This year the teen campers had an entirely different experience than all years prior: camp did not take place at Camp Pinnacle. All of our experiences were new and because of the change in location many of our traditions were uprooted. Normally the teen campers go camping and then white-water rafting, but this year we could not… but the staff thought of a solution: Camp Out Night! The tribe of Judah packed up their sleeping bags and camped out on the Camp Herrlich grounds. We set up and slept in tents that are normally used for adventure camp. Watson an out of cabin staff worked with us to build a fire and roast marshmallows to make s’mores. The campers helped too though, though we scoured the woods looking for kindling for the fire, we brought it back to Watson and she used it for building up the fire. We then looked for sticks to roast our marshmallows and got to roasting! After we ate s’mores, we sang some campfire songs. We spent some time talking and looking at the stars before doing our devotions and heading to bed. The next morning, we packed up our tents and Camp Out Night was officially over.
