Camping Programs

Bring Stories to YOUR Camp

"Who's got my golden arm? Where is my golden arm?..." Storytelling has always been a memorable part of going to camp. Maybe you are lucky to have a natural-born storyteller on your staff. However, everyone can learn to have fun with stories!

Counselors will know exactly what to do when campers say "Tell us a story!"

Storytelling Training for Camp Counselors

Patti offers training to enhance the natural storytelling abilities of your entire camp staff. A short training at the beginning of summer provides practical assistance staff can use immediately to dramatically tell stories they already know and quickly learn new ones.

Training includes:

• Handouts, easy to follow guidelines, fun techniques, and games.

• Plus, storytelling books for your camp to keep.

As a former Girl Scout (all the way through High School) Patti has a special place in her heart for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.  Storytelling is a natural for these youth serving programs, and Patti often shares stories with scouts throughout the region.

Call now to reserve time during your pre-camp training.
Patti performs at group campouts, campgrounds, and special campfire events.
Patti is also available to perform for your campers, teach storytelling or creative drama, or provide stories for special events


Dear Patti,
Thank you so much for joining us at our Troop meeting. Both the scouts and their parents truly enjoyed your storytelling. Scouts are so often just pushed to advance and work on merit badges.  We want them to have fun along the way.  It was indeed a pleasure having you with us, and we will always keep your stories in our memories. I look forward to your joining us again in the future.

Loretta Rieger, Boy Scout Parent
