood
Materials: Internet access: www.montereybayaquarium.org/cr/ cr_seafoodwatch/sfw_consumers.aspx and www.msc.org/cookeat- enjoy/fish-to-eat.
Many common fish that we see at fishmongers or in shops are in danger because of overfishing or because the way they are caught or farmed damages the marine environment and other marine species. Discuss what you know about fishing, using the information provided by the Monterey Bay Aquarium or the
Marine Stewardship Council. Which types of seafood are most sustainable? What recipes can you find for cooking with them? Encourage your family and friends to buy sustainably sourced seafood. You can also join established campaigns (e.g. take the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s seafood watch challenge: sign up to be a Seafood Watch Advocate and take part in Seafood Watch activities throughout the year).
I AM SURE THAT YOUR CATERİNG ALREADY FULFİLLED THE REQUİREMENT OF THİD ONE
İF NOT TROOPS MAY DO İT AT HOME OR AMOTHER ACTİVİTY FROM GRUP E

NOW PARTİCİPANTS ARE OK FOR C AND E AREAS
A.01 Our Ocean
Materials: Internet access or access to reference books. In pairs or on your own, find out some key facts about the ocean (or sea) closest to where you live. For example, how big and deep is it? What human activities go on there? In what other ways does this ocean or sea influence your lives? Put together a quiz for the rest of your group and compare your findings by answering each other’s questions.
THEY ALREADY BEEN İN ARES SIMILER TO ONE DESCRBED. TROOP MAY TAKE PHOTOS AND MAKE A HUNDRES WORD REPORT WITH PHOTOS AT HOME OR LEADERS MAY DO A QUİZZ ON THE WAY BACK

They can select an selected activity from A aea and do that at home

B.01 OCEAN LIFE
Materials: Pictures of marine life, reference books or internet access, paper, coloured pens and pencils or paints, scrap materials for making a collage or model.
Discuss life in the ocean. What is the biggest sea creature you can think of? What is the smallest? What lives at the coast and what lives out at sea? Have a look at the pictures and reference books and make a list of all the animals and plants that you can think of that live in the sea. Make a drawing, collage or model of what you think life underwater might look like. Put together an ocean display in a public place.
IT IS SO SIMPLE YOU MAY DO IT AT HOME AND SEND A PHOTO ONE ITEM FOR A PARTOL İS GOOD ENOUGH

B.03
Which Animal Am I?
Materials: Pictures of common marine animals and Plant from your area. Before starting the game, the whole group should have a look at all the pictures. Think about how you might describe
the animals and plants you see. Are there any similarities between them? Try sorting them into groups. Write down the common features of these groups. Once everyone is familiar with the pictures, mix them all up. Get one person to pick a picture and then describe it to the rest of the group without giving away the name. The group has to guess what animal or plant is being described.
YOU CAN PLAY IT JUST AFTER THE CLEAN UP OR AT HOME
D.01
Smaller Foot prints
Materials: Internet or reference book access to information about the ocean and climate change.
Discuss the impacts of climate change on the ocean and how these might affect people. Make a list of all the ways that human activities impact on climate change and therefore ocean life.
What can be done to reduce these impacts? How can you, your family, friends and community support this? Create a list of everyday activities that you can easily change to help reduce
your greenhouse gas emissions (e.g. get ideas from
www. spa.gov/climatestudents/solutions/actions/index.html).
Choose three ways to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions and commit to making these changes. Revisit this challenge after two weeks to see how you are getting on. Renew your pledge
and commit to keep going!
DISCUSS IT AND EVERY ONE OF EVERY PATROL MAY SELECT THREE WAY AS ASKED

MAKE ONE OF THE SELECTED ACTİVİTİES

I HOPE Camp administratrion help yo distribute this information

Kindest Regards
Yours in Scouting
