Campfire Service in Victoria

Under the tutelage of campfire experts Kat Goheen and Shannon McAdam over the past few Samish Family Reunions, and with a little help from Auntie Debra on the day, 12 year old Georgia Shirley led a full hour campfire service in Victoria.

Everyone had a great time from 4 years old to 98!

Thought for the Week

I will behave today

like the person I wish to become

The way to achieve my dreams is by living them now.

I release the fears and habits that have been holding me back.
