Facts/ statement thingers

  • Secure all lighters and matches and keep them out of children’s reach.
  • Maintain a 2 to 3.5 meter (6 – 10 foot) clearance around your campfire.
  • Use crumpled paper and/or kindling to start a fire rather than using flammable liquids.
  • Keep campfires to a small, manageable size no more than 1 meter (3 feet) high by 1 meter (3 feet) in diameter and don't let it get out of hand.
  • Loose clothing can easily catch fire. Never reach into a campfire to rearrange pieces of wood.
  • Teach each of your children how to STOP, DROP and ROLL should their clothing catch on fire. Teach children to cool a burn with cool running water for 3 – 5 minutes.
  • Don't burn garbage in your campfire. The smell is unpleasant for you and your neighbors and may attract animals to your campsite.

A Camping we will go!

I'm Going Camping!
(tune: Twinkle Twinkle)

I'm going camping, yes sirree!
I'm going camping, won't you come with me?
First we'll pitch our tent on the ground,
Then make a fire as we all gather round.
I'm going camping, yes sirree!
I'm going camping, won't you come with me?

Next we'll cook on the open fire,
Then till stories till we all get tired.
When the stars are twinkling bright,
We'll sleep in our tents 'til the morning light.
I'm going camping, yes sirree!
I'm going camping, won't you come with me?

When we see the morning sun,
We'll wake right up 'cause the day's begun.
There's so much that we can do --
Fishing, swimming, hiking, too.
I'm going camping, yes sirree!
I'm going camping, won't you come with me?
