S1 E9: A Campy Christmas Episode

Dec 21, 2021 | Podcast

Merry Christmas (and Happy Advent if Jake has anything to say about it)!

It’s a Sacred Playgrounds podcast Christmas episode. We’ve got a story or two of our own family traditions to share, and then we explore how ritual and tradition, something that camp is incredible at creating, can be a key to faith formation and a way for camp to come home, entering into holy moments with families and impacting faith.

What traditions matter most for you, or for your camp? How are camp traditions, rituals, and practices impact your campers at home?
