8-Bit Virtual Campfire, 1970s & 1980s
|8-Bit Virtual Campfire
5PM to 6PM, Sunday, February 7
Via Zoom Video Conference
The 8-Bit Virtual Campfire is a 1970s and 1980s themed virtual campfire. Scout families, dens, patrols, and troops are encouraged to provide a skit, story, or song from 1970s or 1980s pop culture. They can even do a traditional campfire skip in a 70s or 80s style.
All scouts and their families from throughout the Sunrise District, the rest of the California Inland Empire Council, and beyond are invited to be a part of the 8-Bit Virtual Campfire. You can participate by coming with a song, skit, or story to perform that has a 70s or 80 twist. Think big hair, bell bottoms, break dancing or disco, Saturday Night Fever, where’s the beef, and other pop culture icons from this era.
How to register to attend the campfire:
The campfire will be hosted live on Zoom by local Order of the Arrow members and video submissions will be showcased. Per Scouts BSA’s policy, we ask that you register to attend this virtual campfire. Once you register we will email the Zoom link, meeting ID#, and password. You can register for the campfire via a form on Google Docs.
How to participate:
Please submit a video of your skit, song, or story with a 70s or 80s twist. If you would like to involve other adult leaders then please remember that there is no in-person scouting activities currently allowed so you will have to be creative in your approach.
Please keep videos to around 3-4 minutes in length and scout appropriate in content. Please include your name and troop or pack and the name of your skit, song, or story.
All videos must be submitted via upload through a Google Docs form (available on the registration page), an email attachment, dropbox link, or Google Drive link, or similar file sharing service. All video submissions must be received by 12PM on Sunday, February 7. All videos will be reviewed for appropriateness to be included in the virtual campfire.
