With your accompanying adult on a campout or outdoor activity, assist in preparing, cooking, and cleanup for one of your den's meals.

Explain why it is useful to be able to throw a rope, then demonstrate how to coil and throw a 40-foot length of 1/4- or 3/8-inch rope. Explain how to improve your throwing distance by adding weight to the end of your rope.
Pioneering Merit Badge: 8. Demonstrate the use of rope tackle to lift a weight of 25 pounds and pulling a log at least 6 inches in diameter and 6 feet long with the tackle.
