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.

0 Come and Go With Me


0h come and go with me

To my Father’s house,

To my Father’s house,

To my Father’s house.

O come and go with me

To my Father’s house.

There’s sweet communion there, etc.

They’ll be no parting there, etc.

Amazing grace

Amazing Grace

1,         Amazing grace.

How sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost, but now I’m found,

Was blind but now I see.

2         ‘Twas grace that Taught my heart to fear

And Grace my fears relieved.

How precious did that grace appear

The hour I first believed.

3                  Through many dangers, toils and snares

I have already come.

‘T’is Grace hath bought me safe this far.

.And Grace will lead me home.

4        The Lord has promised good to me

His word my hope secures.

He will my  shield and protection be

As long as life endures

5        When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun.

We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise

Than when we first begun.

BRING BACK MY LEADER TO ME

Our leader said. ” Burn, bash and dump’

All rubbish and trash that you see!”

We did as he told us, exactly

-Oh. bring baek my leader to me!

CHORUS;

Bring back, oh. bring back.

Oh. bring back my leader to me. To me !

Bring back. Oh. bring back.

Oh, bring back my leader to me !

Our leader, she likes to make campfires.

For brewing up coffee and tea:

Now, kero looks almost like water

-Oh. bring back my leader to me!

The swimming-hole is so attractive,

Our leader dived in from a tree

The depth, as you know, is deceptive

-Oh, Bring back my leader to me!

Our camp-site has modem ablutions,

They don’t Fush very well as you see:

Our leader’s been in there a long time

-Oh. bring back my leader to me.!

I THANK YOU GOD

I thenk you God, for making me,for making me eyes that I may see.

All the beautiful things around,for making ears with which to hear,

All the wonderful world of sound.

And thank you for my nose as well,so many lovely things to smell.

Like homemade cakes, just freshly baked.

Or gumtree on the fire baked,.

I thank you for the gift of voice, to laugh and sing and to rejoice.

Lord, thank you for my body strong.

And for a heart to know and feel.For joys that fill me when I kneel.

And know that God did make me whole.

A body,  heart and mind and soul.

Accept my praises God to Thee

For all these gifts that make me.

From the collection of Sylvia Dalziel.who held many positions in Guiding in the Baw Baw Region.
