Campfire Sunday: Boom Chicka Boom

Boom Chicka Boom is probably one of our Guide units favourite songs. It’s really good for when you have people who don’t know campfire songs because it’s a ‘repeat after me’ song. It is also better being sung standing up, so if they are starting to get bored/fall asleep, this is a good one to get the blood moving again! For it to work, it needs a dose of silliness and not taking yourself too seriously. The girls always laugh and join in the more I ‘over do’ the actions I make up! If you don’t do it enthusiatically, the girls likely won’t either.

You can also make up your own verses, and I’m sure some of you have ones to add that your own units do, or variations of the ones I’ve put here. 🙂 In fact, you’ll notice in the video some different styles (their ‘valley girl’ is similar to our ‘mean girl’ style).
