Camping & Teamwork

For our second podcast on Teamwork at Soft Skills 101: Life Skills for a Digital Age,  I recount an amazing month-long backpacking trip I took to the High Unitas Wilderness Area in Utah the summer before I started college. Camping is such a great way to build team-work as we find ourselves in situations that are free of normal distractions and have scheduled fun and different activities like backpacking, canoeing, and cooking over an open fire.

Camping often takes us to places of breathtaking natural beauty, re-orienting us to the fact that God is an amazing Creator, who delights in simple beauty.

For this post, we’ve rounded up some great camping tips and tricks, writing prompts and easy snack and meal ideas! Why not plan a camping trip sometime soon!
