Pre-Opening Activity

Build A Campfire


Have enough materials on hand and some pictures of the different types of campfires (lean-to, stack, pyramid) that people build. Let each of the boys build his own campfire out of the material set aside for him. NOTE: This is not suggesting that you turn over matches to the boys to "do their own thing." Do not leave the boys unattended with MATCHES! During the Den Meeting, you might decide to go over fire safety, campfire building, and then use their creations at the end of the meeting to have a multi- fire campfire.
