What are Evening Embers?
Each night during summer camp, after the evening program and showers, the cabin gathers for a time together before going to sleep. These times, which we call evening embers, serve many purposes and forms, such as to create connection, understanding, awareness, character, laughter, history, a sense of family, and a host of other positive ends by being together with these topics, adventures, challenges, and experiences. Such discussions can be brought home and offer opportunities for connection among families and friends, as well as moments of self-reflection and growth for individuals. ‘Embers’ get their name from the close of the day being like the embers of a fire.
