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.

Following a different route to…

Some very important decissions to be made each time the planning of the Rac Wac (Race around Churchill, Walk around Churchill) is underway is:

a) Where is the starting point,

b) What is the destination

c) Time of day to start, d) theme of day,

e) Mode of transport available (feet or wheels?)

f) Family event, district event or just Guides and Leaders?

g) What are the Occupational, Health and Safety requirements,

h) Is each patrol following a different route to an appropriate destination ( accompanied by an adult with first aid kit and a car) or are the whole lot going together to the end destination?

i) Costs involved?

j) What are the S.W.O.T. things to consider?

K) Menu and allergies to foods.
