A great way to wrap up the day... CAMPFIRE!

Do you know the words to that infamous tune, "BABY SHARK"? How long can you hold an Alka Seltzer tablet in your mouth after a big gulp of soda? Who can eat a Twinkie (filled with mayonnaise) the fastest? Which cabin will put together the best skit based on the camp theme? If you don't know the answer to those questions now - don't worry. You will soon find out at the Teen Camp Campfire!


Each evening we end the day with a mix of fun and praise around the Camp Far Westa campfire. There are some old favorites in terms of songs and skits - but each year offers up some crazy new fun - everything from shopping tips for the Dollar Gen'dral to surprise celebrity wrestler appearances. The final campfire on Thursday night a favorite - a wonderful testimony service just for our campers.
