Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

Hare and Hounds



One Guide, the Hare is given the whistle.

She is sent off to an easily found destination – 1/2 to 1km away.

She is to pick up an object at that point and bring it back to the starting point.
She is to blow the whistle every minute while she is moving.

She can follow round about rounds, double back and can remain still without whistling if she knows that the Hounds are near her and she is in hiding.
The rest of the players, the Hounds, start after the Hare when she has a five minute head start.

The Hare is tracked by the sound of the whistle.

If more than a minute goes by with no whistle, they know that someone is near the Hare.
A Hound catches the Hare with a two-handed touch.

If the Hare is caught or successfully returns to the starting point, have a recall signal (whistle or horn) so that Hounds will know that the game is over.
