Candle & Rock Ceremony

After the Banquet, everyone goes to the campfire area and receives a small candle. Rich and Stephanie step forward to light the candles in the front row, and the single flame rapidly spreads throughout the assembly. With a closing thought, the entire assembly rises again to blow out their candles. Then every camper takes a painted rock with their name on it and lays it to rest in the great ā€œCā€ and ā€œLā€ formation. Here they leave their mark on camp like the generations before them.

Afterwards, the entire camp leaves the campfire area in silence and walks to the lodge lawn. A giant circle of friendship is formed, ending the last night of camp.
