Making The Last Part Of The Day, The Best Part Of The Day
"Fire's burning, fire's burning, draw nearer, draw nearer, in the gloaming, in the gloaming, come sing and be merry."
That's right. It's GLOAMING - but glowing works too.
I love the picture that this old Girl Guide song paints. Huddled friends, a warm fire, the twilight after a great day and singing in harmony. The campfire is a special time where we get to reflect, sing, dance, and act all together. It is one of the pinnacle moments of the day where the entire camp (directors included!) can be together. It's powerful it has the potential to shape the camp experience for both campers and staff.
This episode, CampHackers Gab, Joe and Dan get together to share not only some awesome ideas that can be included in your campfires, but how the philosophy of your campfires can, and should, reflect the culture of your camp.
