The 5-Star Dump

Use this system to help kids keep their intestines in operation while in the wilderness. Each evening or morning, ask how many stars did they get. This helps the kids make a game out of it, and helps avoid problems because the kids are embarrassed to go off into the woods.

Stars are cumulative, i.e. to get a 2-star dump, criteria 1 and 2 must be met; to get a 5-star dump, all criteria must be met.

Stars Criteria
 *  1. The perfect place. Away from the trail, the camp and the water.
 * *  2. The perfect soil. Must be full of organic material to aid in the decomposition of the waste.
 * * *  3. Something to sit on or lean against.
 * * * *  4. A gorgeous view.
 * * * * *  5. In order for it to be a true five-star dump, wildlife must walk by.

No, there is no extra credit for having something to read.

Thanks to S.Featherkile for sharing this system
