There's nothing quite as relaxing as sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and swapping stories. One Sunday a month, we'll be stoking the fires here at LSNC. March-November, we'll provide a blazing outdoor campfire and plenty of marshmallows. Bring your family, friends, camp chairs, outdoor games, and s'mores fixings. December-February, we'll have an indoor fire with hot cocoa and tea. Bring a blanket to sit on, board games to play (we'll have some too), and sledding gear if there is snow. Outdoor fires are held rain or shine (except for thunder and lightening), so come dressed for the weather.
