comment Survival type activies for Scout camp
I second the orienteering idea. It's a game that teaches valuable compass / navigation skills. @Ahlqvist, you should make that an actual answer.

comment How to create campfire which will burn overnight?
Take EVERYTHING you see on Man vs Wild with a grain of salt. Bear doesn't actually do the survival. He stages pieces of it for TV. I have seen bad advice given by him, and he was proved a fraud a few years back, at least for the show. Personally, I like Survivorman, because it's real. No crew, no fakery. Success, or failure, he shows it all.

comment How can I contact emergency services in the US via the internet?
Where it texting emergency services isn't an option, you'll have to use my other suggestion of texting a 3rd party.

comment How can I contact emergency services in the US via the internet?
In some countries, text messages can be used to contact emergency services. In the UK, text messages can be used to call emergency services only after registering with the emergency SMS service. This service is primarily aimed at people who, by reason of disability, are unable to make a voice call. It has recently been promoted as a means for walkers and climbers to call emergency services from areas where a voice call is not possible due to low signal strength. (wiki)
