Sitting around the campfire, telling stories and roasting marshmallows are highlights of most people’s summers! Kids will learn how to make homemade fire-starters from household materials you probably have sitting around. Then, we’ll talk campfire safety and learn how to build a strong fire for optimal marshmallow roasting.

Families of participants are invited to join us at 7:30 PM for S’mores! Bring the rest of the family, a chair/blanket to sit on and roasting sticks if you have them. We’ll provide the rest! Help us wrap up Camp Thornapple 2023 the best way possible. There will not be a rain date for this class. Pray for good weather!
