Fox Campfire 17th July 2010

Fox Group Campfire, 17th July 2010



We were honoured to be invited to the Fox Group's 45th Anniversary Campfire at the Greenridge Secondary School. As the P6s have stepped down, and the P5s were attending the NE Show, we only had 50 cubs attending this event.


The Campfire proved to be a very different experience for the cubs from the usual campfires that they had attended. The theme was 'Chapter 45 - Zorro', and we were taken through the story of Zorro, a superhero who helped a young scout through a journey to 'Enemy Land'. Campfire songs and dances were given a new twist, as they were weaved into the captivating storyline. 'Father Abraham' was sung and performed to a rap beat, while 'Scouting Light' was given a pop song action treatment.



The cubs were treated to a lollipop each, and they enjoyed the story and participated in the songs and games, sucking on their lollipops.


After heavy rains earlier in the day, the heaven was kind to us, allowing us to enjoy a breezy time. Our new Sixer Kimberly went up to take part in the Banana Song singing session on stage, and won herself a banana.

All too soon the evening came to an end, and the cubs snacked on the ample titbits provided by us as well as the Fox Scout Group. It was really an enjoyable and entertaining evening, and we now see a link between Zorro and scouting!
