Campfire Stories

Grab the s’mores, light the campfire, and gather ’round for these legendary, heartwarming, and scary campfire stories.

What’s the best way to entertain a group of campers during down time? Sure, you can sing a camp song – maybe “yeah toast” or “boom chicka boom” is your style – or play a camp game (we love ninja!) – but sometimes we’re just a bit too tired or pooped to do those energetic things. In cases like these, your campers deserve some relaxing entertainment. We love to tell all types of campfire stories, from scary stories to funny stories, from ghost stories to mythological stories. The stories we tell, the memories we make, and the laughter we share all comprise a heartfelt camp session.
