Closing Campfire is always bittersweet, it’s a great way to celebrate the incredible session we’ve had, but it’s sad that it’s over. We heard some beautiful singing, wonderful original songs, some jokes, stories, and even a choreographed dance from our dance specialty! (pictured above)
We’ve a had a great few days. Tuesday night we played a new game called, “Storm the Castle” which involved building ‘castles’ out of card board and milk crates, and throwing water balloons at each other to see which castles would hold up best. Last night, campers did “Paper Bag Skits,” where campers were asked to make up skits based on random props that they find.
To finish out the final blog of the session, I’d like to share this: this year, some of the staff re-wrote the lyrics to “Take Me Home, Country Roads” to be about the farm entitled, “Take Me Home, Denning Road.” This session, before singing it they taught the chorus to the campers so that we could all sing it together. It goes like this:
Denning Road, take me home
To the place, I belong
Catskills Mountains, where the Farm is
Take me home, Denning Road
It was a really beautiful way to end the session. Thank you so much for an incredible 12 days, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
