Campfire Ashes

Campfire Ashes

Legend has it that Baden-Powell would always take a small amount of ashes from the campfire and spread these ashes into the next campfire

Ashes taken from a campfire are sprinkled into the flames of the next campfire. The next morning, when the ashes are cold, they are stirred, and each Guide or Scout takes some along to mix with her/his next campfire. If more than one Guide/Scout brings ashes to the same campfire, the lists are pooled, with the dates and places of all campfires recorded and passed on.

It is a tradition that only those present at the ceremony may carry the ashes from that ceremony
