Campfires

CampfireWind your night down with a great campfire. Your guide will help the students create a campfire and go over safety considerations for the situation. Students may sing songs, have conversations, or enjoy the sparks in silence. It's the best time to debrief your day, talk about how being in nature has taught you something you never thought you would know or just the highlights and challenges of the day. Roast some marshmallows or even better make s'mores.

It's so great for students to be surrounded by their classmates outside of the classroom with some unstructured time to learn about one another. Your guide may suggest a solo-sit to encourage some individual or private thinking time and create a thoughtful conversation around the fire.
