We’ll start the afternoon with our annual Camp Fire Celebration by enjoying outdoor activities and games, followed by a big cookout. Immediately following the Celebration, we will transition into Group Camping with an evening of s’mores, outdoor activities, stargazing, and camping in tents. Sunday morning, we will provide breakfast, do some outdoor living skills workshops, and then pack up camp. Sunday workshop topics could include fire building, outdoor cooking, knot tying, orienteering with compasses, Leave No Trace camping skills, and other useful tips and tricks to help your group get ready for an adventure in nature. Membership in Camp Fire is not required, however, youth must be supervised at all times by a parent, guardian, or Camp Fire leader!
