Posted On: 2021-07-14


Personnel:  Narrator and 7 Cub Scouts (each with hi part written on a card or memorized)

Equipment:  Real or artificial campfire, seven candles

Cubmaster:   Welcome to the Cub Scout campfire.  Akela is among us.  Let us draw from this campfire all its vibrance and warmth, the secrets of Cub Scouting, and the spirit of brotherhood.

Cub #1:   In its light, we see new chances to be helpful and do our best.

Cub #2:   From its warmth, we strengthen the bonds of fellowship and learn how to get along with others.

Cub #3:   From the stones that ring the fire and keep its power in check, we learn how we can curb our tempers and become good citizens.

Cub #4:   From the smoke that rises out of the fire, we learn to lift our eyes upward and worship God.

Cub #5:   The spark that started this fire reminds us that little Good Turns can lead to greater deeds.

Cub #6:   Just as the fire needs wood to burn bright, so do we need care and the love of our family to burn brightly.

Cub #7:   In its leaping flames, we see the fun of Cub Scouting and the joys of life.
