Campfire Experiences at Summer Camp
Activities >> Campfies Experiences
Campfires are a favorite time for all of the Mountain Meadow Ranch family. Each cabin group prepares and comes to the campfire with a skit or song...some groups perform for the pleasure of the summer camp family. It is a time of laughing together, fun and reflection, for giving recognition, and singing old camp songs. It is during these times of "coming together" that the kids truly feel the bond of friendship and family that takes place at our California summer camp. At the end of each campfire there is quiet time of reflection and sharing when Chip, Jody and the staff can discuss the progression of the camp family to the kids. areas to encourage and be proud of, and areas where we might need to improve. At this time everyone in the summer camp family has the opportunity to standup and share with the group whatever is on their heart at this time. Some kids share their feelings about experiences at Mountain Meadow Ranch, others choose this time to thank a fellow camper for some good deed and others share with the group their desire to improve in some area. It is a free, spontaneous time of sharing. This family sharing is always a heart-warming, magical time where beneath a sky filled with stars, time stands still and the Mountain Meadow Ranch family truly comes together as one.
