Posted On: 2020-08-21

(Audience is seated and all lights are turned off.  Campfire is ready to light from each corner.)

First Person: (Enters campfire area with candle in hand and stands in front of campfire facing audience.  Lights candle with lighter and says...) "This is the light Scouting.  It radiates enthusiasm.  As light brings out the sparkle in diamonds, enthusiasm brings out the sparkle in Scouting."

Second Person: (Walks into campfire area and stands on right side of person with lit candle.  Lights candle from first candle then faces audience and says...) "This is the light of Scouting.  It's energy gives us the strength to do our best!"

Third Person: (Walks into campfire area and stands on left side of person with lit candle.  Lights candle from first candle then faces audience and says..)   "This is the light of Scouting.  It touches everyone.  Remember the brotherhood we share together in this place."

Fourth Person: (Walks into campfire area and stands on right side of person with lit candle.  Lights candle from first candle then faces audience and says...)   "This is the light of Scouting.  It brightens the way of the path we will follow."

All four people turn around and walk back to the campfire.  One person stands by each corner of the campfire and together they light the campfire.  Together they stand behind the campfire and the first person says:

"Feel the warmth from the glow of the light.  May it warm your heart."   All blow out candles and walk away,
