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.

My Favorite Camp Things

Dewdrops on gumboots and bowls of rice crispies

Woodsmoke on kettles and stews cooked in dixies

Sturdy wood gadgets all fashioned with string

These are a few of my favorite things

Green colored ridge tents put up in a hurry

Whistles and cow horns and goulash with curry

Wild ducks that fly with the sun on the wings

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in blue dresses with navy blue jackets

Can’t get to sleep for the noise and the racket

Bright golden mornings that make us all sing

These are a few of my favorite things

When the camp ends when the bus comes

We simply remember our favorite things ,

And we don’t feel so bad.

Countdown Cheer

10.   9.   8.   7.   6.   5.   4.   3.   2…..

WONDERFUL.

A great little distraction and time filler as nearly every Guide is familiar with the numbers.  Same as the Give me a ‘G’ yell.

EVERYONE’S DIFFERENT

One Guide is sitting on a chair reading a newspaper. She has socks on her hands and other clothing on back to front.

Pat:   Hello Mary.

Mary:   Hello Pat.

Pat:  Do you always wear your clothes back to front?

Mary:  Yes Pat.

Pat:   Why do you do that Mary?

Mary: It’s my peculiarity. Everyone has some peculiarity Pat.

Pat:   I don’t.

Mary: Don’t you stir your coffee with your right hand Pat?

Pat:   Yes,Mary.

Mary: Well that is your peculiarity. Most people use a teaspoon.

HAIRCUT MACHINE

A Guide wearing a large wig enters a hairdresser and asks for a haircut.

The hairdresses asks her to pop her head into the haircut machine.(A large box)

The Guide puts her head in the haircut machine and there is much yelling and shouting, accompanied by sounds of machinery.

The GTuide switches her wig for a bathibg cap.

She removes her head from the machine and runs wildly offstage.

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!”
