Sealed Orders (Mystery) Hike

Preliminary: The necessary preparations are evident from the execution. Any number of Scout Requirements may be incorporated.

Execution: Each Patrol Leader receives a series of numbered envelopes each containing specific instructions covering a definite stage of the hike. 

The first may say to proceed to a certain cross road by a certain route. 

The second, which is to be opened only when the hikers reach the end of the first stage of the journey, gives the second part of the route, and so on. 

Instructions for each part should mention specific opportunities for observation, Scoutcraft, etc. This method of giving instructions keeps the interest and anticipation at a high pitch and allows the boys' imagination to run riot--as the final destination is not disclosed until the last sealed envelope is opened.
