Easily one of the oldest traditions on camp is our Opening Campfire!
Opening Campfire consists of a short introduction of the directors then presentations by the staff of each village. Some range from quick songs, contests and/or skits. Another tradition that has resurfaced this season is this:
These “urns” are used to hold the ashes from the opening campfire and then poured onto our closing. Ashes are then picked up from our closing and used to pour over the following sessions fire. They are also to be held until the opening campfire the following season. This tradition has come and gone here at camp but with our new ash receptacles it has been something that campers highly anticipate at the closing of each session. Hopefully this will be a longstanding tradition here at camp.
