5 Reasons Setting up a Christmas Tree Reminds Us of Camp

Tags Moose River Outpost

1. That smell. Its fresh, cool, and clean. Its just like camp. Except for the boys cabins. Other than that it’s just like camp.

2. Those pine needles that always find their way into the waist of your pants while you hang the lights… ugh. It reminds us of building that debris hut at Survival. Shower time.

3. A Christmas tree is best enjoyed with a cup of hot chocolate. We’ll admit it. Camp is best enjoyed that way too. Just remember to clean up the Swiss Miss wrappers when you’re done.

5. The glass balls make me think of trench dodgeball. Is that bad?


MRO family, we miss you.  As you enjoy the Christmas season, we encourage you to stay away from the malls and box stores, and find yourself some fresh cut authenticity this December.  Remember Jesus loves you more than you can imagine, and remember that your friends at MRO can’t wait to see you at the Winter Reunion, or back at camp.
