Camp Poems

Beautiful readings to share with and unite the whole camp.

Camp fun is not all about singing boom chicka boom or performing the squeegee hunt song. When the camp skits are all performed, when the camp songs are all sung, it’s time to transition from the loud, rowdy portion of campfire into the quiet, soothing tones of the end of the night. Poems are the perfect thing to read during this end portion of the evening. Feel free to call on a camper or two to help you read these in front of the whole camp group.
