Stuff to do on The Camping Trip


Just relax.

Take time to just relax around the camp fire. Meet new friends,
tell stories, take a nap. Relaxation keeps your heart healthier, cuts stress,
reduces muscle tension, improves brain function and memory, and helps
you avoid depression, anxiety, and obesity. It boosts your immune
system and helps alleviate the symptoms of many medical and psychological disorders.

Relaxing is important!

Daily Meetings

There are multiple meetings scheduled daily. Everything from “The Big Meeting”, or
“The Eating Meeting”, to Men’s, Women’s, Meditation or Big Book meetings.
If you want to host your own meeting, just put it up on the board!
