Programme Spark

At an appropriate occasion such as a camp, have the young people in your Section organise and lead a campfire. They will need to ensure the campfire is lit, sustained and extinguished safely afterwards.

During the campfire they should lead, taking responsibility for leading songs, getting everyone to join in, performing sketches and creating a running order so others can contribute too. 

Adapting for each Section

This can be a daunting task for the younger sections, especially in front of older Scouts, so they may work better in teams with adult help where needed.

Experienced Scouts and Explorers should be able to complete this Spark on their own.
