Campfire Opening
By: Longhorn Council Posted On: 2010-10-15

Four Cubs, Webelos or Scouters required, facing the points of the compass with
tinder and lighted candles or paper.

NORTH:
SOUTH:
EAST:
WEST:

I bring to this fire tinder from the north and remind all of a Cub Scout’s first duty:

Duty to God - to be reverent towards God, to respect the beliefs of others, and to
live according to the teaching of his religion.

I bring to this fire tinder from the south and remind all of a Cub Scout’s second
duty:

Duty to Country - to be a good citizen, living by laws and customs of our nation,
and to work together to solve our country’s problems.

I bring to this fire tinder from the east and remind all of a Cub Scout’s third duty:

Duty to Self- to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally
straight.

I bring to this fire tinder from the west and remind all of a Cub Scout’s fourth duty:

Scouting Spirit and how it will show in the way we act and the things we do – and
living every day according to the Cub Scout Promise and Law of the Pack we will
collectively, with our individual gifts, light OUR campfire.
