Campfire Advancement Ceremony

The buckskin pioneers settled down at night and usually had a campfire for cooking and for warmth. It takes several ingredients to make a campfire. To start, you have to find some small sticks or twigs. (have bobcat candidates bring in some twigs or sticks and place on the ground)

Discuss their accomplishments and present badges. (set sticks on fire)

The next ingredient is to add kindling to get the fire going. (have Wolf candidates put kindling on the fire)

Discuss their accomplishments.

The next step is to add the fuel to the fire. We do this by adding wood. (have bear candidates bring in wood and place on fire)

Discuss their accomplishments.

The Webelos scout adds to his knowledge and Scouting experience by completing activities. The fire will not burn unless more wood is added. (have Webelos place more wood on the fire)

Discuss their accomplishments.

With fire now burning take an arrow and discuss the elements to earn the arrow of light. (Call candidates forward) This arrow and the light from the fire represents the highest honor a Cub Scout can achieve. The Arrow (hold up arrows) of Light. (point to fire)

Discuss accomplishments.
