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

Preparing a camp fire

Choose a theme and sort out the camp fire program 

  • Learn the song selection [at least be familiar with.]
  • My favorite camp things
  • What about using the Yells, Chants, and camp fire games?

Know the campfire and flame safety rules.

Practice with marshmallows and candle.

Have activities in the dark.

Have alternatives for bad weather.

Make equipment to use at campfire

  • Notice board with emergency assembly area on display
  • Sign in / sign out book.
  • Campfire song book each member.
  • Making an entrance.
  • Marsh mellow sticks.
  • Water buckets.
  •  Camp Blanket.
  • Woodpile – graded.
  • Musical instruments
  • What about the campfire too?

Now just who is the target audience for this campfire.  Just the Guides as part of their program or a camp? Or the Unit or Adults such as the Gipps Guides too?  To be inclusive of friends and family? As a District event that is target to what audience.  The combination of the talents and skills learned by those preparing the campfire suggestions / evaluations made before, and who the target audience is strongly reflects the planning and management of the campfire.

The Belt skit.

cast ; two

Both characters are standing on stage, one standing quietly, the other rushing around in a panic, swatting the air, yelling:   “Its all around me, its all around me!”

“What’s all around you? “My belt, of course!”

SWEDISH FIRE SONG

Chorus;

Burn clear against the sky,

your song is always new

So sing with us and light our way,

Until the fire burns through.

Light up the fire and join the ring,

Let the music echo,

Cheerful hearts are calling

Where the flames leaps strong and high

Revealing all around us,

fire and song remind us

How our promise binds.

Holding us in one

Chorus;

Burn clear against the sky,

Your song is always new

So sing with us and light our way,

Until the fire burns through.

WORLD CENTRES YELL

Pax Lodge, one of the 4 World Centres of WAGGGS
Image via Wikipedia

Divide the Guides onto four sections.  There are different ways of doing this yell based on the experiance of the Guides. Firstly section one yells out the first line.  As they move onto the second line the second section yells out the first line.  On it goes.

Alternatively all the sections begin only yelling out their own line.  Start this way with section one and then section two while section one keeps up their Yelling.

Grand finally of this Yell is the fifth line.
